Winnie Mandela turned 80 in September. I’m not sure how important that was to my readers, but I am happy to announce that, at the other end of the scale, Simply Communicate turned four in the same month! Simply Communicate first saw the light of day on 1 September 2012, and here we are, an active member of the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business, well known in the KZN Midlands, and facilitating training and developing staff all around the province.

This year also marks my 20 years in Human Resource Management. Thank you to those who have supported, encouraged and challenged me on this journey. And thank you to those who have let me loose among their managers, their staff and their teams.

May the next four be less controversial, but no less fun than Winnie’s 80.
