How will the death of Nelson Mandela affect the value of your business? I have just been asked this question by a client.
It will have no effect at all. It will have no effect now at all because of people like Nelson Mandela who made great sacrifices to secure that business value twenty years ago. He led a nation away from any chance of civil war, and helped us all contribute to a much more secure and prosperous future.
The value of your business is more about what you do with it than the death of an icon.
Now get back to work.
Tonight I will go and spend a few hours in Vilakazi Street with my family and fellow South Africans.
