The crucial evolution of an entrepreneur to become an effective SME business leader who attracts good talent, and can network successfully for growth, will be the focus of the Business Day Dialogues event being presented in association with Liberty Corporate on 15 August, in Johannesburg.
Strong attention on the SME sector is essential says Thesin Vandeyar, Divisional Director: Sales & Relationship Management Liberty Corporate: “Liberty Corporate has a strong focus on the SME sector because we recognise the important role that SME’s play in the development of the South African economy. We support the SME sector through promoting enterprise and supplier development programmes which enable SME’s to continue to grow and contribute to the country.”
The Business Day Dialogues provide an opportunity for the man in the street to engage directly with industry specialists, at intimate and highly-focussed breakfast events.
“The SME theme has been considered in close co-operation with the Business Day editorial team to ensure we attract high profile, expert participation,” says Taryn Westoby, Head of Tiso Blackstar Events.
The Business Day Dialogues incorporate a keynote address, followed by an expert panel discussion.
Steven Cohen, former Head of Sage One International will set the scene with a keynote address.
Panellists will include Tim Cohen (editor, Business Day), Thesin Vandeyar (Liberty Corporate), Lebo Gunguluza (Entrepreneur, Turnaround Strategist, Founder and Executive Chairman, Gem Group), and Phuti Mahanyele (former CEO of Shanduka Group; Executive Chairperson, Sigma Capital).
Alisha Sekham, Senior Anchor at Business Day TV will moderate the discussions that will look at how entrepreneurs and owners of small and medium-sized enterprises can effectively network to build useful professional relationships, attract and retain top talent, and become valuable leaders – not only in their businesses but also in the communities in which they operate.
The event will be hosted at The Empire conference venue at Tiso Blackstar Group’s new purpose-built offices in Parktown, Johannesburg.
