Digital is the new age business

WHITE RIVER – The digital age is rapidly changing how the world does business.

Small business owners and entrepreneurs had the opportunity to learn how technology can empower their companies during the digital age business breakfast at White River Library on Saturday.

“We are living in a different world today, a digital age, and we can’t do business as usual,” said Nick Ndlovhu, founder of Nick Inspires. “It is important to be innovative in business.”

The invitation-only event focused on small groups of people from local government, non-profit organisations and entrepreneurs.
Motivational speaker, Irvin Sambo encouraged business owners not to be afraid of changes brought about by improved technology, but rather to embrace them.

IT lecturer at the University of Mpumalanga, Sinazo Mashila spoke about the current global trends in technology and the impact they have on businesses.

“It is very important that we put White River on the map and make it more attractive to visitors,” said Hilton Barnett, from We are White River.

It was not all business though, and the audience was treated to performances by local artist, Evidence Khambane and jokes from Neville Moya, who was the master of ceremonies.


“It was a fabulous talk that was definately inspiring,” said one of the attendees, Marlize Meyer, owner of the Joy of Art Gallery.
