    About privilege - what can we do about it?

    Posted by Brian V Moore on November 30, 2015 at 16:42 0 Comments

    Privilege is often a fact of unconscious bias. How do we deal with it?

    “Privilege is a set of unearned benefits given to people who fit into a specific social group.”

    To be privileged is not a failing, it is a fact of your birth and circumstances. I personally have not been very aware of privilege, as an issue. Yet it critically affects so many lives.

    I always believed that to be privileged was to be rich. Yet privilege is about those…


    Why Choose to Become an Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor

    Posted by Kevin Lee on November 27, 2015 at 12:32 0 Comments

    Training to become a doctor is a decision that is usually taken at a young age.  This is partly due to the amount of training required and also to do with the background of sciences which is necessary to qualify for the training.  Of course, it is possible to train as a doctor later in life, but the time period can complicate this further as you are more likely to have a lifestyle which needs supporting.

    The basic training follows these steps:

    When we first see ourselves as human beings

    Posted by Brian V Moore on November 17, 2015 at 9:02 12 Comments

    One World – One Humanity!

    One Human Race.

    As a 12 year old white boy, I stood on the side of a Bancroft road in Zambia, and waved my Zambian flag at the first President of our newly independent Zambia. He smilingly waved his white handkerchief at the crowds as he sailed past. As kids we were not perturbed with the change from colonial rule to African rule. It was just another day off school.

    As the leader of a country with incredible…


    Copies of certificates

    Posted by Jackie Franck on November 13, 2015 at 14:15 5 Comments

    Hi everyone

    I run the risk of having asked this before, or this having being posted before, but I need help.

    I need copies of certificates for someone:

    • Matric, in Durban in 1978
    • Advanced Diploma RAU (UJ) in 1984

    I will try contact UJ to see if they could help me with the Advanced Diploma, but any other suggestions for me would really be appreciated.

    Thanks, and enjoy your weekends!

    How to keep your employees happy

    Posted by Chantel Harris on November 13, 2015 at 14:10 0 Comments

    As a business owner or the person responsible for running a business, one of the worst things you can do is make your employees unhappy. A major part of your focus should be keeping the people who work for you happy.


    A happy employee will do their best work for you and will always be willing to go the extra mile. Those are the people you want to be working for you. And the good news is that it doesn’t take much…


    The Importance of Diversity Management & Conflict Reslotion

    Posted by Chanel du Plessis on November 13, 2015 at 12:30 0 Comments

    South Africa has come a long way since 1994. We are known across the globe as “The Rainbow Nation”, a name we wear with pride. Because of our cultural diversity regarding race, ethnicity, colour, sexual orientation, religion, background, and somewhat tragic past, we still have a long way to go as a Country, to accept one and other. Understanding your fellow man and colleague can go a long way to manage conflict in organisations and managing diversity within the work environment. To achieve…
