Serial entrepreneur Howard Keating, CEO of the Keating Network, is launching a global business satellite and Web radio program Jan. 24. It will simulcast on Keating’s www.keatingnetwork.com.
The aim of the show is to boost job creation by small business.
“Everything else has failed,” Keating said. “It’s time for the small and medium enterprises of the world to join us to rebuild their businesses, communities and the global economy.”
The Howard Keating Show will offer access to sales, business loans and networking with businesses around the world — establishing business opportunities, building partnerships and seeking guidance.
“Small businesses aren’t small when we build a collective body,” Keating said.
The show will air weekdays from 5 to 8 p.m. Eastern time — the first hour on XM 158, simulcast on the Keating Network Web site, which will carry the entire three hours.
Keating says the show will welcome global business and governmental leaders to the program in order to set up working relationships and joint participation to grow small and big business together.
And, he said, unlike other business-oriented programs, “The Howard Keating Show” offers a fresh, new,solution-based approach by offering call-in advice and solutions live on the air — listening to deals being made with various small businesses, loans being awarded, and other business
The first hour will include expert guests offering “street” advice. With half of new businesses failing within five years, says CNN Money, guests will give professional insights and tips on how they survived. The remaining two hours on the Web site will be dedicated detailing guests’ offerings. Ongoing conversations will also be held during the show via various social networking platforms.
Keating has been involved with more than 25 start-up companies and 16 turnarounds within the national and international business communities. His business experience spans a wide range of industries including research and development, manufacturing, software, broadcasting, electronics, industrial and residential land development, alternative energy, biotech, health care, remote imaging and venture capital.
Keating has been a guest lecturer at universities, private educational institutes and more than 60 international trade consulates focusing on issues surrounding small business.
