Officially as at the end of 2014, I was gainfully involved as follows: Director -Kezia Consulting Group, Board Member -BPESA Western Cape (@bpesact) , Advisory Board Member -BLDE Consulting, Trustee -Ubuntu Wellness Trust and Founder/Chairman – Spirit Dominion Foundation. I also took on a few young people on a mentorship programme to help shape SMME space directly. From the onset, the year 2015 was going to be extremely busy indeed.
As the year 2015 opened, I was invited as a Board Member of BPESA Western Cape to accompany BPESA Western Cape CEO (and then interim national CEO of BPESA), Gareth Pritchard hosted by Achievement Awards COO, Barry Coltman at their facility in Cape Town. The guests for the day were, MBA students from Cornell University in New York and we presented on South Africa as a business opportunity from a global perspective. For obvious reasons, we zoned in on BPO sector and how that has managed to attract circa 25 000 jobs (and counting) into the country from mainly the UK and parts of Europe. #2015Reminiscence
