EDITOR’S LET TER

In its latest report, the bank projected the economic growth rate for South Africa to be 1.7% in 2020. It takes a while to recover after being devoured from the inside out. For over a decade and a half, through the good times and the challenging ones, Topco Media has been celebrating success among South African businesses, government departments, organisations and individuals. We have a long view of the stamina, resilience, perseverance and active citizenry that characterise our country. Our front cover this year is graced by CEO of Business Leadership South Africa, Bonang Mohale (who described the Investment Summit chaired by President Ramaphosa as an embarrassing success), and our lead article is an interview with this dynamic South African whose book, Lift as you Rise, reflects his commitment to transformational leadership. In this the 17th edition of Top Performing Companies & Public Sector, R-Squared Digital looks at the growing trend of influencer marketing, and how, by having the correct alignment with your brand, you can grow your business in leaps and bounds.

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP THE BUSINESS OF DOING GOOD BY THULI MADONSELA

W

hen the architects of our democracy drafted the Constitution, I think they had in mind a society similar to that which exists in Massachusetts. One where

the government makes a concerted effort to create an enabling environment; one that is predicated on social justice, where people believe that cruelty is wrong and kindness is the ethos. I won’t pretend it’s a perfect system, but what I love about it is that the people who live there have a conscious desire to do good and make other people feel good about themselves. It is a society of

conscious good-doers constantly looking to eliminate social injustice. Our Constitution – one of the best in the world – with its particular focus on equality, human dignity and freedom, has all the ingredients of a society similar to the one in Massachusetts. However, we face the triple challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment, all of which need to be addressed in ways that resonate with the spirit of our Constitution. In addressing the issue of unemployment in South Africa, human solidarity is going to be extremely important. An emerging industry in the US is social entrepreneurship. In South Africa, we need to find a way to provide services to communities; this means that government and companies offload some of their corporate social investments to genuine social enterprises. This, in turn, becomes another source of employment and adds value to humanity. Social entrepreneurship at Harvard is no longer seen as something reserved only for bored housewives or good-hearted rich people. It’s seen as a niche area for alternative employment in which value can be added to society. You get a sense of feeling good for doing good and, at the same time, you’re improving employment, poverty and inequality.

THE BUSINESS OF PROSPERITY CREATING GROWTH THAT BENEFITS ALL SOUTH AFRICANS BY BONANG MOHALE

I

n his 2018 State of the Nation Address, President Cyril Ramaphosa committed to set South Africa on a new growth path towards inclusive

development. “As we pursue higher levels of economic growth and investment, we need to take additional measures to reduce poverty and meet the needs of the unemployed. This year, we will be initiating measures to set the country on a new path of growth, employment and transformation,” he said. This statement is a direct challenge to the conventional belief that we have achieved progress thanks to growth. The evidence is much more nuanced. As a matter of fact, Tabea Kabinde, Chairperson of the Employment Equity Commission, launched a devastating report in June 2018 that demonstrates a deterioration in the representation of blacks in positions of leadership from 14.4% in 2017 to 14.3% in 2018. This, at a time that the country and Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA) are calling for the redoubling of efforts, is not only disappointing but sad, tragic and regrettable. Statistics like these defeat nation-building and prolong the journey towards social cohesion. Countries that succeeded in achieving high levels of human development, from Scandinavia to South Korea, did so because of purposeful restrictions on the growth-at-all-costs model. They pursued income and wealth redistribution, protected families and communities, guaranteed a good work–life balance and invested heavily in social welfare.

What is needed instead of benign neglect is an agreement that rewarding employment for a full spectrum of people should be a fundamental goal of business and government. Indeed, with that objective as a starting point, it will be necessary to develop ways to increase both the competitiveness and the inclusiveness of the economy. A new growth path is needed. This includes forms of business that reconcile human needs with production processes, investment models that emancipate people from passive roles as consumers, and systems of social organisation at the local level that reconnect individuals with their communities and their ecosystems.

you are thinking of scaling up. It doesn’t matter where you operate from – whether it’s from a garage, an old RDP house or the boot of your car.

AND LASTLY, IT DOES HELP TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INCOME AND CASH, AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU NEED TO INVEST FOR GROWTH, REINVEST FOR JOBS AND REINVEST FOR SCALING UP. Most small and medium enterprises do not scale, and some of the companies that are founder-run or managed do not necessarily scale because all of us get married to the things we’ve created; we don’t want to let go. So when you do grow, let go. Go and get yourself an absolute professional who’s passionate about what you do, allow them to innovate and watch your business fly.

