Free Webcasts Educate SMEs

Free Webcasts Educate SMEs


The webcasts, an initiative by Standard Bank, take practical business hints and tips online and directly to small enterprises.

Entrepreneurs who have longed for on-tap expert advice on how to run a small business will have access to a series of online webcasts by leading specialists on all facets of setting up, managing and growing their business.

The aim is to equip small enterprises with valuable insights, knowledge and guidance, all accessible from an entrepreneur’s own office or home.

The Business Coach webcast series will provide practical advice on topics ranging from starting a business to more complex matters such as company law, planning for profitability and handling tax matters correctly.

Contributions will come from specialist experts including the Business Coach, Greg Mason.

The expert advice will extend beyond the actual webcast, as viewers will also be able to engage with the specialists in real-time as they view the webcast. Viewers can pose questions to the relevant business expert through an online forum and Twitter, and questions will be answered during the course of the webcast.

Webcast details

The webcasts will be streamed every two weeks from 19 March until 2 October 2013. They will run at 17:30. Access to the series will be free of charge.
