I’ve attended a handful of conferences. Some I had little anticipations for, yet was quite overwhelmed. Others where I went outside of my subject matter of expertise and learned about new skills. Regardless, I can’t think of a single conference that I regret attending.
Steward Bank is organizing the First edition of the National Entrepreneurs’ Forum which comes off at the Harare International Conference Centre on the 14th of September 2018.
The one-day forum, expected to bring together over 300 participants, will be on the theme of the forum will focus on Financial Literacy, Financial Inclusion, and SME Financing.
The fact is that 30% of new businesses won’t make it past 24 months. Those are heavy statistics that can make entrepreneurs think. But by attending a conference you could acquire the tools you need to make sure that your business is one of the few that doesn’t fail.
No matter how knowledgeable you are at your business, everyone can learn. Working in a small business venture can often be isolating, and without exposure to a variety of points of view, we can miss new ideas and trends that can impact future results. The educational aspect of a conference can expose you to new ways of conducting your business and help you discover how to be more productive.
