About 25% of companies in Africa close due to lack of sales. In some African countries that ratio is 65%. That underperformance impacts the job market, and especially the youth.
Firms employing 20 or more are most likely to cite inadequate skills and lack of sales mindset as a constraint to business growth.
Western companies are seeking to increase their capital investments, but they face a challenge in finding a trustworthy roadmap that can provide them with the necessary guidance and knowledge to make well-informed decisions and get more sales.
With that in mind, finding sustainable solutions to help companies get more sales and develop talents is not just a business opportunity, it becomes a mission. Passion led us here.
That's why Elite Waraba was launched.

Our mission: To accelerate jobs creation and help organizations scale through competent sales professionals.
Our vision: To be the address for competent sales professionals in Africa.
Our belief: Because growth comes from sales and people, therefore everyone must have a sales mindset.
Our values: ODPP
Organization: Planning what we want to achieve and knowing who will do it with, where, when, and with needed support materials
Discipline: Doing what we said we would do, at the moment we said we would do it, whether we want to do it or not.

Performance: Making numbers and facts the basis of our decision-making process.
Only 3 millions out of the 18 millions jobs needed are being created annually.
The creation of job opportunities comes from organization's growth and growth comes from sales. Every company we help to get more sales is a seed planted for more job opportunities.
Sales is a key essential department for any organization. By building a compensation model with the frontline of business acquisition in mind and by getting more sales we then increase the purchasing power of many. Especially in Africa where behind an earning professional there are 10 people being supported.
Continuous training and education is essential to grow. Many companies do not yet have that culture. By making training affordable and impactful we hope to drive a behavior change in many local organizations in operating countries.
Quality of Life
We only work with companies with useful and reputable products or services. Therefore we are contributing in making the world a better place.
Value of Relationship
One of the greatest sales channel of all times is a sales through referral. Our RecoTontine service will get people to always be genuinely interested in others and care.
Sales growth shouldn't be the concern of solely the sales department. Moreover, whoever you are and whatever you do, you have to sell your ideas, project, service, solution, advice... to anyone of interest. Such a sales mindset will help us all move faster, be accountable and solution oriented.
