BusinessLIVE: Leadership in small business
FRANK DIALOGUE ON SMALL BUSINESS LEADERSHIP IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BUSINESS DAY DIALOGUES AND UNISA SBL
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are key contributors to the South African economy. To survive in the current volatile economy, SME leaders need to implement a leadership style promoting the survival of businesses. Therefore, it’s essential for leaders to be able to inspire, motivate and provide a clear direction for their team. SMEs globally are known to be the mechanism to generate new jobs. In many countries small businesses employ almost 70% of the active working population. Join us at the next Business Day Dialogues, in partnership with Unisa’s Graduate School of Business Leadership (Unisa SBL), as we host a Frank Dialogue on the state of SME leadership to mark Global Entrepreneurship Month. The dialogue is part of a series of thought leadership events that the business school will host regularly to generate a discourse on various national issues. Prof Onkgopotse JJ Tabane will be moderating the fascinating discussion with small business development minister Stella Tembisa Ndabeni-Abrahams; Small Business Institute CEO John Dludlu; Dr Colene Hind, a lecturer in entrepreneurship at the Unisa SBL; I Am An Entrepreneur chairman Andile Khumalo; and Gauteng Enterprise Propellor CEO Saki Zamxaka, as they discuss the opportunities and challenges of leadership in small businesses.
