The SA economy is like an ocean liner
High unemployment, declining business confidence and debt are just some of the factors landing SA in rough waters.

Our panel of experts, Annabel Bishop, Investec Chief Economist, Chris Holdsworth, Investec Wealth & Investment Chief Investment Strategist and David Gracey, Investec Head of Foreign Exchange and Fixed Income Trading, give an in-depth analysis of the recovery plan and expectations of the mid-term budget. The conversation is facilitated by journalist and anchor Cathy Mohlahlana.

Part 3: The changing role of business post pandemic

Episode 6: The Women Behind the Mask – The humanity of technology
In the latest edition of The Women Behind the Mask series, a panel, made up of some of South Africa’s leading young tech entrepreneurs, discusses the Covid-19 pandemic and how it has highlighted ways in which technology can enable business activity when traditional ways of doing things are not possible. However it has also shone a spotlight on the importance of the human interface, not just in making technologies work for businesses, but also for remaining relevant for their customers and the broader community.
