Dear Rev. Kenneth

Spring is finally here and hopefully it will start warming up soon!

With the first quarter of the year firmly behind us we are currently in the process of reviewing our new workshop offer that we will be rolling out in the next couple of months, so watch this space.

In the meantime our current offer is focused on how our SMMEs can gain experience and possible contract opportunities from attending Meet The Buyer events as well as encouraging more SMMEs to think about entering for a business award, which would help propel their profile and attract more business opportunities.

Also due to popular demand and with the deadline fast approaching, we have added another GDPR workshop, focused on getting you ready for Friday 25 May 2018.

Please do take a look through the upcoming events below and book through our Evenbrite page to secure your place. You will also have  the opportunity to meet and network with other business owners.
