Managers from developing markets make better global business leaders

"Are you a terrorist or a spy?" I was asked. Intuitively I smiled, maybe I shouldn't have, but I have found a smile can diffuse a situation and honestly I did find the question a little funny. Here I was sitting in a police station somewhere in Africa on the border of two countries, 30 minutes earlier I was arrested for what was deemed suspicious behaviour. Unable to prove who I was or what I was doing, I was whisked away for interrogation.

To acquire or not to acquire in Africa

While the opportunities in Africa are immense, entrance into the continent and its many markets can be a complex, frustrating and risky proposition. Gaining a foothold in a country on your own from scratch, increases the risk of failure considerably.

Africa's first focused trade fair for furniture, décor and design has launched
Africa's first focused trade fair for furniture, décor and design has launched

On 10 July, the doors seamlessly opened to what promises to continue to be the most important decor, furniture and retail event on the African continent. This was the inaugural Inspire Trade Expo, which ran until 12 July 2014 and was the brainchild of expo genius Rina Fortmann, who was not only a director of SARCDA for many years, but who also chaired EXSA (Exhibition Association Of Southern Africa). This show was a properly controlled trade show where every single visitor had to pass a host of stringent criteria in order to be allowed access, due to the focus being on quality trade visitors instead of thousands of consumers.

In-store communication speaks louder than words - Grey
In-store communication speaks louder than words

It's estimated that 70% of purchasing decisions by consumers are made when coming face-to-face with in-store point-of-sale. In my opinion this is probably an optimistic figure many hope to achieve when it comes to evaluating the efficacy of their standard point-of-sale material. You might be ticking a box by having a bulky pull up banner on display next to their product, but does it make the product or the campaign memorable?
