Cape Town, Western Province, South Africa, 2007/03/06 - PIC Solutions, in partnership with Joe DiVanna, is hosting an exclusive business breakfast for South African credit industry leaders in March.
To be held in Cape Town and Johannesburg, these breakfasts will provide insight into Joe DiVanna’s latest book Redefining Financial Services, which highlights the future of financial services. Joe’s insight on twenty-first century business centres on the premise that in order to be competitive, all businesses must have a strong value proposition that is memorable, credible, demonstrable and actionable. Described by The Economist as a "polymath", and "brilliant and fresh" by his clients, Joe DiVanna is an independent author, consultant and global public speaker. His sometimes unconventional approach to solving global business challenges prompts clients to stop and think about what they do and how they do it.
In recognition of the important role these business leaders play, they will each receive a signed book on Redefining Financial Services: the New Renaissance in Value Propositions by Joe DiVanna.
In addition, PIC Solutions and Maris Strategies Limited are making a donation towards the community initiatives of Masiphumelele Corporation. As a non-profit organisation, Masiphumelele Corporation focuses on developing and supporting community entrepreneurs-and future leaders- who can create sustainable transformation for the Masiphumelele community, a township near Cape Town, South Africa.
Joe DiVanna, Managing Director of Maris Strategies, states, “The South Africa market is a fascinating and dynamic environment which creates numerous opportunities for businesses. These breakfasts provide insight into the future of retail banking and the challenges of banking as we know it today. I look forward to sharing my experiences with PIC Solutions’ guests and providing them with a fresh perspective on strategies and the competitive challenges impacting the financial services industry. The contribution that PIC Solutions is making to Masiphumelele Corporation will further assist them in their bid to build a better future for their community.”
Stephen Leonard, Managing Director of PIC Solutions, adds, “As a thought leader, Joe DiVanna inspires business leaders and we are proud to be involved in this initiative with him. Joe’s presentation will expose our clients to the global views of successful retail banking and how to think strategically about positioning their businesses going forward. We are pleased to be a part of Joe’s charity initiative and will be making a contribution on behalf of each of our guests towards the Masiphumelele Corporation.”
