The EDP launch will take place at the Cape Town Film Studios (Corner of N2 Highway and Baden Powell Drive, Faure, Cape Town) on Thursday, 26 April, from 10.00 – 13.00, followed by a networking lunch. RSVP to email@example.com or call Ms. Rhonda Snyders on 021-419 1881 by Friday 20 April to ensure your participation.
On Thursday, 26th April, we will launch the Western Cape Economic Development Partnership (EDP) as part of facilitating effective partnerships for inclusive growth in our region.
The launch of the EDP will mark the start of a process of co-creation of economic vision and strategy, and co-implementation of economic programmes and projects. We cordially invite representatives from all organisations that are involved in the Western Cape economic development and delivery system to attend.
The launch will be an opportunity to demonstrate your support for building effective partnerships for inclusive growth, and to help shape the future programme of activities for the EDP. We will be focusing on key economic issues affecting the future of our country, region and localities and how we could collectively respond to the challenges that lie ahead. We will also highlight some of the exciting grassroots, local and regional economic partnerships that have already been established. There will be the option of a tour of the Cape Town Film Studios, which in itself is an innovative project that adds tremendous value to our economy.
I look forward to seeing you at the launch of this exciting new venture, which offers the possibility of forging a common economic development agenda and improving the performance of the regional economic development system.

How to Brand your Invention What to do and what not to do
Consumers decide if they will buy a product or use a service based on their PERCEPTION of how it will meet their needs. The brand, lets us imagine how good or bad the product is, even if we have not tested it!
The benefits of effective branding are sometimes quantifiable, some intangible, but all critical to your growth and prosperity. Bheki Yende is going to share his exploits in the world of advertising and branding. Having previously worked for ad-agency TBWA/Hunt/Lascaris he is now developing his own brand and will tell you what he has learnt along the way.
