You could be forgiven for thinking farming would be beyond the influences of major technology developments; after all, it’s not farmers presenting the latest Microsoft or Apple presentation. Yet technology matters to farming as much as it does to any industry: more efficient tech means more efficient work and outcomes. But, like most, changing tradition can be a hard fought battle - especially when maintaining a particular way of doing thing is what has kept a business alive for…Continue

People look at their situations; they…

One way to define Africa’s challenge is a lot of us do not know how to embed ourselves in the world economy, provide innovatively and freely without trying to rope in perceived gatekeepers.
At the backdrop of the South African Post Office having ‘going concern’ challenges, there are a number of local courier companies mushrooming. Interesting!

The key to a successful business can’t be captured easily, but it does rely on certain skills we all may need. The most important may be the ability to engage, communicate and generally interact with others in an amicable, professional and welcoming way. We cannot underestimate how important this is; consider that careers have been broken or made based almost entirely on how we conduct ourselves.
This is particularly the case now, in the age of…Continue

As far as odd couples go, the Pope and Shakira is one of my new favourites. You wouldn’t necessarily think of putting them on the same stage, but that’s just what the UN did when they adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) last week. The SDGs are the successors to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and largely dictate the…Continue
