Almost all companies have been affected by the credit crunch, business downturn and market paralysis.
But just because large builders are caught up in slowing sales, product resistance, slumping house prices, valuation wobbles, shareholder loss of confidence, doubts over management skills in choppy markets, narrowing margins, rising construction costs, no significant investment appetite, bank lending freezes, declining asset class, inadequate returns for risk, lack of management skill depth and growing self doubt does not mean all business has ceased.
This is the time for the fleet footed, nimble and agile. Dozens of highly profitable sub markets are emerging and any company not hide bound by yesterday’s thinking has a unique opportunity to grow.
There are solutions and they will be available to anyone who cares to take the time to listen, ask questions and get the answers.
To carry on with yesterday's practices is folly.
There are answers and we have many of them. Take a step to prosperity renewal.
A seminar will be held in Johannesburg on Wednesday 12 May 2010.

If you are planning to attend, please note that the earlier you book, the better value you will achieve.
The attendance price is raised each Friday evening at 5pm.
