Spring, or Autumn (if you are some of our more southern readers) is a time of transition often more enjoyable than the scorching summers of Africa or the frigid summers of Britain. Certainly a time of change, for example Britain has implemented a hose pipe ban at the very same time as issuing flood warnings proving once and for all that the government are less in touch with reality than their public relations insist.
As the storm clouds gathered around the waistline of the Littlegate Towers and Donnie Rust went kite flying in the car park we all had
to admit that this month has been one for opportunities.
Concentrating on companies throughout economic and environmental hardships have pushed through and become leaders in their industries and we have examined the secrets to their success and have learnt many important lessons this month.
We caught up with the City Manager of the Cape Town Municipality in South Africa, looked in on the highly skilled, well-trained employees of the Johannesburg Water. We marvelled at companies like Banbros Bus and Coach,Â the Innovation Group andÂ Glassware Mart. We tracked the tactical footsteps of Zambeef throughout Southern and Eastern Africa. Paid close attention to GM Graphix and had a look around SESSA.
Jim Blythe found he wasnâ€™t the only observational cynic in the world and Rob James flexed his wordsmith muscles while Donnie Rust
considered history from a futuristic point of view.
So whether it be spring or autumn wherever you are, remember that if ever you want to know the way to go, look at people whoâ€™re doing it better than you and try to copy them. After all, imitation is the highest form of flattery.