Your book, Lift as You Rise, has an interesting title considering you are businessman operating in a capitalist environment. Can you give us some insight as to what’s on the inside? “Lift as you rise” is an African adage that says you don’t have to wait until you are king, queen, MD, CEO or president to be beneficent. As you take two steps forward, extend a hand. Lift as you rise because that’s what contributes to the well-being of the community, and the well-being of society. We have to reinvest in the communities that made us who we are. Lift as you rise is a commitment, a call to action, that says we can make a huge difference if all of us made our own contribution. It reminds me of the parable of the loaves and fish: we have more than the world needs but are holding it and keeping it to ourselves.

A

s consumers use the internet and social media to research almost everything marketed to them,

companies are realising the importance of social media in communicating to their audiences – both existing and emerging – more effectively. The shift from traditional marketing models to those that use influencers has profoundly impacted brands and companies. The reality is, however, that most marketers still don’t understand how to incorporate influencer marketing into their overarching brand strategy. While the concept still eludes many brands, it can provide a nearly 800% return on investment, making it one of the most important tools in a marketer’s box. WHAT IS INFLUENCER MARKETING? Influencer marketing focuses on creating awareness on an individual level by word-ofmouth marketing. Influencers have credibility and influence over a large network of people. These individuals have a significant impact on vertical markets and/or social media platforms. Brands and agencies partner with influencers in order to create authentic engagement and awareness around products and services.

MINING SECTOR

GOING FOR GOLD BY ELSKE JOUBERT The mining industr y in South Africa remains a vital component of the countr y’s economy. The sector contributes approximately R8 for ever y R100 produced by the national economy and employs 2.5% of the national workforce. Mining remains the largest industr y in Nor th West, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and Nor thern Cape.

2018: A MIXED BAG OF PERFORMANCE The 2018 financial year was a challenging year for the mining industry in South Africa; however, commodities like iron ore, coal, manganese and chrome performed well. Says Michal Kotzé, PwC Africa Energy Utilities & Resources Leader: “2018 can be described as a mixed bag of performance for South Africa’s mining industry, with bulk commodity prices continuing to rise during 2018 from the lows at the beginning of 2016, while precious metals continued to struggle. Together with the gold and platinum impairments, it meant that the industry recorded a loss for 2018.”

SA’S LATEST MINING CHARTER South Africa’s latest Mining Charter is aimed at sharing the benefits of the country’s mineral wealth more equally among its citizens. However, according to AngloGold Ashanti Chairman Sipho Pityana, the Charter doesn’t provide solutions to the industry’s challenges and will make it difficult for companies to buy and sell assets. “South Africa risks driving away new investment and crippling its mining sector if ‘reckless’ new rules are implemented. When the industry says to you that what you are proposing will kill the industry, you should sit up and listen,” Pityana said in an interview at Bloomberg’s Johannesburg office. “Layers and layers of these things make mining an uninvestable proposition and you are talking about an industry that basically has its back up against the wall.”

30

Top Performing 17 th Edition

Negative perceptions about the new mining regulations could have ripple effects through the entire South African economy. “If you have gold miners desperately looking for investors and you say, ‘by the way, you also have to contend with this,’ I don’t think you are going to have a long queue of suitors,” Pityana said. “Consensus is not just about protecting the mining industry, but it’s also about protecting the image of the country that we don’t do things in a reckless way.”

2019 INVESTING IN AFRICAN MINING INDABA

President Cyril Ramaphosa, the first South African president to speak at the Indaba, relayed the importance of the mining industry as a key player in our economy. This year’s Indaba focused on, among other themes, resource nationalism, innovations in technology, battery metals, and diversity in mining and sustainable development. “We have prioritised the restoration of a policy and regulatory environment that is stable and predictable. Significant work has been done to remove the uncertainty that held back the development of the industry. “We have emerged from a period of strained relations where the courts became the main platform of engagement between the industry and government. We recognise the critically important role that mining can and must still play in shaping the future of our country,” Ramaphosa said.


M I N I N G S E C T O R OV E R V I E W

2 0 1 9 A N D B E YO N D The Top 40 mining companies are enjoying a bounce back; however, temptations loom for industry and stakeholders. They will need to stay focused and deliberate towards achieving the long-term goal of creating sustainable value for all stakeholders. In particular, a watching brief will be on the following issues: Financial capital • Manage increased shareholder demands • Consider response to more private equity entrants on an investment-for- value basis and subsequent disruption Intellectual capital • Maintain relentless focus on costs Human capital • Manage technology and workforce considerations Market disruption • Ongoing macro-economic fluctuations including sanctions and tariffs • Increased vertical integration as

Manufacturing capital • Address deficit in CapEx and exploration levels while maintaining investment disciplines Social and relations • Address stakeholder demands, including changing environmental regulation and tax regimes

T O P 1 0 M I N I N G I N D U S T R Y M U S T- D O S 1. Bring digital to life

Mining companies need to understand how digital technologies, including autonomous vehicles, drones, 3D printing, wearable technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT) will influence the future and the way they do business.

