Insecure, threatened managers treat subordinates unjustly
Awesome article Refilwe!

May I commend you for publishing this! You ROCK! :)
You have gone BOLDLY where 98% will not!

I am right there with you.

The majority of society suffer from an affliction I refer to head-in-sand-attitudis.

Their attitude: 'Speaking up is futile' combined with 'This it is not my problem'

Then sadly there are the helpless "silenced voices" - those people living in fear because of this abuse of power and the consequences...

I would like to share following lyrics;

All of us just sat back and watched it happen
Thinkin’, “It’s not my responsibility
To solve a problem that isn’t even about me.”

This is our problem

This is just one of them daily scenarios
In which we choose to close our eyes
Instead of doing the right thing
If we make a choice

To be the voice

For those who won’t speak up for themselves
How many lives would be saved, changed, rearranged?

Now it’s our time to pick a side
So don’t keep walking by, not wanting to intervene
‘Cause you just wanna exist and never be seen

So let’s wake up,
Change the world,

Our time is now…

Casper de Vries' heavenly hell
I thoroughly enjoyed his show last Friday evening - terrific experience - I haven't laughed as much as that in ages.

Business lessons to be learned from 1time airline
I do not beleive that the staff and even management knew that the company was going into liquidation as I was in their ofices the day before and assured that everything was improving and even discussed sports proposals for some athletes I am working with. I had a very good meeting with their Customer Services Manager who could not have been more positive. However, I do believe that the Chairman 'Blackie' was fully aware of what was happening and I believe that he should be held personally responsible for refunding the losses.

Where are women voices in talk radio?
So true! There should be an initiative for girls to go to if they're interested in radio - do you know if there's one like that out there?

Concerns over high prices and feeding schemes
it is of importance that the children are continued on being fed in during school holidays, because they are not only young but also falls under vulnarable group.

I totally agree with you. There's a total lack of women in talk radio. Perhaps you should take the initiative to break the barrier on our behalf. I've never worked on radio and I think it's a fascinating platform to reach all communities.

I found your article thought provoking but I am wondering whether the particular talk station's target audience is also not a factor.If the station is not targeted broadly at a certain type of listener I am not sure how views from that section can be encouraged.And i agree that stations shouldnt subscribe to the stereotypes of having dating shows to attract women callers because while it's important, its also condescending considering men wont be drawn by such conversations.

Expanding your brand across Africa
One final from me, You are 100% right Valentino, there has to be room for local nuances. As we are all saying, one size can not fit all, but a big idea should work where ever. But it may need a local adaptation.

Expanding your brand across Africa
Hi Nonye, great write up indeed. Loved it. It is absolutely true that iti is 'the human truth' that connects us as consumers and even as people. While I agree with Tim that our desires and needs often cut across race, religion and beliefs that have global similarity; the issue of 'differentiation' must not be ignored in the push for universal homogeneity. What has kept Africa in the shadows for so long is our belief that a European or American branding and creative concept must fit our perspectives. It never does. So, quite clearly we must consider local factors in every country system we hope to impact in. In investing in Africa we must identify the 'differentiating' factor that makes Angola, for instance, different from Cote de Voire and use that as the basis for creating unique branding concepts that can impact favourably in our choice target market. Of course ROI is evidently the final arbiter for assessing how effective our branding and marketing concepts did, but success in any market, particularly in Africa, comes with some degree of 'differentiation'-appreciation in our research process.

Absolutely! As digital clutter grows and grows like Topsy, print will become even more valuable and effective. But measurable or at least demonstrable ROI is important.
