– Start Your Business (SYB) enables potential entrepreneurs with a business idea to develop a bankable business plan.
– Improve Your Business (IYB) enables existing entrepreneurs to develop their skills in buying, stock control, marketing, costing, record keeping, business planning and human resource management.
– Expand Your Business (EYB) enables entrepreneurs to develop a business growth strategy.

With a network of more than 400 Master trainers and 55,000 trainers in over 100 countries, SIYB is one of the biggest and most well-tested business management training programme globally.
