With the current economy in shambles, Reverend Steve Olivier approached Global Advance, an international entity which invests time, talent and resources into emerging nations.
Olivier requested that Global Advance brings high-profile businessmen and women to Knysna and surrounds for a business conference.
Olivier said that the aim behind his request that Global Advance visits the area was that the entity could encourage, inspire, teach and train business owners, entrepreneurs, leaders and managers in both the commercial and governmental sectors. “As a pastor I have the same desire as Global Advance to see the economic and spiritual capital of this region increased,” he added.
Shaun van Eck, speaking in his personal capacity, said: “The Grow Conference is an amazing opportunity for Knysna, having beaten Cape Town and PE to hosting this high-powered line-up of international speakers. These include the CEO of the company that owns KFC and Pizza Hut, a surgeon voted the best in her field for five years, and three businessmen who have spoken extensively around the world on growth strategies and using Christian Principles to open doors in the business world.”
The Grow! International ‘Connect’ Dinner and Cruise will cost R300 per person and is organised by the South African host team. It will take place on Knysna Ferry from 17:00 till 21:00 on Friday, August 10. Local roleplayers will be able to interact with the visiting Global Advance team to focus on positive solutions to the area’s economic problems.
The Grow! International Business Conference will be held the following day (August 11) from 09:00 to 16:30 at the Moorings conference facility, George Rex Drive. Global Advance speakers will share their valuable knowledge on how to survive this economic climate. The accomplished international guest speakers include Dr Sally Knox-Witt, Gene Wallace, Nigel Belton, Jonathan Shilbley and Reverend Gareth Keown.
“Even though this is a Christian business conference – everyone is welcome no matter what belief system,” said Bev van Eck, member of the organising team. She added that this conference is not a Cristian recruitment or evangelistic outreach activity. “It will be all about business and motivating us in these difficult times,” she concluded.
