Looking at the current economic condition and the threat that it poses to business owners and their businesses. It is therefore imperative to embark on initiatives that will empower South African SMMEs in order to eliminate challenges that will affect the economic growth of our country even further, such as job losses.
If a company is not generating the desired revenue or meeting its sales targets, unfortunately, that could result in job losses, and that will cripple the economy of our country even further. Through the SME Growth Champions Seminar, we aim to equip our delegates with insight and business tools that will enable them to run profitable and sustainable Small Businesses.
“This seminar strives to provide business owners and entrepreneurs with practical solutions and tools for effective business operations management,” says Angel Selebano, Marketing Manager of SME South Africa.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE SEMINAR?
Top five things that attendees can expect to gain from the seminar are:
• The importance of having the right people on board in order to grow your business and how to lead a winning team;
• Cost effective ways of marketing your business product and/or services online;
• How to identify your business drivers in order to maximising profits;
• Developing and incorporating a customer focus business formula into the overall business operational processes
• How to price your product, service or solution to ensure that there is profitability
“As an entrepreneur, I have first-hand experience on the challenges of starting up a business and ensuring that there is enough money to build and grow the business, says Velly Bosega, Founder and Managing Director of AdClick Africa Media Group and Publisher of SME South Africa.
Bosega says that through the seminar – he wants to empower SMMEs to better manage their businesses and most importantly to enable them to run businesses that will be in operation for many years to come.
