Zedoj has promised entrepreneurs that they will be treated to a workshop experience they will not forget as it introduces its Silent Success Workshop to Jamaica on December 2.

According to a press release, the Silent Success Workshop is aimed at entrepreneurs and the working class, to educate them on various topics simultaneously, using silent headphones.

The event is set to unfold on the poolside at Zedoj On The Ridge located at Mystic Ridge Resort, Ocho Rios.

Conceptualiser Jodianne Murdock believes that, “learning does not have to be boring. The aim is to provide a unique experience, while educating our members and listeners. Attendees will have the experience of listening to their chosen topic without interruption and the option to switch between channels to tune into another speaker, if they desire”

Speakers for the Silent Success Workshop are Raymore Williams, Dania Beckford and Eric Reittie.

Raymore Williams will present on ‘The 1st Step to Entrepreneurship’. A Tax Educator, Williams will present to listeners on the ‘GREEN CHANNEL’, on the importance of registering their business, tax obligations, protecting their business name and understanding assets vs liability.

Dania Beckford will present on ‘Growing your business on Social Media’ on the ‘BLUE CHANNEL’. She boasts 10 years, formal experience as a Brand Communication Specialist and is currently the Director of Entertainment in the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports.

‘THE RED CHANNEL’,  will be for listeners who are not entrepreneur aspirants, but desire to grow within the organization they work for.  This presentation will be done by Eric Reittie, Senior Financial Analyst for Payments at NCB.

According to Murdock, “The silent component to the workshop experience will not take away from one on one interaction between participants, this method actually encourages more focused interactions. Speakers will present for approximately 30 Minutes through headphones and listeners may document questions on white boards.  A Q&A session will follow after the presentation along with one on one interactions with the presenters for additional questions”.

All are invited and guests will be greeted at 7:00 pm on December 2 with a welcome drink with the colour of their chosen topic. The workshop will commence at 7:30 pm. Admission is J$1,800 along with a valid Government ID to secure each headphone.

Murdock noted, “Just as the recently held Red Tie and Stiletto, the Zedoj mission is to create unique events to entertain, motivate, empower and educate while we grow”.

Plans are afoot for Silent Workshops in Kingston, Montego Bay and Mandeville for early 2018, Murdock said.
