How the CPA affects my growing business

How the CPA affects my growing business Almal Foundation NPC will host Tumbo Scott Managing Director, Dr Tshepiso Scott, who will engage our budding and youth entrepreneurs on the importance of understanding how the Consumer Protection Act, 68 of 2008 (“Act”) affects your growing business. Dr Tshepiso Scott wiill engage in detail on what the risks and opportunities are for your business, whether you’re a supplier, manufacturer or service provider. Each business can benefit from understanding the Act and how to effectively enforce its provisions in your business, the risks of not conforming to the framework and why it becomes more and more important as your business grows. Attendees will be offered an opportunity to pose questions and give their own experiences to challenges they’ve had with consumers and learn how best to mitigate them within the ambit of the law. The session will also allow attendees to learn more about the benefits of having a lawyer for your business and what solutions the Tumbo Scott team can leverage for SMMEs. A networking opportunity will then take place where entrepreneurs will share their contact details and the services of products they need with and possibly establish business-to-business linkages. In the lead up to the event, we will host a live webinar session where visitors can register to listen in to the conversation between Dr Scott and our board member and Supplier Development Executive Mrs Mandisa Mpeko, about what attendees can expect. The webinar will go over who should attend the event and why, as well as the opportunities that exist in understanding the Act and more broadly on how compliance and building systems within your business creates value for your business. Dr Scott will drill in on key observations she made on her doctoral thesis on the Act. Persons interested in participating in the webinar and/or attending the event, must register below.
