This month has been a whirlwind for TABJ. When we spoke with more than 20 top African companies this month including Asenjo Energy, Teichmann Plant Hire, and Eurocape, we heard the undertones of excitement surrounding this upcoming year in African business.

The next 12 months will be crucial ones for African countries, as projects ramp up and we see just how much the World Cup’s influx of business development contributes to the continent’s future strengths.

Of course we need to stay on top of current legislative issues affecting African business including the evolving role of BEE initiatives and how social responsibility affects business strategy, which was a topic at a recent seminar TABJ attended in Canada.

We were onsite for the On the Ground Group’s Risk Seminar on October 27th, and the presentations were eye-opening, to say the least. Risk will be a key focus going into 2011, and we plan to delve further into the challenges and barriers to entry for businesses next year.

We would love to help you promote your business. Tell us your story, and we’ll tell the world. Write to me at sarak@georgemedia.ca.

Until next month…
