The paradigm of the moment is global business driven by the digital age. That is what we are focusing on under the theme; “Boosting International Business through Digital Marketing.”  We have experts to demonstrate what it takes to be a success and set you onto greatness. Hon Minister Mzembi, the accomplished visionary who was a run up for the position of Secretary General, United Nations World Tourism, Farai Gundan, Mason Fellow at Harvard and Forbes Magazine writer, Professor Ernest Kadembo, the convener and strategist for SM2TF, Dr Doug Mamvura, the marketing champion and turnaround strategist, David Smith, the driver for Africa diaspora business development, permanent secretary Dr Desire Sibanda, with experience of investment planning and promotion, Cleopas Chiketa, an upcoming coach and facilitator, among others are lined up to deliver excellence.

This is serious business and we promise to deliver. It is not often that you witness such expertise paraded and ready to unleash knowledge and experience. We have it covered; the home front and the diaspora. There are practitioners and academics and it is all pointing at a rare transformational indaba to inspire YOU and change your life. Many questions on why you cannot progress will be answered.

We have the experience, are tried and tested and above all provide substance and relevance in what we deliver. This is not a talk shop. We mean business, we are results driven. You can change your life, So why miss this rare opportunity?
