Brett Malila, our Programme Manager for the Northern Cape, recently visit Tswelopele Correctional Centre in Kimberley. 10 days after his return back to the office he received this THANK YOU card from one of the inmates that he had addressed in the correctional centre.
Vega School of Brand Leadership facilitated a two hour workshop for managers and Award Leaders of our youth centres and community groups in Gauteng recently. This is the second workshop facilitated by Vega School and they will be offering the workshop to 100+ Award Participants in Gauteng over the next 2 months.
Feedback from the 35 leaders in attendance reflected that they learnt much from the experience. Here are a few comments: • It reminded me to remember who I am and who I am representing in the field I’m working in. • The workshop helped to get me to focus on what we do and to start thinking about visualizing the brand so that the values are translated into our visual appearance. • Workshop was a huge eye opener and it was a wakeup call as some of the things I always take for granted. • My brand as a person is connected to the brand of the organisation.
Thanks to all at the Vegas School for you thought provoking workshops!
So, Mr Oupa Tshabalala, Programme Manager at the NYDA, comes to visit our National Office today. We are discussing the final details of a Service Level Agreement between ourselves and the NYDA.
He then says: "I did my Bronze Award in 1995/96 in Soweto! In fact, I was trained in the Pilanesberg by Trevor Elliot of the Wilderness Leadership School to lead hikes. So I worked for the Award in Soweto, leading hikes. You don't need to tell me about the value of the Award Programme - you are preaching to the converted".
So we said, "Let us have a look at the Annual Reports from that era and see if there is a photograph of you..."
The photograph below is a photo which we found in the 1995 Annual Report. When Oupa saw it - he declared, excitedly: "That's me!" (circled in red).
Guess who is leading our next hike in the Gauteng region ....
Thanks for visiting us Oupa - we really valued your time and input!
