Synopsis:
PRESENTATIONS by Ian Macdonald SOUTH AFRICA - The Good News This talk includes an interactive questionnaire on developments in South Africa post ’94 (very few delegates do better than 6/10!). Ian covers the major economic, political and social developments since 1994. He focuses in particular on what the next five years will look like. He is able to customise the talk around the particular needs of your organisation, i.e. focus on technology/ agriculture/ tourism/ banking etc. He concludes by dealing with the major challenges facing our country; crime, education, unemployment and health. The talk ends by awarding a “prize” to the person who did best in the interactive questionnaire! This talk is best utilized at the beginning of conference as a scene-setter, or at the conclusion of conference to "end on a positive note"! SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO? "Do you do talks at schools on South Africa's good news?'” I was recently asked by an 11th grade school girl. “There are many of us here (she attends an independent co-ed school) who are passionate about this country and its future, but our parents are advising us to seek our careers elsewhere!” A week later we presented to the 11th graders and their parents. The presentation includes a 10 question test on "How well do you know your country?" The learners generally do better than their parents! In broad terms Ian covers our economic, political and social prospects and how we compare internationally. In particular he deals with crime. The presentation is concluded with a debate on “should I stay or should I go”. SOUTH AFRICA – 2010 Ian tells of the progress that South Africa has made in preparing for 2010. SAGN’s recent publication “2010: Africa's Time Has Come” (published November 2007) is the culmination of six months of research contacting some 70 prominent South Africans involved in 2010 preparations, including extensive dealings with the Organising Committee and FIFA. This presentation will inspire confidence in our preparations for this global event, in particular what we're doing in respect of accommodation, transport, security, city upgrade and social legacy. Again, this talk is suitable for both conferences and as an after dinner presentation. EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEERING IN SOUTH AFRICA With the recent publication of “Employee Volunteering in South Africa - A Best Practice Workbook" Ian is well-positioned to talk about the business case of employee volunteering, as well as the “what, why and how” of implementing a successful employee volunteering programme in your business. Ian talks of the extensive research done in compiling this book as well as the many practical examples of what corporates are doing. He provides insight into a range of measurement tools that will enable organisations to successfully manage employee volunteering so that it both delivers to the business as well as the communities that your organisation serves.
