How do you duplicate one event into multiple events, therefore getting maximum audience reach?
Extending an event to more people does not necessarily require having more people in the room. But by duplicating a single event into multiple simultaneous events, you’re able to still get the big impact you want, without having too many people in one room. How does this work? By replicating the same event set up at multiple venues country-wide. This ensures that people in all venues get the same experience and access to the content and messaging.
We are about to have a discussion on the Innovative ways of using digital media to extend the reach and impact for events and share how we have helped our clients fulfil their communication engagement objectives for their events.


The Department of Home Affairs has published its first directive for 2019, aiming to clamp down on foreigners working in the country on ‘business trip’ visas.
The issuing of this directive indicates a common misuse of the visa category by employers where they are making use of the relaxed nature of visa requirements of this category to bring resources into South Africa and then continuously extending or applying for new visas when they should, in fact, be pursuing a long term work visa

According to Fin24, Eskom’s 96-year history is replete with former chief executive officers who rose from within the debt-laden state utility to run the company. There are few obvious choices for the next CEO to come from those same ranks.
Two possible candidates from Eskom’s executive team to replace Phakamani Hadebe have strengths but also weaknesses. Chief Financial Officer Calib Cassim is a chartered accountant who’s worked at Eskom for 17 years, yet he has little technical expertise. Chief Operations Officer Jan Oberholzer, who has held a range of jobs during a quarter century at the utility, may not have the financial experience to steady its shaky finances

Christelle Colman, Insurance Expert at Old Mutual Insure

The recent warning by the office of the Ombudsman for Short-Term Insurance (OSTI) that consumers could find their cellphone insurance claim rejected if they changed their number, has emphasized the fact that ‘not all insurance policies are created equal’ and that short-term policy should be examined before they are accepted, says Old Mutual Insure’s insurance expert.

The warning by Ayanda Mazwi, a senior assistant Ombudsman that simply changing a telephone number (through number porting) could invalidate a claim for the damage, loss or theft of a phone has emphasised that it is more important than ever before to know your rights, says Christelle Colman, Insurance Expert at Old Mutual Insure.

“It is common for people buying new cell phones to be offered insurance as part of a package. Most people faced with a mass of paperwork at the purchase point often accept the offer without checking what they are signing up for. It is only later when a phone is lost or stolen that many are shocked to find that because they have changed their numbers or acquired a new SIM card that their claims are invalid,” Colman says

“The onus in these cases lies on the phone’s owner to notify the insurance company if the phone’s owner obtains a new SIM card or changes a cell’s number. If this is not done, claims can be rejected. Old Mutual Insure, in contrast to many other insurance providers, bases insurance coverage on the EMI and serial numbers that are unique to each phone. It is, therefore, immaterial whether a number has changed or if a new SIM card has been inserted in the phone. As long as the phone identified in the policy is the subject of the claim, the claim will be considered and settled.” Colman continues.