2. Overcome innovation barriers

Innovations with high start-up costs that may impact cash flow or the licence to operate are often dismissed. Mining companies are disinclined to collaborate with one another because of concerns about maintaining a competitive advantage and protecting intellectual property.

3. Consider the future of work

The industry needs to consider how to create new employment opportunities, and to reskill and retrain employees in the latest technology and tools.

4. Promote the image of mining

Mining companies must take proactive steps to address, and change, the industry’s image.

5. Transform stakeholder relationships

The mining industry must adopt new approaches to the communities in which they operate to meet increasing demands for local employment opportunities, improved infrastructure and greater environmental protection.

6. Manage water usage

Innovative methods need to be found to reduce, reuse and recycle water in water-scarce regions.

7. Change shareholder expectations

As shareholder expectations grow, mining companies need to re-establish their credibility in the investor community.

8. Reserve replacement woes

Mining companies are struggling to free up the exploration and development budgets required to exploit new resources. At the same time, they remain hesitant to engage in acquisitions to feed the exploration pipeline.

9. Realign mining boards

Mining boards need to embrace the full power of digitisation and innovation to help drive change in the industry.

10. Be future-focused

Miners need to track fluctuating consumer demands, global demographic and economic shifts, the effects of environmental change, and the emergence and adoption of new technologies.

However, despite low investor confidence, the sector’s output value is set to rise at a compound annual rate of 1.5% over the next four years.

ENERGY SECTOR SECTOR

L I G H T AT T H E END OF THE TUNNEL BY ELSKE JOUBERT South Africa’s energy demand is decreasing year-on-year. Demand is 30% below what 2010 estimates had projected, indicating that a big nuclear build will likely be unnecessar y. Now it seems that Eskom will provide less energy as private suppliers dominate the renewable sphere.

STATE OF THE NATION ADDRESS 2019 In his 2019 address, President Ramaphosa clarified two major issues in the South African energy sector: the commitment to investing in the growth of clean energy and the restructuring of Eskom. To prevent the ailing state-owned enterprise from causing irreparable damage to the economy, three separate entities will be established under the umbrella of Eskom Holdings. The division between generation, transmission and distribution, according to President Ramaphosa, is an important step towards procuring “smarter, cleaner and more affordable energy” for South Africa.

THE NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN By 2030, South Africa will have an energy sector that promotes economic growth and development, as envisaged by the National Development Plan (NDP). The NDP also envisages that South Africa will have sufficient supplies of electricity and liquid fuels to ensure that economic activity is not disrupted. In addition to this, approximately 95% of South Africans will have access to electricity. The plan also regards renewable energy sources like wind, solar and hydro-electricity as viable alternatives to coal, with the capability of supplying at least 20 000 MW of the 29 000 MW of electricity needed by 2030.

MANUFACTURING SECTOR

MANUFACTURING A SOLUTION BY ELSKE JOUBERT Historically, local production, manufacturing and beneficiation has languished in South Africa, with growth near zero and the sector struggling to gain traction. With the increase in local consumption, more products are being imported, exposing the country to exchange rate movements and increasing South Africa’s dependence on other countries. The volume of goods produced in South Africa has been near the no-growth mark for the last couple of years.The yearon-year growth in the value of goods produced has declined and growth has been minimal over the last 20 years.

MARKET OVERVIEW In April 2018, manufacturing production rose by 1.1% yearon-year, preceded by an upwardly revised 1.6% decline in May. Output rebounded for rubber and plastic, chemical

products, petroleum (4.0% vs -6.0%); metal and machinery, and basic iron and steel (0.3% vs -2.4%); and glass and non-metallic minerals (3.3% vs -6.9%).

The drop in output for wood, paper, publishing and printing was less (-5.1% vs -7.1%) while clothing and footwear fared better than expected (-1.7% vs -9.9%).

Food and beverage production fell (2.6% vs 6.0%), as

well as motor vehicles and parts (0.9% vs 4.8%), while

production for communication apparatus and professional equipment took a nosedive (-19.9% vs -12.6).

Manufacturing output declined by 0.6% on a monthly basis. The slow-to-no growth of the manufacturing industry can be attributed to manufacturers struggling to sell goods at higher margins, resulting in the South African economy growing moderately. GDP figures showed a quarter-onquarter decline of 6.4%.

M A N U FAC T U R I N G S E C T O R OV E R V I E W

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THE DECLINE IN MANUFACTURING IN RECENT YEARS?

