On April 21, 2021, IDEA organized a webinar for those interested in the opportunities to do business in the flower business, like flower arrangements. This webinar was presented by Mrs. Marylaine Croes, Store Manager at Fantastic Garden Aruba. Mrs. Croes has a Bachelor’s Degree in Plant Science. In the webinar, she explained the varieties of flowers that can be grown in Aruba, in a very creative way, including climate-appropriate types. She also explained the process of making flower arrangements like making bouquets and other arrangements incorporated in gifts, how to care for flowers, and the required vitamins for healthy and colorful flowers.
On April 30, IDEA together with ActionCOACH Aruba, organized the second webinar called Women Entrepreneurship for women. The first Women Entrepreneurship webinar took place in March as March was the month that we celebrate International Women’s day. The second webinar was titled “From Entrepreneur to Entrepreneurship”. During this webinar, Mr. Dave Martinus, Certified Business Coach, talked primarily about the Big Five characteristics of a personality, the characteristics of a business personality, business knowledge, personal characteristics to become a unique entrepreneur, the business process, the difference in business definition and being an entrepreneur and the characteristics of an entrepreneur.
Both webinars took place on Zoom and Google Meet and counted 21 participants. IDEA is very satisfied with the content of these webinars and the feedback received from the participants at the end of each webinar. Both webinars were very creative and contained plenty of valuable information and questions from the participants and an outstanding presentation given by Mrs. Marylaine Croes and Mr. Dave Martinus.
In the upcoming months, IDEA will be organizing a series of the webinar Women Entrepreneurship (WE). IDEA will continue on the path focussing on the female group but will also keep organizing more webinars in 2021 aimed at those wanting to start a business or already have a business including those who want more business knowledge. IDEA is currently busy with the course
‘Empresario Prepara I’ and anyone interested in participating in one of the subjects offered in the program can contact IDEA by email L.email@example.com for more information about the program and payment.
A special thanks go to all participants including Mrs. Croes and Mr. Martinus who shared their expertise with all participants. IDEA will be hosting more events and webinars during 2021 and will provide additional information of these events in due time on their Facebook page @Idea-Aruba.
