Some companies do well.
Some do well, and good.
“Make a Difference Mondays” is all about businesses – no matter how big, or small - that are socially aware, and doing good work.
It’s about businesses that are innovative in the way they are making a positive difference in the world; perhaps even sacrificing profit to do so.
This week Whitfield interviewed Lindiwe Temba, Divisional Executive of Corporate Social Responsibility at Nedbank.
She spoke about Nedbank’s “Get to Graduation” program.
Whitfield also spoke to Gareth Armstrong, Corporate Finance Transactor at Rand Merchant Bank (RMB).
Amstrong discussed RMB’s “Surgeons for Little Lives”.
Whitfield then gave two inspirational small businesses the floor.
The one - Khaliques - refurbishes old suits, then gives them to people who can't afford one, but need one for an interview.
The other - Matsobanemetja Business Consulting - offers free business coaching to empower women.
