    Respecting diversity is good business!

    Posted by Brian V Moore on November 22, 2014 at 15:26 4 Comments

    If you could do business with foreigners, would you learn how to understand and respect them? Of course you would.

You learn a few words in their language. You attend a course on body language and you learn about social…

    I have been taking more time to be aware of who is around me, and am taking time to see how I give be more kind and caring. 



    Here is another lesson from our 13 year old son Lliam, that has re-awakened this awareness.

    I was with him at the bakery, where a beautiful and gracious, 70-something Zulu lady sat with a number of brooms. She was selling them to supplement her meager…

     All people are looking for, is a little respect and recognition.

    Our Los Angeles shuttle driver looked bemused, after we had greeted our hotel porter, in Spanish.

    That phone call from Istanbul, “Fortunate has won!” will not be forgotten very soon. A journey which started late in December last year culminated in a young colleague, Fortunate Mboweni, winning the 2014 Young Freight Forwarder of the Year competition which is organised by the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA).

    Fortunate is the first Africa born African to have won this competition since its inception in 1999.
