TESTIMONIALS

We are delighted with these awards which echo our commitment to building capacity, expertise and knowledge and to create a platform which materially contributes to the economy.

To be recognised as a company that prioritises supplier development and one that has shown merit in design thinking, innovation and commitment is a great honour, especially after our programme was only launched officially in 2018. We will continue leveraging our assets and resources to create new opportunities for the economically excluded.

Lusapho Njenge, ESD Manager, EXXARO

Was a real honour to be part of the discussion. Look forward to connecting and making a difference

Dr Ridwaan Asvat, Director: Operations, Regent Business School

I thoroughly enjoyed the session and will be taking few things from the shared experiences.

….The consistency and focus of our collective message was inspiring! My big take out of this session was: “It’s great to be part of team South Africa”! If we can all just get on and do the job we’d be stunning as a national collective!

Charles Wyeth, ESD Manager, Distell

I know there are Teams making sure the event is successful.I congratulate everyone for having made the event a success against very challenging time. Well done. We will be participating next year.
