James Caan to host CNBC business series to help SMEs
The second series of The Business Class presented by James Caan will debut on 7th October.
The programme returns with a focus to help small and medium-sized businesses grow and prosper. Each 30-minute episode will see Caan joined by experts from a cross-section of industries, to give strategic business advice to six of the UK’s most innovative SMEs and help them improve their business model and boost profits.
The seven-part series will air every other week from 7th October at 10.00pm. The series is sponsored by Bizcrowd, the free online community for UK businesses, powered by RBS and NatWest.
The six featured UK companies face different challenges in their business cycle and are taken from a variety of sectors including technology, financial services, manufacturing, retail and professional services.
Caan uses his first hand experience of creating and managing successful companies to discuss the challenges faced by SMEs and to offer advice. In each episode, a guest entrepreneur will join James to provide their own candid insight and tips for growth.
“With some fresh signs of economic recovery in the UK, there is no better time to grow a small business,” says Caan.
“This new series will take a look at some dynamic companies that have the scope to grow and compete nationally and internationally. Each has its own unique set of challenges and with an industry expert, I hope to give each SME some valuable advice.”
The other companies featured in future episodes include Crowdcube, Pai Skincare, Morphsuits and Notgoingtouni.
