WHAT EXPERTS HAVE TO SAY
Brian Kantor is a pre-eminent economist. He is Investment Strategist and Economist at Investec Wealth and Investment and Professor Emeritus
at UCT and he regularly writes on the South African and global economy. "The initiative First Business Wellness (FBW) demonstrates beneficent
market forces in action. They are the actions of a risk-taking and highly innovative new enterprise. South Africa needs more of both risk-taking and
innovation if it is to prosper. Should FBW work out as so carefully planned it will help deliver a more productive South African business sector. One that
will promote not only the well-being of the owners of a business but that of its employees, suppliers, and customers- and with improved profitability and incomes - higher tax revenues for the State. This is what all successful businesses achieve.
First Business Wellness is a living example of an innovative business. I wish them every success"

The lawyers, accountants and branding strategists you meet at the same time, saving lots of time. I get to network as a member and enjoy preferential rates from professionals and experts.
