Launch of Women's Empowerment Programme for registered SME's

Business & Professional Women (BPW SA), and the Department of Trade & Industry (the dti) are hosting a business breakfast on 7 August 2014 to launch a unique three-day Women's Empowerment Programme in South Africa to provide registered SME's with the legislative knowledge required to effectively run their business within the parameters of South African law.

The breakfast is hosted by DDG Mr Mojalefa Mohoto and DDG Mrs Pumla Ncapayi from the DTI and BPW South Africa as well as senior representatives from the JSE and UN-Women and the Commonwealth Business Council. Various international ambassadors and high commissioners will host tables at the event. A sponsorship fund will be launched at the breakfast for qualifying enterprises.

Organisations of all sizes in South Africa need to develop and apply sound governance, risk and compliance principles and institute high ethical values. Failure to do so will have devastating consequences for the organisation, including penalties.

For SMEs, the biggest challenge is a lack of understanding around the difficulties associated with becoming compliant. Understanding the ever-changing regulations makes the difference between a small business thriving - growing the economy and creating jobs - or closing its doors, and thus closing the door on job creation.

Simply put, you need to know your laws. Know your rights and obligations. In this way you mitigate risk to yourself, your business, your employees and your customers. If done well, it helps to improve business performance and ensure financial success.

If you would like to be part of this Women's Empowerment Programme, we invite you to join us at this Business Breakfast - tickets are R500 per person or R5,000 per table of 10.
