Special mention needs to be made that 10 students from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University were also present at the networking evening and by all accounts found the experience valuable. This is the first time that these students who are studying Marketing, Business Management, B.Com and Tourism Management, have been exposed to such a gathering of experienced Business people. The students were accompanied by 5 members of the NMMU faculty and it is hoped that this will be the first of many such interactions. We appeal to our members to identify these young people at the networking evenings, engage with them and share your “real” business experiences with them. They are keen to hear what you have to say.
