We started the day with an exceptional sight visit with the Springbok's, the national rugby union team. We had presentations from several high ranking people within the organization, including the current president of the South African Rugby Union (SARU) Oregan Hoskin.
It was a fascinating presentation for many reasons. But for me, the pervasiveness of "transformation" as part of the organization's strategy was really interesting. Apartheid has cast a long shadow in this country. Mr. Hoskin gave a very personal presentation on his experience as a "coloured" growing up in apartheid South Africa and becoming the elected head of SARU.
After the Springbok's visit, we headed out to Stellenbosch to learn more about the South African wine industry. We had a presentation at the Kanonkop Wine Estates on building a lifestyle brand as well as a wine tasting.
Then we were off to Anura for another tasting.
And we closed the night with our Welcome Dinner at Helena's in Stellenbosch.
