The world is changing fast and to keep up you need local knowledge with global context.
I have a theory about business in a rapidly expanding sector like online publishing being more like climbing stairs than navigating a steady curve. After periods of relative calm, we seem to be hit with surges of near perpendicular growth. It’s only once you’re able to boost resources that normality returns.
We’re in the process of, hopefully, nearing the end of one of those hectic rushes having brought two experienced hands onto the Biznews deck. In February, when writing about Clive Eksteen, a longtime colleague during our Moneyweb days, I secretly hoped that one day we’d work together again. Through a series of fortuitous (for Biznews) events, Clive joined our core management team at the beginning of July. We’re blessed.
Similarly, we’ve welcomed ace broadcaster and my long-time friend Tim Modise back into our fold. We played together in the very early days of Biznews when Tim put together a section on Transformation. That didn’t work out as we’d hoped, but he’s now back and, inter alia, will be taking over responsibility for our flagship Noontime Thursday webinar. Doubly blessed. Sign up here: https://attendee.
