Member Testimonial

Babalwa New Member

Babalwa Desi, Consulting Industrial Psychologist & Managing Director of Desi Industrial Psychologists, recently signed up as a New Member of the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber. She had the following to say about her reasons for joining:

"The insights I got confirmed that this is indeed an opportune time for me to take my business to another level. I am the eternal victim of self-doubt among other things. However, the reflection enabled me to refine my view of what I have to offer business, having all the acquired industry experience and specialised training. I look forward to partnering with The Business Chamber, as we all try to influence a shift for our city to move to greater heights. At the same time I hope to leverage on all opportunities to grow my business brand as a contributor of substance in industry."
