It is really hard to keep a business going in South Africa at the moment. Political tension, corruption, high fuel and food prices, retrenchments, strikes ... oh the list goes on and on. Beam me up Scotty to a happier place. If only ...
The reality for most of us is that we are here to stay and despite everything negative that is going on, South Africa is a beautiful country with wonderful people who just want to get on with life and bring up their families and enjoy time with friends.
South Africans are resilient, innovative and brave. From big business to small entrepreneurs, we also have the farmers who live by the "boer maak 'n plan" (farmers make a plan) theory, we have millions of people living in informal settlements surviving by setting up a hair salon on the pavement or selling fruit and veggies to passers by those who sell anything and everything at traffic lights.
It is when we are in the deepest hole that we fight hardest. Unless we win the Lotto we have no choice.
Recently The Extraordinary Group (TEG) arranged a week long training series for Mazda who were launching their new BT-50 vehicles. It was a great priviliege to have the 250 people from the Mazda National Sales Teams having fun at Paddle Power.
TEG had organised the event to be based on an Amazing Race theme. Paddle Power was used for 2 activities - a river game and Crossbow.
