9 9 Lessons learnt Communication “Leaders are only as powerful as the ideas they can communicate. They inspire their followers to higher levels of achievement by showing them how their work contributes to worthwhile ends. It is an emotional appeal to one of the most fundamental of human needs – the need to be important, to make a difference, to feel useful and to be part of a successful and worthwhile enterprise” – Warren Bennis and Burt Nanus

29 My business philosophy Read / Think / Scheme Challenge sounding boards Warren Buffet (summarized & typed) My own writings and philosophies 29

30 Ultimate empowerment “Choose competent people, place them in key positions and trust their judgment implicitly” - Conrad Hilton Ultimate empowerment Owner-managed company Detest red tape and bureaucracy Passion for excellence Winners / confident Fun and enjoy life Purpose & Freedom 30

31 Character Character / Reputation Standing, status, character, honour. Brand Symbol, mark, logo, emblem, grade, label, make name. A brand can be bought. A reputation can only be earned. Over time a good reputation will build solid brands whilst a bad reputation will destroy good brands. 31 Character & Integrity – Ultimate goal

32 Bad reputations and characters Fidentia Lots of advertising / sponsorships – Cricket, Rugby, Choir, etc. Fooled several people - One of Big 4 banks thought they were “client of high standing” JCI / Brett Kebble JCI was listed on JSE in 1889 – Later split into Angloplats, Johnnic and JCI. Friends – Glen Agliotti, Jacki Selebi Brett Kebble Art Awards 32

33 Reputations, brands and integrity Anton Rupert – Believed in solid brands built through Reputation, Advertising, Time / Patience Raymond Ackerman / Pick ‘n Pay Christo Wiese / Shoprite & Pep RMBH – Character - Laurie Dippenaar, GT Ferreira, Paul Harris – Brands – Momentum, Outsurance, Discovery, FNB / Firstrand etc 33 It takes time to earn a reputation

34 Warren Buffett - quotes “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently” “You and I are the guardians of that reputation. And in the long run we will have whatever reputation we deserve.” ~ "There is plenty of money to be made in the centre of the court. There is no need to play around the edges.” ~ “It’s best not to do something that you know is wrong, because if you are caught, the price you pay may be more than you can afford.” 34

35 Reputation in Financial Services Reputation your Everything “My word is my bond” / “Dictum meum pactum” -Since 1801 motto of LSE, transactions made without exchange of documents or written pledges. A2 Banking Crisis (2001/2) Started by collapse of Saambou Bank Run on the banks – Regal, TBB, Unifer, RAD, BOE, New Republic Bank Current crisis Greed and risk 35

36 PSG Not a big advertiser – did not go out to establish a brand Established good corporate governance – this lead to a good reputation in turn leading to a credible brand People are our reputation through communication – Radio,TV, newspapers, magazines We advertise our products with our people 36 We have a brand and character

37 What I've learned Not to do business with people of questionable integrity. With a great reputation (Company and CEO) people/public will want to do business with you. If you have the reputation for integrity and fair dealing, people will approach you with deals/business. The shrewd / astute businessman asks: “Who is the face behind that brand?” Therefore protect and enhance your reputation if you want your business and its brands to grow. 37

38 38 “Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” Dale Carnegie

39 Contribution to South-Africa 39 South-Africa – Great, beautiful country – Opportunities Be positive! ’n Profitable company makes a contribution to society: – employs people – pays taxes – provides training – donations and other contributions
