Think, Plan, Implement & Grow

Fairweather Business Empowerment Solutions, trading as Fairweather Consulting, was founded in 2016 by the Director and CEO, Sanchia Fairweather. The company focusses on Marketing, Strategy & Business Development for companies of all sizes, with a specialisation in Enterprise & Supplier Development.

Fairweather Consulting follows the process: Think; Plan, Implement & Grow. The CEO has over 10 years’ experience in her field.

You have taught me more than the lessons I needed in the field of business. Beyond being our mentor, you were also our friend. The constructive advice you have given, as well as the practical lessons you have shared in class, have encouraged me to work hard to reach my goal of being a businessman.

Mangaliso Mashinini
Owner of Ndingima Projects

I had a few clients a month for over two years because I was just operating with my own knowledge of what a business is or should be. Now my clientele has grown massively, and my assets have doubled in just a few months. My confidence burst and my knowledge as well. Thank you Sanchia for being the best consultant because you make this super easy.

Wendy Twele
Owner of Qhawekazi Designs

You became like a sister to me, in the way that I always felt comfortable when you were talking. People like me who never had the opportunity to go to school, are afraid. Your commitment and availability to me really made an impact and changed me, as much as the company is still new without any funds. You helped the Syd's Fine Food business to get off the ground.

Sydney Madliwa
Owner of Ndingima Projects

I'm 35 years old. I have a company in the Vredenburg township. With the help of Sanchia from Fairweather Consulting, my business is doing great. Without her, it was bad. It's only a few months with her assistance, but I got a sponsorship due her great guidance. Thanks for taking my business to another level, from 50 customers a month to 300 a month, and my business assets have grown. I am in the process of opening another branch around the West Coast.

Mandla Nofingxana
Owner of Ekasi Braai & Gas

Sanchia, we can't wait to be with you. We always learn something new. Take care.

David Beddingfield
Owner of Beddingfield Investment Group

I would like to thank Sanchia for the effort she made to keep on motivating us as small businesses. As from now on, I want to open another business of the same kind in another place in need of the services.

Lusapho Thubeni
Owner of Lukhanyolwethu Technologies

Hiermee wil ek my dank uitspreek aan Sanchia Fairweather wat ons die klasse kom aanbied het by Vredenburg Munisipaliteit. Sy het vir my en my besigheid baie beteken. Ek was bietjie onervare hoe om my besigheid reg te bestuur, maar sy was van groot hulp en het uit haar pad gegaan om my en die ander in die groep te help. Sy loop die ekstra myl om te help waar sy kan en was baie geduldig met ons. Weereens baie dankie Sanchia, hou aan met di goeie werk.

Katrina Jeremiah
Owner of Shalom Baking

Under Sanchia's mentorship and guidance, our business went from an idea on paper to an MVP and ultimately our first paying customer within six months. Sanchia provided us with guidance gained from both an academic and hands-on perspective, which we found invaluable. However, our most significant benefit working with Sanchia was her ability to keep our business wheels turning by holding us accountable and motivating us to prevent burnout. Without Sanchia by our side, we do not believe that we would have progressed as quickly as we did, and for this, we are highly grateful.

Khalid Fadal
Owner of Tactical Decisions CI

Good morning Sanchia. You once trained me in 2019. I would like to inform you that I am now attending the Seriti Entrepreneurship Academy 2022. I am on the brink of securing a 3-year contract. Thanks to you.