Lack of foreign direct investment

and local company investments in South

Africa. Companies are not investing in

new plants and factories in South

Africa. There are various reasons for

this, which include:

• Restrictive laws and union sway, which

makes SA a difficult employing market

• Power supply constraints in recent

years as well as the cost of electricity

• Political instability, including the latest

issues regarding expropriation of land

Increased open economy

South Africa is trading more with the rest

of the world and therefore importing

more fully manufactured goods.

Lack of skills and know-how

Partly due to the ‘brain drain’ where

skilled people have left South Africa

for greener pastures, and lack of

investment in development

without compensation

The 2018 summary below shows the main sub-sectors of South Africa’s manufacturing industry, the number of employees in these sub-sectors and their contribution to the total number of employees in the manufacturing industry. Basic metals, fabricated metal products, machinery and equipment: 260 917 (22.13%) Food, beverages and tobacco: 236 515 (20.06%) Coke, refined petroleum products and nuclear fuel: 163 720 (13.89%) Wood and products of wood: 133 170 (11.29%) Transport equipment: 115 888 (9.83%)

A ‘NEW DAWN’ FOR MANUFACTURING

In his 2019 State of the Nation Address, President Ramaphosa said the government will address the decline of the country’s manufacturing capacity, which has affected jobs and exports. “We will seek to re-industrialise on a scale and pace that draws millions of job seekers into the economy.” The government will forge ahead with the localisation programme to further stimulate manufacturing. “Products like textile, clothing, furniture, rail rolling stock and water meters will be designated for local procurement.” Ramaphosa said the process of industrialisation must be underpinned by transformation. “Through measures like preferential procurement and the Black Industrialists Programme, we are developing a new generation of black and women producers that are able to build enterprises of significant scale and capability.” Sources www.southafricanmi.com www.tradingeconomics.com www.engineeringnews.co.za

DIGITAL DISRUPTORS

New digital players are increasingly shaping South Africa’s banking sector, driving innovation and challenging the status quo.

$ $ $

New entrants to the local market: • Discovery Bank • African Bank • TymeBank • Bank Zero PwC named three trends developing in the market and impacting the local banking sector:

The emergence of digital solutions with lower-cost models launched by adjacent financial services players.

The emergence of sector- and industry-specific banks, closely integrated with broader supply chains, launched by non-financial services players.

Ongoing transformation of the four universal banks to address changing customer, regulatory and technology needs.

PWC LOOKED AT THE IMPACT OF DIGITAL BANKS IN THE LOCAL BANKING SECTOR AND IDENTIFIED FOUR IMPORTANT FACTORS THEY WILL NEED TO SUCCEED: BE CLEAR ON CUSTOMER SEGMENTATION AND DIFFERENTIATION

BE AGILE: QUICKLY LAUNCH MINIMUM VIABLE PRODUCTS (MVP S ), TEST AND ADAPT

Digital entrants will need to develop effective customer segmentation frameworks. With an effective customer segmentation approach in place, digital entrants can focus on what differentiates their services from existing legacy players.

Entrants must be agile in order to achieve rapid innovation cycles and focus on understanding the MVP needed to test customer adoption of new products and solutions.

CAPTURE CUSTOMER DATA INSIGHTS FROM THE OUTSET TO ENABLE BROADER PLATFORM PLAY

CREATIVELY BUILD HYPE AROUND PRODUCT WHILE MINIMISING ABOVETHE-LINE MARKETING SPEND

Using the knowledge collected by processing customers’ banking transactions to develop customer insights is often the goal of leading digital banks. These banks then use the insights garnered to market an array of other products and services.

New entrants to the banking sector need to focus on building a community of digital-savvy early adopters who are looking for new and differentiating features. This community will expand by word of mouth as new products and features are added.

ACCOUNTABILITY EXTENDS BEYOND DELIVERING SHORT-TERM EARNINGS Generating positive investment returns is our fundamental objective, but that does not absolve us from our shared responsibilities. We all need to recognise the connectivity between the economic, social and biophysical systems that guide our world and which will ultimately determine our collective future. We need business leaders who consider ESG factors in everything they do. Indeed, evidence points to the fact that businesses that intentionally integrate ESG issues typically reap the benefits of stronger growth prospects, enhanced operating efficiencies, stronger social licence to operate, enhanced staff retention, lower cost of capital, better innovation, and ultimately, stronger and longer competitive advantage. A CLEAR, LONG-TERM SUSTAINABLE CORPORATE STRATEGY IS CRITICAL We need leaders who are applying their minds to the long-term strategic challenges of decarbonisation, social inclusivity, job creation, healthcare, education and skills development. It is critical to fully understand and incorporate ESG considerations at a company and industry level. It’s about understanding where we can make the most impact and how we can influence our businesses, communities and environment in the most positive way.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING SECTOR

LESSONS LEARNED BY ELSKE JOUBERT According to Soria Hay, Head of Corporate Finance at Bravura, South Africa’s historic spend on education (6% of GDP) is an appropriate percentage of the country’s budget compared to the rest of the developing countries. On average, Brazil spends approximately 5.8%, China 4% and India 3.3%. Hay goes on to say that few countries spend as much as South Africa and that the issue of quality remains problematic.

