  • Provided ongoing mentorship programme management
  • Assisted with the establishment of new ventures out of operations earmarked to be closed down, such as a tinware printing company in Cape Town
  • Supported local service providers – including businesses established by previous employees
  • Facilitated putting black-owned suppliers on early payment terms to improve their cash flows
  • Onboarded new black-owned suppliers into the database
  • Organised and ran roadshows to all divisions which increased awareness of what is good enterprise and supplier development and understanding of interventions that lead to sustainability
  • Brought management and staff on board by relating the mentorship action plan directly to their needs and challenges; while being sustainable, determining realistic expectations together with defined (financial and non-financial) returns and measurable impact
