Driven by the need to empower others

Business sense may be defined as keenness and quickness in understanding and dealing with a business situation (risks and opportunities) in a manner that is likely to lead to a good outcome. As the challenges of the past few years have shown, we always need to be ready for the next test. The dynamic world we live in waits for no one.

The front page and page 3 article feature Portio Dlamini, founder and CEO of Emakheni Cleaning & Industrial Solutions. Portio’s career path has shown much good business sense, in addition to being driven by the need to empower other people.