F E E - F R E E E D U CAT I O N In the 2018 Budget Speech, a commitment was made towards fee-free education. An implementation plan was proposed that will guarantee access to higher education and training for South Africans who meet the set criteria. The South African government will spend approximately R1-trillion on education in the next three years. The education budget is R89-billion, of which:

Says Hay, “As a result of the fee-free education programme, the number of tertiary students who benefited in 2018 were 340 000 university students and over 420 000 full-time

“But what if we train them, and they leave?” The second responds, “What if we don’t, and they stay?” Deon Oberholzer, CEO of Gestalt Growth Strategies and co-founder of ProudAfrique Human Capital, believes asking how a company can effectively see a return on investment (ROI) through skills development and training is the wrong question. “The real question is: How can a company not see a significant ROI by investing in their own people. Businesses have to do their part to employ people with the potential to be skilled to meet their requirements and then invest in those people.” He adds that companies must take ownership for developing their

Richfield is South Africa’s leader in affordable and technologically enhanced learning. Richfield began in 1990 as PC Training and Business College in Tongaat, KwaZulu-Natal, as a small enterprise. At that time, hardly anyone knew the term “e-learning”, or how big it was to become. Since then, this pioneering company has evolved in tandem with the explosion of digital across almost three decades, to becoming the knowledge powerhouse it is today, with 33 higher education campuses and 40 TVET campuses countrywide. Having recently won several international awards in Oxford (UK), Geneva (Switzerland), Rome (Italy) and London (UK) – ranging from “perfection, quality and ideal performance” to “sustainability, quality achievements and technology integration” – it was therefore not surprising that Richfield took South Africa’s top business award for 2017. The institution is registered with the Department of Higher

by making Richfield a hub for next-generation market-driven skills. Students and staff of Richfield are set to benefit with advanced hands-on skills in a range of Information Technology courses such as Cyber Security, Mobile Application Development, Business Analytics, Cloud, Big Data technologies, Internet of Things and Block Chain, which are crucial to Africa’s social and economic development. This IBM-Richfield partnership programme will provide Richfield students with critical entry-level job skills that are in high demand by employers in South Africa and globally. WIL CONFERENCE South African Society for Cooperative Education (SASCE) hosted the third WIL Africa Conference from 18–20 July 2018 at the Coastlands Hotel and Conference Centre, Umhlanga, Durban. The WIL Africa conference is a premium event on Cooperative Education and Work Integrated Learning (WIL). Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology was a major sponsor of this conference, the theme this year being “WIL: Policy to Implementation”.

PARTNERSHIP WITH STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK On 26 May 2018, RGIT hosted a visiting professor, Professor Krista Rodriguez, from Monroe Community College, State University of New York. Professor Rodriguez provided an in-depth lecture on Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) and provided opportunities for the students of RGIT. She explained that it is now possible for students across various continents to interact with each other and to collaborate on projects that may be required for Work Integrated Learning (WIL) compliance. In her address, Professor Rodriguez said, “I truly am excited about the work and have found that my collaborations have energised me to venture outside my comfort zone and embrace innovative ideas and methodologies. Just being here in South Africa is a new adventure and I so appreciate your support and this opportunity.”

• WIL curriculum issues including assessment and decolonisation of education Richfield sees WIL as an integral part of programme design and development. RGIT reviews its programmes twice annually at the Curriculum Innovation, Design and Development (CIDD) forum. The members of CIDD are subject matter specialists from external public and private institutions as well as industry experts. According to Jay Ramnundlall, CEO of Richfield, “In order to facilitate WIL, the Institution introduced the Work Readiness Programme (WRP) in 2011. The Life Skills for Work Readiness Module is compulsory and a pre-requisite to the Work Integrated Learning module. Richfield has implemented a compulsory tailormade Work Readiness Module designed and created for students to ensure that they are adequately equipped for the workplace and empowered for life in general. The programme covers aspects such as self-management skills, and social and emotional skills.”

Many attendees commended Richfield on the high level of participants and interactions. The conference will help foster a research culture at Richfield and provide a platform for collaboration and building the research profiles of our academics and the institution. INVESTEC Marking its first investment in the African education sector, Investec Asset Management, through its African Private Equity capability, has acquired a controlling stake in Richfield Holdings, one of the leading private sector tertiary education providers in South Africa.

