Note Judge Zondo's verdict in the Rademan case. "Basically as I have it Mun By-Laws exempting them from reimbursement to rate payers of non services delivery and availability is now null and void. Case in point the flat rate for electricity should be reimbursed for periods of loadshedding, etc. If there is another view let me know.

Good afternoon.

Business Café’s e mail address has changed to [email protected] Kindly save these address for future email communication.

In reading The State of the Nation: Coalitions Options for South Africa by Mike Sham I thought to share a few snippets which are very apt.

As with Business Café conversations, where we aim to bring new thoughts and challenges to the status quo to a representative community, so was this State of the Nation engagement on the 10th of July 2023 with 250 businessmen and businesswomen of which most will be attending the upcoming coalition talks scheduled for mid-August.

Interesting observations by Mike Shame are:
1. “In my interaction with politicians through the State of the Nation, I have come to realise just how easy it is for politicians to get removed from the issues that matter to voters…”
2. “Our politicians need to face real people not supporters in a stadium. They need to get instant feedback from the people who pay taxes…”
3. “The politicians, on the other hand, were mediocre at best…”
4. “I think that this group of leaders understands the gravity of the problem and will put their pettiness behind them…”
5. “The real question is whether this will resonate with more than 50% of the voting public…”

For context I encourage you to click on the following link. online.qhost.co.za/?sid=6353&sendsid=33523&contactid=1874526

I will be sharing our planned Conversation agenda for the remainder of the year with you during the next new 2 weeks.

Keep well.

Who we are

Alfa & Omega NBS was established in 2005 emanating from research we did in the Financial Services and Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) sectors. The research was focused on developing, creating and encouraging new entrepreneurs to enter and contribute to a sustainable SME sector. The aim of SME business development is to facilitate sustainable small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and subsequently to generate employment opportunities. SME development consists of identification and securing of business ideas and funding opportunities; improving entrepreneurial, organization and market capacity as well as to provide ongoing business support.

We found that the same principals which apply to SME’s are relevant across all organisations, from the smallest to the largest corporations. Our focus in Alfa & Omega NBS moved to the most critical enabling factor in an organization that being its people. Hence our slogan

“it’s about people”.
