It sounds simple: Make a film in 48 hours - 2 days - one weekend. Here’s the catch - you don’t know the genre of your film until right before the clock starts ticking!

ECD sector collapsing due to government inadequacy

The impacts of Covid-19 and the lockdown on the Early Childhood Development (ECD) sector have been more widespread than the schooling system. A survey conducted by Ilifa Labantwana and others found that over 100,000 jobs in the ECD sector may already have been lost and 1.8 million children are at risk of not being able to access early childhood learning services if centres are unable to reopen. Without childcare being available, the burden of care falls primarily on women – impeding their ability to take up income-earning opportunities.

Labat Africa & Verityhurst Academy

Pfizer Inc. Chief Executive Officer Albert Bourla pocketed about $5.6 million after selling stock, the latest executive to reap the rewards of insider share transactions after recent COVID 19 vaccine breakthroughs.

Bourla is one of many pharmaceutical executives who made deals under prearranged 10b5-1 trading plans, which let people schedule sales in advance at certain times or prices, absolving themselves from accusations of insider trading. Public-company executives typically receive a considerable share of their compensation in the form of stock, and the vast majority periodically sell part of their holdings.

Getting Corporates to mentor SMME

As South Africa looks to recover from the devastating effects COVID-19 has had on the economy, the government’s economic turnaround plan involves using transformation to pivot the country’s fiscal growth.

The question of Ethics in Leadership, Sustainability Reporting and the 25th Anniversary rebrand

Over the years, South Africa has been rocked by a slew of accounting scandals and company failures, with prominent firms implicated in lapses of ethical conduct and have displayed suspect behaviour when carrying out their auditing duties in companies while some are reported to have misrepresented the financial data.

These lapses have caused the profession to suffer a crisis of major loss of public trust and confidence. Professionals have to advance a culture of accountability, correct the culture of selective consequence management and full disclosure. Corporations and governments have to integrate ethics into normal risk management and monitoring processes.