AAA SCHOOL OF ADVERTISING The AAA School of Advertising has become the recipient of extensive financial and academic support from one of South Africa’s prominent higher education institutions. According to a recent announcement, the Association for Communication and Advertising NPC (ACA) has agreed to sell its shareholding in the AAA School of Advertising (AAA) to acclaimed training provider, Richfield. The AAA is a leader in higher education and, with the backing of Richfield, is set to enter the future from a position of strength. Commenting on the transaction, Jay Ramnundlall said, “The AAA is a leader in higher education and with the backing of Richfield, is set to enter the future stronger and bolder than ever before.” With a view toward cementing its position as a leader in higher education, Richfield has focused on partnerships and affiliations across a number of diverse industries. The private provider now aims to expand its presence within the advertising sector. “It is with great anticipation that we add the marketing, advertising and communications sector to our wide-ranging offering and continue delivering highly qualified individuals that employers in the sector require and have become accustomed to receiving from the AAA.”

Investec Asset Management has $143-billion in assets. Its parent company is planning to spin-off and float the asset management unit on the London Stock Exchange with a secondary listing in Johannesburg. Nick Marsh, Investment Principal at Investec Asset Management, commented: “We view the access to affordable vocational and higher education as a critical driver of development for the continent. Jay and his team have built a business with deep academic strength and a brand that is well respected by students, parents and employers. We believe the business is well positioned to capitalise on the growing demand for quality education that delivers the skills needed by employers.” Jay Ramnundlall says: “The need for high-quality affordable tertiary education in South Africa and beyond represents a huge opportunity for Richfield to expand its footprint and course offerings. I believe our partnership with Investec Asset Management will enable us to further expand to provide many more students with the opportunity for a quality tertiary education.”

ACADEMIC RESEARCH CONFERENCE Richfield Holdings hosted a successful academic research conference on 12 and 13 September 2018. The two-day conference brought together experts in academia and industry for a critical examination of the theme “Rising to the IT Challenge; setting new norms for transformational change in education, business and leadership”. The conference comprised 15 plenary sessions, six panel discussions and eight parallel sessions. A total of 94 people attended, made up of 40 internal and 54 external delegates. There were six international delegates: Mr Tola Adesina from Coventry University (UK); Michael Okoche (Uganda); Dr Sampan Silapanad

ADAPTING TO CHANGE The knowledge economy is the use of knowledge to generate tangible and intangible values. It is based on creating, evaluating and trading knowledge. In a knowledge economy, labour costs become progressively less important and traditional economic concepts such as scarcity of resources and economies of scale cease to apply. Such an economy rests on pillars such as innovation, economic and institutional infrastructure, information infrastructure, and education. Private education is well placed to contribute to the knowledge economy that in turn will contribute to economic growth and social development.

• Building and sustaining competencies for future labour market needs.” It noted further that such a framework needed to address transitions between stages of learning. “In many countries, higher secondary and tertiary education rates have not resulted in higher employment in work or higher productivity for a substantial portion of young people, because they may lack competencies relevant to labour market needs.” Measures to address these and other transitions should therefore be part of the national skills development agenda.

The multitude of developmental state challenges confronting South Africa and the implications of the PSET system calls for a critical relook at the system currently in place. We must ensure an inclusive plan is developed to meet the objectives of the NDP 2030 and a broader developmental agenda from an education and training perspective.

Our intent is simple: to remain a market leader through developing our strengths and achievements without compromising the principles on which our business has been built. Omni is a registered and accredited training provider and assessment centre. Our primary focus is to provide our customers with innovative, relevant and industry-related training and development solutions. Our regulatory and governing bodies are the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), Umalusi, the Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) landscape and the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO), an indicator of the compliance and quality parameters within which we operate.

We engage in a partner relationship with our customers, which enables the co-creation of solutions that will best address their human capital needs. By establishing partnerships, we provide access to skills development initiatives in areas that are historically prone to poor socio-economic conditions and high unemployment rates. As a partner, we consider ourselves an extension of our customers and, as a result, co-own their development objectives. A highlight for Omni was being identified as the training partner to implement a retail readiness programme for one of South Africa’s leading retailers. Since 2016, the programme has allowed 16 619 learners the opportunity to develop the skills required to run a

TRAVEL AND TOURISM SECTOR

GOING PLACES BY ELSKE JOUBERT For the seventh consecutive year, the global travel and tourism sector has outperformed the global economy. In 2017, it was the fastest-growing broad economic sector, showing stronger growth than all other sectors, including manufacturing (4.2%), retail and wholesale (3.4%), agriculture, forestry and fisheries (2.6%), and financial services (2.5%). CEO of South African Tourism, Sisa Ntshona, says the local travel and tourism sector remains vital for the country’s economy.

