Strategy lessons from my 30km Desert Bush WalkAs my friends witnessed my daily struggle with pain, grieving the loss of someone close to my heart, they felt helpless. The powerful force of the anguish made me feel like I was in a sinkhole; the more I tried to power up, the deeper I sank. In the hope of helping me heal, one of them invited me to participate in the 30km Desert Bush Walk. 28 Aug 2019 Read more

Doing business in Africa - influence of cultureAs an African woman who was born and raised in a rural area, my first real experience of urban life only came after I earned my Bachelor's Degree and started my career. My rural upbringing was my window on the world - I looked through it to see how other people lived, which influenced my view of the world and how people relate to each other in it.
