1. SA should prioritise education right now and give it all the commitment, input, expertise and finances it needs. It includes all education — early childhood development, primary, secondary school and higher education.


  2. #feesmustfall could be a fantastic business opportunity!

    Recently I watched the video of Sir Alex Ferguson’s visit to the London Business School. And it was most disappointing!

    Corporate governance expert Mervyn King often says the role of non-executive directors is not to explain to fellow board members what they know, but to ask questions about what they don’t know.


  5. There is light at the end of the tunnel!

    Perhaps we are closer to the resolution of SA’s state capture nightmare than many believe. But we are in for a rough run in the short term.

  8. All energy options have pros but one has major defects

    I recently set a group of MBA students the task of representing a key sector of energy: solar, wind, nuclear, coal, and gas.
