Press release

 Share This On:

PRESS RELEASE – The St. Lucia Youth Business Trust in conjunction in conjunction with the Micoud North Constituency Council is offering to young entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs of Micoud and environs a “Microsoft Boot-Camp.”

The objective of this workshop is to encourage and motivate the youth to be more self-reliant and assist them in understanding how the various aspects of Microsoft software can be used in their professional and everyday life, from writing a business plan in “Word” preparing for a presentation in “PowerPoint” or record keeping in “Excel”. These are all tools the youth need to be versed in when trying to establish their own business.

The workshop will be facilitated by Mr. Hughan Smith, an instructor and author, with extensive experience and an excellent track record in the business community as a trainer.

The workshop will be held on Friday 26th June, 2015 from 9:00a.m. To 3:00p.m at the Micoud Multi-Purpose Centre.

Please contact the St. Lucia Youth Business Trust for further information at 758-452-3165 or email or [email protected]

  1. Yng Entrpr from Mic

    Appreciate the effort but I think it should be geared towards the school students, which I believe is already being done.

    As for encouraging and motivating the youth to be more self-reliant in business, learning Microsoft software to create a business plan or keep records in excel are of their least concerns.

    I would suggest some community building by identifying the "real" issues that these individuals are facing and working on a more realistic approach to assisting them (that will actually work).

    Workshops ideas:
    1.)Teaching youth to be Self-reliant - Personal Development Workshops.

    2.)Assisting youth in Running Business & Professional lives - Problem solving and Training Workshops.

  2. Such crap!!! Sounds like MS is sponsoring.

  3. Efforts are most definitely misplaced. It is not a "that or nothing " attitude that should be our response to our economic or unemployment situation either. What should be our NATIONAL leapfrogging objective a la LPM?
