About the event

Customers not paying you on time?

Rising costs?

Customers purchasing less frequently?

Need to invest in your business but not certain where to turn?

Then join this engaging and informative event, focused on boosting your business resilience. SME Businesses have faced unprecedented challenges over the past few years with the pandemic, political uncertainties, and supply chain disruptions; and now with the announcement of a technical recession, it’s imperative that business owners take steps to ensure that their business is operating at its optimum.

Rising costs can be a challenge for business owners and it is overwhelming trying to keep a business afloat with uncertain economic conditions.

However, even with rising costs your business can still thrive!

• A health check on your business

• Tips on how to manage your cashflow

• How to keep an eye on yours, and your customers credit scores

• Identifying cost savings
