We have kicked off our South Africa trip with a busy few days. A major stakeholder event at the Wanderers Club in Johanesburg (pictures) was attended by 60 people, including the Dutch ambassador.
The next day we organised a Philips South Africa football tournament for employees. This was off course played early evening under the new solar floodlights and involved 8 teams from all the sectors.
There was great passion and excitement throughout and a great team spirit. The legacy of a great South African World Cup can be felt here and people are quite rightly proud.
Our journey now continues down to Durban – a small 600km hop – which should only take a day in our truck. More stakeholder briefings are set to follow but right now were going to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery in the world!
