“The idea to organize this workshop series was mooted after the success of Maybank Building Capacity and Capability Seminar for SMEs nationwide roadshow 2016 where I was the key speaker for 8 locations. Many SMEs know the importance to leverage on branding and the need to be more efficient in operation but just do not know where to start and how to justify their case to their management. As such, Maybank and BIZSPHERE decided to collaborate again to give greater insights to SMEs. In this workshop series, we go in-depth providing statistics, processes, templates, case studies to give the SMEs much clearer idea so to start them off.” says Keng Teck, Managing Consultant of BIZSPHERE Brand and Marketing Group.
