We assist BEE Practitioners to move from a reactive to a strategic mindset 

With increased regulatory B-BBEE complexity, and widening gap between external demands and internal capabilities, a standard reactive approach to B-BBEE is not a sustainable approach. In an environment where regulations get tougher, budgets tighter and growing expectations on the abilities of the BEE Practitioners.

A shift from reactive to strategic is key to success in this environment.

The BEE Chamber has all needed services required to facilitate this shift.
