Don't be left in the dark Seg 1

In the last few days,in SA we’ve all been left in the dark at one point or another. As consumers we’ve faced the harsh reality of coming home to an ice cold house because of the rainy Joburg weather, potentially a night in the dark,which leads me to worry and panic at the idea of not being able to make something to eat or the idea of our appliances being damaged when the power comes back or worse being robbed! These are fears ration I think but what about the bigger longer lasting effects of these hours with no power. What happens to business,the economy & future business prospects in SA?

Travel & Tourism in Africa Seg 1

Over the last eight years, travel and tourism has grown by 17.3 percent in the top ten fastest-growing global destinations. Africa however, has not enjoyed the same growth rate although the continent offers a wide range of benefits, the sector remains largely an untapped opportunity. This is largely due to challenges facing the sector, including security concerns, lack of infrastructure just to name a few. Today we will be discussing travel and tourism in Africa

The role of formal education in Africa.

The debate around education is that we need to start looking at a more holistic approach instead of relying on the current curriculum because we are sitting with graduates who can't be absorbed by corporate.

Entrepreneurship has presented a different side of the spectrum that says you don't really need a degree, or masters to succeed.

Could a new wave be forming of education that requires us to re-look at ways to beef up our curriculum in order to adequately prepare graduates for the reality of corporate?

On a lighter note, Kwanele.. Haven't you wondered why we had to learn Pythagoras in relation to life as you know it now? I'm reminded of the painful moments where I would spend nights cramming information for exams, information I didn't understand back then and to a large degree I still don't.

Nonetheless, there must be a place for them otherwise our education system would not be investing billions into educational programs.

That said, tonight we ask: what's the role of formal education in Africa and should we be looking at other alternatives that will get our graduates corporate ready to compete differently in the global economy?

We are joined in studio by Prof Alvin Louw, President of Monash South Africa.

The effects of depression in the workplace

According to The South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG), one in four South African employees are affected by depression. Given the shocking statistics, that means there's a good chance the person who sits next to you has had to cope with depression at some point in their lives. It is therefore not surprisung that non-disclosure of depression as a reason for sick leave in the workplace often arises due to the stigma that comes with the condition. Employees also fear losing their jobs.

Advancing development in soccer

Soccer is more than just a game and a multi-billion dollar industry. With an estimated 3.5 billion fans worldwide, there is arguably no social phenomenon with the same power to inspire, unite and connect as soccer. As a global language, soccer can provide an incredibly effective and cost-efficient way to engage young people in environments with scarce resources. Neil Tovey joins us to unpack soccer development in South Africa.

For decades, it has been in the forefront as the sport for development in rural communities. More businesses are investing in the sport and are using the convening power of soccer to engage youth. Such is true of Hamisi Mohamed from Kenya who recently won the Arsenal Football Club and WorldRemit Future Stars” youth coaching programme.

Chronic Youth Unemployment Cripples SA's Economy With No Sign of Remedy

Youth unemployment in Africa continues to rise with South Africa being one of the countries with the most youth unemployed. What can South Africa do to address unemployment and better yet, how do we rephrase this question to focus on moving the country forward?
According to the report of the first quarter survey by the Statistical agency of South Africa, working for population up by 0,4% in the 1st of 2018 compared to the 4th quarter of 2017. The rise in both employment (up by 206 000) and unemployment (up by 100 000) over the quarter led to the rise in the labour force participation rate now standing at 59,3%. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 26.7% with the youth being the most vulnerable. There was, however, claims that this is not a uniquely South African problem, but the current economic condition disagrees.
