Another turbulent, interesting and sometimes depressing year is almost over.
Just as we thought “Little else can happen, apart from waiting for the all important outcome of the ANC conference” Steinhoff hit us!
All these factors impact on business confidence. However, our industry and SA as a whole have once again shown great resilience, which bodes well for the future.
It is in times like this when being part of an association like shop-sa is critical and as important as ever.
To communicate effectively, the former My Office magazine, successfully moved from print to digital, opening up new possibilities and keeping our members informed about trends as well as issues relating to our industry.
The popular series of Executive Breakfast sessions, with excellent and relevant speakers, will continue in 2018.
Our hope and wish is that industry players recognise the value of a strong association and renew their support – we all know that “strength is in numbers”!
On this note, we wish all members and readers of the My Office newsletter a peaceful festive season – and a much better 2018!
