Asante Nx­u­malo, Bu­lumko Na­pakade and Keeno Koop­man will rep­re­sent South Africa in Lon­don where the fi­nals will take place next Thurs­day. “Stu­dents needed to form a co­he­sive team, lever­ag­ing their dif­fer­ent strengths, to create an orig­i­nal busi­ness pro­posal fo­cused on be­ing com­pet­i­tive in sat­u­rated or emerg­ing mar­kets and rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing cus­tomers’ ex­pe­ri­ences, which is syn­ony­mous with our com­pany and trans­form­ing our in­dus­try,” BAT SA hu­man re­sources area head Les­lie Rance said of the com­pe­ti­tion. “The real test for the fi­nal­ists was in con­vinc­ing BAT’s judg­ing panel of the po­ten­tial suc­cess of their idea. What set the fi­nal­ists apart was their abil­ity to show their ex­per­tise in col­lab­o­ra­tion and their de­ter­mi­na­tion to win.” – African News Agency (ANA)
