Leadership

Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people. In the transformational leadership model, leaders set direction and help themselves and others to do the right thing to move forward. To do this they create an inspiring vision, and then motivate and inspire others to reach that vision.

It is better to lead from behind and put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.

Nelson Mandela.

Our services

Here are a few benefits to consider.

EXPOSURE AND VISIBILITY FOR YOUR BUSINESS

It is important for the chamber that the business community know about your business and what services and products you provide. The chamber aims to provide an index to establish what visitors to the site access to the products/services those members of the chamber offers. The services and products are also linked to "Google" code words that referred traffic to our site will increase.

Affiliation with the AHI

Many people ask what it means to affiliate with the AHI. The answer is simple. If no one takes care of us on government level, who will? The work of the AHI nationally is to protect business needs and they are well known for it. The AHI has a Employer Organization which are available for the members. Now you can, via a membership with the business forum, belong to a workers organization.

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

The chamber is there to put you in touch with fellow business people, to promote you business and give your business exposure through monthly networking events. These networking events go along with a lunch and a speaker for the day. We will insure that each speaker brings value to you business every time.

MONTHLY NEWSLETTERS

We have monthly newsletters that will keep you informed of any events taking place in the chamber. You will also receive newsletters from the AHI. We will be sending the business forums newsletters by email to all members. All platinum members will automatically get exposure through our newsletters each month.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

As the chamber has a responsibility to the community, we identify annually needy people or institutions that desperately need help.

BUSINESS MARKETING

On the chambers website there will be space provided to members to promote their business. The cost of advertisement space is R300 per month for non-members. Every normal member may advertise at no cost for one month in the space provided to them. Contact the business forum and let us help you get your business known to other members.
