Dear Valued Partners,
As we reflect on this year’s journey, having recently passed week 32 and racing towards the end of the year, we are reminded of the unwavering truth: “Motivation is the key that opens doors to greatness”. March’s sales message echoed this sentiment and today, more than ever, we remain convinced of its power and necessity.
Recent times have seen the emergence of a new COVID-19 variant, yet it’s heartening to note that it has been met with a small presence in the media landscape. While we remain vigilant, and continue to prioritise safety, the delight of in-person meetings rekindles the spirit of the “good old days”!
Financially, the rand continues to see-saw, fluctuating between as high as R19.4610 (in May) and down to R 17.02135 (June). This fluctuation, accompanied by ever-present political and energy challenges, could have dimmed our resolve. However, in the face of adversity and together with our partners, we continue to demonstrate resilience and grit, committed to delivering value.
A guiding principle, shared by our chairman, Rick Parry, is that of the ‘Customer Value Chain’. Picture a chain consisting of us (the distributor), our partners (architects of their solution, using Yellowfin), their customers (across multiple industries), and finally, the end users (that includes the likes of me and you). The strength of this chain rests upon each tier receiving value. It is this synergy that generates growth, keeps us moving forward and creates success stories, of which there are many. We invite all our partners and end users to continue sharing their success stories with us so that, together, we can communicate them to a wider audience.
In closing, let’s revisit a few invaluable tips to help ignite and nurture your teams’ motivation:
- – Invest in continuous training and development, for growth knows no limits.
- – Foster the spirit of teamwork, for united efforts yield remarkable results.
- – Sculpt an environment that encourages innovation and productivity, starting with your workspace.
- – Extend unwavering support, nurturing a culture where every individual thrives.
- – Harness the power of technology, transforming challenges into opportunities.
- – Revel in the glory of accomplishments, both big and small.
- – Keep your compass pointed towards the customer, for they are the heart of our mission.
- – Embrace transparency, building trust and forging stronger connections.
- – Cultivate a positive company culture, one that resonates with the joy of life itself.
As we step into the remainder of the year, may we all continue to reap the rewards of hard work, dedication and a passion for life!
Wishing you endless success and joy in all your endeavors.
