The Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) Durban chapter are sending Clinton Ngobe, a local young businessman who is in the process of completing his business studies, to Cape Town to compete for the right to represent South Africa in the GSEA (Global Student Entrepreneur Awards) in Frankfurt in April this year.
Clinton is 24 years old, and is the CEO of a business linkage company called Uyitolotolo Holdings. His company links small businesses to large corporations to find win-win solutions for both. He was born in Kwa-Mashu, educated at Rossburgh High School, and is currently completing his business studies through Regent business school, whilst still running his business.
The EO Durban Chapter offers entrepreneurs access to a global organisation – there are 160 chapters around the world – that promotes learning, growing and development of entrepreneurs. Award winning Entrepreneur, Grant Gavin, a member of the EO Durban Chapter and Founder of the Durban Entrepreneurs Club, was asked by the chapter to mentor Clinton on his presentation skills in preparation for his interview next week, with ideas on how to engage with his audience, how to position himself and his business in a way that is appealing to the judges and how to project and present in a way so that he comes across as authentic, and allows the judges to see who he is, his values, his vision or his life and his business.
