Renowned radio and television personality, Gareth Cliff, founder of CliffCentral.com, commented:
“Cliff Central is all about entrepreneurship, and we have a number of shows dedicated to it. The future of South Africa isn’t in the hands of big corporations, unions or government – it’s in small business and big ideas. Virgin Atlantic and Sir Richard Branson are the first thing that pop into many people’s minds when you think of these things and so we’re thrilled to be allied with them in finding entrepreneurial talent, right here in South Africa.”
