Where is your industry, business or sector going?

A lot is happening. The City of Durban, for example, is set for a “facelift” that may cost up to a trillion rand. Are coastal organisations leveraging Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment to get some of the business opportunities that will follow from that?

South Africa is in a technical recession. What confluence of social, racial and political factors allowed that to happen? Can businesses, yours included, help change that situation?

At this event, we will touch on what the surprises in the Mining Charter mean for every other sector. While we are at it, what socio-economic trends are the property sector codes responding to?

Did Toyota-SA have a blind spot on its stakeholder map, leading to protests by taxi drivers?

Why is Twitter angry at OUTsurance, and could your business be implicated in the race/sexuality wars Spur has been caught in? What can we learn from how Spur has handled its crises? Could what they did have been improved upon? Is your business next?

Is ABSA being targeted by political parties? Why? Also, what’s with race and the Cape Town restaurants? What’s up with racism and private schools?

We might not be able to cover all of this in a single session. Also, it’s structured for interactivity, so other hot South African talking points may come up. But the economic impact will always be at the centre.

Make your way to these cities to join in, or let us know if you and your organisation would like us to come to where you are, resources permitting.
