Webinar: The way forward for SMEs

28 June 2020
How can SMEs survive in these trying times, and where will opportunities arise?

As Covid-19 continues to disrupt global economies, many affected businesses are seeking guidance to mitigate losses, ensure continuity and seek growth opportunities.

We know that the lockdowns and social distancing measures have disrupted your ability to cater to customer needs, supply chains, sales processes and even your team's productivity.

For the past few months, the priority has been to survive the crisis and to find some way to maintain solvency and cash flow.

Now, with the easing of restrictions, the next six months will be a defining period for SMEs in the region, as we try to discover what opportunities lie ahead.

This webinar on 30 June at 1 pm is the first from the Gulf Capital SME Insights Live series. It will look at the steps you can take to get through this next phase as you embark on the recovery journey and re-establish yourselves.
