I want to sincerely thank the CBE for this “Congress of Business & Economics – Ahmed Kathrada Excellence in Leadership” award and for the recognition bestowed on me. The CBE is one of the most significant associations, with its roots firmly in our past. I would like to offer my services to work with you in whatever way, because in it is an astonishingly revolutionary idea of working together in our quest for economic progress, not competing against each other, but working to lift each other up. Not cheating the system for tenders, but using collective resources. ——————————————————————————— I am truly honoured, thank you very much. ✊🏼🏆