T H E I M P O R TA N C E O F T R AV E L A N D TO U R I S M TO T H E S O U T H A F R I CA N E C O N O M Y Gloria Guevara, President and CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), reiterated the importance of travel and tourism in job creation, economic growth and the

The competition was judged in two parts. First, a panel of judges comprising motoring media, consumer journalists and influencers made their selection. Then the South African motoring public had its say – which is the raison d’etre for the name of the awards. The award for ‘Adventure SUV’ was presented by former Springbok Victor Matfield; the Toyota Fortuner 2.8 GD-6 4x4 AT proudly rolled onto the stage to claim the title. This is the second year the Fortuner has won this category, showing once again South Africa’s love for the super-versatile seven-seater SUV.

The Fortuner’s combination of people- and goods-carrying capability, standard features and go-anywhere ability, underpinned by Toyota’s legendary quality, durability and reliability (QDR) have made the Fortuner a mainstay in the hearts of Mzansi’s people. The awards ceremony concluded with the Brand of the Year award, the most prestigious of the categories. The entire room was in suspense as Ghana Msibi, Wesbank Executive Head: Sales and Marketing, delivered the preamble explaining the criteria and metrics. It was a prestigious moment as the Toyota logo appeared on the big screen and two of the top-selling Toyota models (the Hilux and Fortuner) simultaneously drove onto the stage. The award was accepted by Toyota’s public relations team.

RAIL

The last 20 years have seen a number of factors leading to modal imbalance in South Africa’s surface transport flows, with the rail system being underutilised and road infrastructure being overutilised. Owing to this, the country is seeing less competitive costs of logistics. Rail transport is also a more eco-friendly mode of transportation than road, and greater use of rail could see a reduction in air pollution, road damage and road congestion.

M A I N D R I V E R S O F G R O W T H I N A F R I CA The graph below shows the results of a logistics industry survey regarding the main drivers of growth in the emergence of Africa’s logistics market from 2016–2018. According to 31.9% of respondents, the growing middle class and consumer spending are two of the main reasons for the growth of Africa’s logistics market in 2018, up from 25.6% in 2017.

MAKING A LIVING OUT OF

PASSION South African singer and songwriter Jimmy Nevis tells us about his biggest struggles and achievements, and shares advice for aspiring artists.

F

rom a young age, Jimmy Nevis knew that he would be involved in the music industry. “Making a living out of music was always my dream. But when I was younger, I wasn’t as self-assured

as I am today,” says the artist. “I’m so grateful I was able to build the confidence to pursue music in my own right as a performer, songwriter and producer, and also to grow in those roles. “I’m so fortunate to be able to make a living out of my passion. I’ve been able to grow, travel and experience so many different cultures. I’ve been able to realise the first few levels of my dreams – and there’s still so much more I want to do,” he adds when talking about his meteoric rise to fame. While it might be his first love, music is not Nevis’ only passion. His fashion brand, York Yard, celebrates the heritage and future of South Africa by collaborating with young South African artists.

lease tell us about your professional journey so far. I knew from a very young age what I wanted to do

and set out on this path. For the past 10 years, I’ve worked at almost all the Western Cape commercial radio stations, hosted a travel segment under my own brand called Where Josie Goes on SABC3, did freelance lifestyle for most of our national titles and have just returned from one of my greatest challenges yet, which was being a contestant on Survivor South Africa: Philippines. In this industry, I believe the more you can do and the more hats you wear, the easier it is to create the ideal scenario for yourself. You also founded a membership programme, Real Life Ready. Please tell us more about it. This is my most exciting project yet. It involves working with school-going kids in an external programme to help get everyone ‘real life ready’. The programme aims to better guide students as to the life they want to achieve after school and post-university by equipping them with skills

It also serves as a way to personally connect them to the world by creating their very own network of professionals, they can ask ‘real-world’ questions. As a woman in business, what have been some of your biggest challenges and successes? I think every businessperson, male or female, has their challenges. I believe one of our greatest strengths as women is to use our emotional intelligence and softer side to connect with people. It is awe-inspiring for me to see such a strong wave of women in business in South Africa, at all levels, who are embracing their femininity in business and not trying to compete one-on-one with their male counterparts, but by doing it their way and trailblazing as they go.

ou’re described as a digital entrepreneur. Where did your passion for digital originate? After studying law, the realisation that those who

truly need the law have a limited knowledge of and access to it discouraged me from going in to the practice. An opportunity to audition for Afternoon Express presented itself; I took it and the rest, as they say, is history. Then one day I was reflecting on my future and it hit me: the future of broadcasting is digital.

