Last week Thursday our Western Cape office achieved a special milestone as we hosted our first in-person function.
The event took place in the Paul Roos suite in Stellenbosch and theme for the evening was ‘Finding opportunities in Chaos’ .
It was a very motivational and Informative evening and we would like to especially thank our two guest speakers:
- Erik Kruger is an international Keynote speaker and author who specialise in team coaching. He holds his master’s degree in Executive coaching and shared with us how we can re-calibrate our thinking to become a person of value by having a growth mindset. Whether it be in business, your personal finances, sports, or life in general, your thinking will influence your habits and your habits will ultimately direct where you head and end up in life.
- Albe Geldenhuys is the founder and CEO of the international supplement brand USN. He shared his personal story with us, how he started in his small apartment in Pretoria and had no knowledge of business, to growing a multimillion-dollar company which exports to more than 55 countries across the globe. Albe didn’t excel in school, he had no real business plan, but through determination, hard work and by listening to what the market really wanted he achieved incredible success.
Our headline sponsor for the evening was M&G Investments, previously called Prudential. Yolandi, thank you very much for your insightful ideas on how we can “Future Proof our investments” and how we should focus on our behaviour and the factors that are within our control. Slides of this presentation are available – please speak to your financial advisor to share them with you and talk you through it.
We started and ended the evening with some live music and wine tastings. Thank you to our participating wine farms: Hartenberg, Kleine Zalze and Thelema for sharing your knowledge and incredible wines. As South Africans we are spoilt for choice when it comes to great quality wines at an affordable prize.
Lastly, we would like to thank every person who attended our event. Our main aim at Bovest is to add value to the lives of our clients and with everything we do, our client will be our top priority.
We look forward to welcome you again next year as we will always make: Your Wealth, Our Priority
