What it takes to be a great leader


I was reading an article on perspectives on leadership, and I was most impressed with what former United States President, Bill Clinton had to say with regards to the attributes that a great leader should have.

The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) has invited schools to participate in the 2015 SAIIA Sasol Environmental Sustainability Project (ESP). The goal of the ESP is to equip South African youth with knowledge and understanding of the local and international issues connected to environmental sustainability and requires teams of learners to research topics related to global environmental sustainability, provide case examples, and to consider what possible recommendations or solutions they would propose at a local and international level. To register, complete the school registration form on the last page of the pdf document. For more information click here or see youth@saiia.org.za.

The PCB is to publish its very own quarterly glossy business magazine.

Capital will promote the greater Pietermaritzburg and KwaZulu-Natal Midlands area through a focus on enterprise. People, and the myriad ways in which they make money and succeed, are what drive an economy and shape the future. Their stories - often inspiring and frequently surprising - are the stories that Capital will tell.

Capital will speak to both a local audience and to a wider national and international readership. It will achieve this through the focused distribution of a quarterly, A4-sized glossy magazine enhanced by a multimedia edition that drives reader interaction beyond what is possible with print. Complete with video, audio, photo galleries, research polls and clickable adverts, this innovative digital version, along with the print issue, will be distributed far and wide via other chambers of business, government departments, consulates, airports and subscriptions.

Should you wish to be part of this publication please contact: Heidi Jadoo on 033 345 2747 or pcb@pcb.org.za. The booking form is attached and adverts will be accommodated on a first come, first serve basis.

This sneak peek of the interactive, digital magazine is to show you what we are doing with Capital magazine.


The Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business (PCB) was constituted in August 2002 following unity negotiations among three former business organisations – the Pietermaritzburgse Sakekamer, the Midlands Black Business Chamber and the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Commerce and Industries.   In forming a new chamber of commerce and industry, the unifying bodies agreed to forego their independent identities.    Following the unification, the PCB was afforded the recognition of the local and provincial governments as the representative of the business community in Pietermaritzburg.