It was time to invest in the digital elements of broadcast. There were no companies supporting the local YouTube market and I thought it was about time, so I started the process of setting up Special Effects Media South Africa. What exactly does Special Effects Media do? We are what’s traditionally known as a multi-channel network (MCN), which means that we aggregate content by signing multiple YouTube channels onto one premium network to manage content creators. We connect them with local brands who want to advertise their content to reach specific demographics. We also help brands develop digital video strategies and implement them on their platforms. You’re also active in the influencer marketing space. Can you tell us more about the importance of this nascent marketing tool? In the digital age, with the millions of hours of content on the internet, brands are scrambling to capture the attention of their target market. Consumers aren’t really immediately trusting of

brands as they know there is always a sale involved. However, content creators have come to the rescue as they have managed to build a community who know and trust them. What’s put the cherry on the top is that these influencers are their own content production hubs – conceptualising, shooting, editing and distributing content. This is much more attractive to brands than trying to do it alone. In your opinion, how important is the honing of entrepreneurs to the South African economy? It’s not necessary – it’s vital! Entrepreneurs are creative problemsolvers and they find ways to support industries. Don’t get me wrong, it is incredibly tough and the current legislation and landscape make it hard to be an entrepreneur in South Africa. There are a million hoops to jump through and market education to focus on, all the while trying to generate revenue to pay bills. If we do not nurture, mentor and support entrepreneurs at all levels, or at least teach every employee that they are entrepreneurs in their roles, our economy will fall flat – fast. Any advice for aspiring entrepreneurs? It’s incredibly challenging personally, financially and emotionally. Be prepared for lots of failure and chaos. But whatever you do, don’t give up. It is only through perseverance that the best entrepreneurs have built their businesses. Above all else, what will keep your ship sailing in the right direction is to set a very clear guideline for yourself on why you are taking on this project. It can’t simply be “to make money”. You need a ‘why’ that transcends the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ – that makes you more passionate than most things in your life. If that ‘why’ is strong, you will find success.

euben Riffel is one of South Africa’s most well-known chefs. As part of a big family, Reuben grew up around the kitchen table where he received first-hand knowledge of the power of food to

bring people together. His grandfather grew his own fruits and vegetables on a piece of land in Franschhoek, and his grandmother, mother and aunties would spend time in the kitchen, preparing delicious, mouthwatering meals. Before joining the waiting staff at Chamonix, Reuben had a brief stint in the building trade. But it didn’t take long for him to make his way to the kitchen, where he learned the basics of food preparation from Chef Christophe Dehosse. After his informal schooling, Reuben moved on to start his own culinary journey.

A LEADER IN GLOBAL STEEL MARKETS With annual achievable production capacity of approximately 113 million tonnes of crude steel and 199 000 employees across 60 countries, ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel and mining company.

ArcelorMittal has grown through the acquisition of numerous steelmaking and other assets, which constitute their major operating subsidiaries. “The group is managed according to region, with a product specialisation within those regions. Every region is headed by a member of ArcelorMittal’s executive officers.” The company, with its significant global presence, can use its size and worldwide reach to optimise services across the business, while also enjoying the benefits of using economies of scale. “At the same time, we have a commitment to ensuring different parts of the business are empowered to make decisions, ensuring accountability at the right level within the company.” Their shared services include purchasing, energy, shipping, IT, legal, real estate and by-products

sales. The shared services teams work to make sure best practice is followed throughout the group, while also sharing local good practices with the entire organisation. We believe that a lean and effective organisation is essential to making sure the company is managed as efficiently as possible.

Their core philosophy is to produce safe, sustainable steel. “In so doing, our top priority is safety and our goal is to be the world’s

safest steel and mining company. As a company, we are committed to our promise of ‘transforming tomorrow’. Guiding us in this are our values of sustainability, quality and leadership,” says Kobus Verster, CEO of ArcelorMittal. The company has a global portfolio of 14 operating units with mines in operation and development, making it one of the largest iron ore producers in the world. In 2016, their mines and strategic contracts produced 62.9 million tonnes of iron ore and met 55% of the company’s iron ore requirements. “We also produced 6.9 million tonnes of coking coal and PCI, meeting 15% of the company’s PCI and coal requirements. We currently have iron ore mining activities in Brazil, Bosnia, Canada, Kazakhstan, Liberia, Mexico, Ukraine and the United States.” ArcelorMittal is at the forefront of steel production research and development, having 12 major research centres worldwide. “Investing in the future provides the technical foundation for the sustainability and commercial success of the company. We use our researchers’ expertise in steel to develop cleaner processes and greener products, including ultra-high-strength steels and Ultra-Low CO2 Steelmaking, to make steel production more sustainable and help reduce both our own environmental impact and that of our customers.”
