Routine phonecall With Top DSE Current Affairs News Analyst Proves To Be A Master Stroke In Business News Networking

The Sunday Express

 

What sounded like a routine phonecall from one of the best current affairs news analysts on The Sunday Express this week – proved to be a master stroke.

Trust Sibanda is a familiar figure in the Sunday Express, and not only does he bring trust, opinion, analysis, perspectives and incisive business knowledge – he is without doubt a very knowledgeable man about Zimbabwean politics.

Sibanda called the online newspaper to say that he had participated in the survey to inform the digital strategy of the Sunday Express – which called for the need to consolidate the market that has been created by the DSE communities.

Where the Sunday Express had handpicked many of our contributors into clusters of news and current affairs feeder groups of information – it was time to heed the call for giving back to those same communities – by creating even more nodal points where the newspaper will network and See News Differently.

 

 

The same networks which are operating under the Property Digest, Healthcare Magazine, Farmers News Network, Freight and Logistics, and your usual features.

But this time where people actually introduce themselves, and their interest in the network.

This week a new business frontier – which is wholly led by Trust Sibanda and a selection of handpicked business leaders – and for which he felt the need to make the phone call – and advise DSE that he was adding the newspaper to the network.

So we gladly joined – and true to what Sibanda had said: news is plentiful – what is needed only are perspectives, analytics, seek and find innovations, turning conversation into action, and bringing like minded people together.

Trust Sibanda is not anyone. And not only in the Sunday Express. We met him while he was exhibiting Teemil at Proudly263Global, and after he read and followed our coverage of the event – he immediately volunteered to be our correspondent.

What followed were reels of strategic writings, depths of disapora news information, essays, analysis, conversations, debate, and inciteful networking – most of which he not only shares on our multitudes of newsgroups – but takes his own time to bring aforth his own thoughts, ideas, solutions and futuristic analogy of everything.

So here is how he introduced himself to the new business network.

 

 

In his own words

My name is Trust Sibanda. I am into Manpower Development. I run a company called Teemil Safety Health and Environmental Consultants. I run trainings in health, safety and environmental field. Course like first aid, Fire Fighting etc for legal compliance.

The certificates we offer are accredited by Local Government Sector Education Training Authority in South Africa and there are SAQA recognised.

Our target market are companies, mines etc we do not offer trainings to individuals due to high costs involved.

The value I can add to the group could be related to legal compliance and I also need ideas on how to diversify and start a business in Zimbabwe.

He added: We want to run away from the idea of self enrichment which I think has destroyed many organisations. In terms of recruitment its true that we don’t know each other – even in this new group.

 

 

We had to hand pick people who are in business via recommendations other than using a group link simply because we wanted to establish a common background: which is business and from this number I am sure members will recommend people whom they want to be part of the group due to their business orientation, said Sibanda.

On the question of membership fees

Thanks for this suggestion but my worry is 1. The question is the use of the joining fee as we don’t have a constitution, neither do we have projects that need financing. The biggest fear is that money can spoil our vision. Let us build something solid from our talents and that will generate money in the long run where people can just donate if there are willing for group growth and projects.

Creating a network

The idea of the Zim Business Connect is to create a business network that will bring the world to the screen of our phones. Shrinking a wider landscape to a small area. We need to uplift each other network and advise each other and above all create opportunities for one another as a united front hence the need to eradicate fault lines

Investing In Zimbabwe

We have people in the diaspora who want to invest home and we have people home who want to break international markets I think motivates why our group has people in and out of the country. I admit that you came to a group that is not organised and without rules. That was done on purpose the idea being that let us build the group together and become founding members. We need to decide on the rules, Admins and everything that gives birth to a functional group.

 

 

Ownership of the platforms

We must own the group as members it will be wrong to have someone who is above the group or its rules. View me as a person who is creating a platform that enables us to have a group that is productive.

My wish is to see ZBC growing into a big house that will create ZBC Harare, ZBC Bulawayo, ZBC, Hwange etc. The question is what do we stand to benefit as members? Strength in numbers and a one stop all platform where we trade amongst one another and compete in a healthy way and offer discounts for fellow members etc where possible.

I also have a vision where service providers get recommendations from the group wherever they trade. If we mature enough we can have this platform grow into a trade council if laws permit.

For that, Trust Sibanda Is The DSE Newsmaker Of The Week.
