Wouldn’t it be great to know what makes some small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) really successful? What advice do SMEs need when planning a sales and marketing strategy? At what stage should technology be brought into the picture? What about intellectual property issues? And cash-flow management?

These questions and more will be the hot topics at the 2018 Business Day TV SME Summit on March 8 in Parktown, Johannesburg.

Standard BankCredit Guarantee and the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants are the headline partners of this year’s event, which aims to “ignite growth potential” among small-business owners and entrepreneurs. And Adams & Adams joins as a Corporate partner, along with BDOFundingHub and GROW.

The Business Day TV SME Summit provides an opportunity for small-business owners, entrepreneurs, incubators, franchisors, investors and suppliers to the SME sector to come together and engage experts in the fields of business, technology, marketing and investment.

Conference topics include:

  • Reimagine the lightbulb: protecting and leveraging SMEs’ intellectual property in the 21st century | Darren Olivier – Partner, Adams & Adams
  • The importance of cash-flow management for small businesses
  • How an effective sales and marketing strategy can get your business to the next level

The 2018 Business Day TV SME Summit will take place at The Empire Conference & Events Venue in Parktown on March 8.
