A new strategic intelligence briefing by the Centre for Risk Analysis – South Africa’s leading political, social, and economic risk advisory group.
SACANCHAM members and partners attended a Strategic Intelligence Briefing delivered by Chris Hattingh, Head of Policy Analysis at the Centre for Risk Analysis (“CRA”). The event, hosted courtesy of Norton Rose Fulbright South Africa, was well attended and Chris, drawing on well researched facts and data, shared his insights on the key driving forces shaping South Africa. His incisive analysis of how the political landscape is shifting ahead of the 2024 elections and the risks and opportunities facing businesses, challenged guests to rethink their strategies. A lively Q&A session ended with animated discussions continuing over refreshments.
“The feedback from attendees has been most positive and supports our view that the South African people are desperate for constructive and well-researched commentary on the socio-political landscape…” says Mike Morgan, CEO of SACANCHAM
