Alex and I met with Sunil from the Technical College of Fiji. We gained an insight into the services offered by the technical college and gained a strong relationship with Sunil. Initially, he was not interested in the idea of having a 'business' school in his Technical college, however, once we explained that we were thinking about attaching the SoCon workshops as more of a secondary option in the Technical College, such as running a workshop on a Friday afternoon, he was much more...

We met with the office of FHEC in an attempt to further understand the steps we would need to take in order to get our module accredited.

We have met with the Sigatoka based FCOSS, and also with the Nadi based office as well. We also have a meeting tentatively organised for Thursday in Suva. These meetings have been encouraging, as FCOSS has mentioned their previous intentions of running workshops, however, they never came to fruition. From this, they were incredibly excited at the idea of SoCon preparing workshops to hit the main areas which they were going to cover, and even some more additional content. We are preparing to...
