This month we celebrate our National Heritage Day and it is with great pride that we do so. Our former President and global human rights icon Nelson Mandela said of it:
“When our first democratically-elected government decided to make Heritage Day one of our national days, we did so because we knew that our rich and varied cultural heritage has a profound power to help build our new nation.”
Celebrated on September 24th every year our National Heritage Day - sometimes known a National ‘braai’ Day, celebrates the strength in the diversity of our rainbow nation, but it wasn’t always so.
It was originally known in KwaZulu-Natal, as Shaka Day, in commemoration of the legendary Zulu King who played an important role in uniting disparate Zulu clans into a cohesive nation.
The idea was the same though and Shaka also recognised the strength in unity. What we find fascinating about our rainbow nation is that it is exactly our differences and the diversity of our people that produce the strong resilient nation we have become.
The pandemic has shown how we stand together in a crisis, but it is our flexibility that enables us to do that. It is those who can bend and change in extraordinary circumstances that will make it through the storm – like the tall palm tree that can bend to the ground against a raging wind.
It was also with great interest that we recently read of so many businesses discovering the versatility of their employees since they have had to adapt to a virtual world. All of a sudden they can learn in different ways, communicate with different people and even hold major events online.
Virtual Assistants have led the way in this regard showing great versatility and organisational abilities in the virtual space for some time. V-Assist, for example, offers such a wide range of services, but still include specialisations in several areas like travel, legal and medical professions, events and social media. There is practically nothing we can’t do or source for any business.
Does this make us a jack of all trades? No, it makes us flexible, versatile and sufficiently diverse in our offerings to offer a one-stop solution for any business wishing to outsource the services they don’t have the time (or inclination) to do.
One could rightfully say – it’s our heritage that has made us great – so contact us and start to change the way you do business today!
