A highlight of the MEMSA calendar is the annual MEMSA Golf Day and this year was no exception!
The sun was shining, the course in fantastic shape, the tee-boxes manned, and the atmosphere festive, exactly the combination needed for a successful networking golf day.
Golf is making a comeback as a valuable tool in doing business, with its popularity and global appeal making it an ideal way to develop customers and build relationships. Time spent with customers or colleagues on the golf course in a relaxed setting with a shared love of the game gives golfers a common bond, and successful executives contend that some of their most effective networking and best deals occurred on the golf course.
With a full field we opted for a shotgun start. After their round players congregated on the deck for sundowners and a 'Sunset Shootout' with the nearest the pin prize and bragging rights going to Braam Smit from AZMET Technology and Projects.
This year MEMSA was proud to partner with The Character Company, a MENtorship programme which teaches young boys without fathers or positive male role models to be 'good men', and the proceeds from the auction prizes went to this wonderful cause. Congratulations to Reunko Steel Suppliers, AZMET Technology and Projects, and KwaNgwane Consulting on winning your respective auction prizes. Thank you Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery (Electra Mining Africa) , Siyenza Events (Manufacturing Indaba), DMG Events (West African Mining & Energy Expo (WAMPEX)), and Nkonyeni Golf Estate, Eswatini for sponsoring the auction prizes and helping us raise R75k for this wonderful charity.
Mr. Bafana Mabindisa kindly volunteered (on his wedding anniversary) to be the MC for the prize-giving dinner and did double duty as the auctioneer for the evening. MEMSA thanks you for giving freely of your time, especially on such an important date.
