What’s the Live Q & A about?

The Live Q & A session is a segment within the long-running The Big Small Business Show as aired on Business Day TV (channel 412 on DSTV). It’s all about answering the burning questions that SME owners and aspiring entrepreneurs have about the various challenges and opportunities around doing business in South Africa.

This segment is special in that it centers around your questions as part of our live studio audience – you can ask anything about your business and our experts Allon Raiz CEO of Raizcorp (link to bio) and Kumaran Padayachee CEO of Spartan SME Finance (link to bio) will answer them.

Our seating is limited to 21 entrepreneurs in the live audience, at any given recording – so please submit your question to us and you could be invited to be part of this audience.

If you’re selected, you’ll be advised of the date and time of recording. If you’re not able to attend, you’ll be invited for the next round of recordings.

How will it work?

How it works is that we select audience members based on the relevance of their questions and how useful these could be to other SME owners and entrepreneurs.

To qualify to attend:

  • you’re an SME owner/entrepreneur

  • you’ve submitted a great question for the Q & A

  • you’re able to physically attend as part of the live studio audience

Some important things to keep in mind as this is a live recording:

  • no late-comers will be allowed in

  • all cell phones off

  • no photography

  • no leaving during the duration of recording (+- 4hrs)

The next filming is:

  • Tuesday 15 October, seated at 11h30, until 16h00 (+- 4 hours)

  • at The Business Exchange, 116 Oxford Road, Rosebank, Gauteng

Our audience is arranged in advance with qualifying participants – so if you can’t appear in our next episode you can still appear in one later.

Don’t forget to bring your business cards – there are plenty of networking opportunities available.
