Next of Next week Roadshow 2.0

Work has commenced on the industrial theatre project and the first event is set for 21 July 2017. To get the ‘show on the road,’ production company Diprente, is looking for suitable spaces and a central booking system. Universities are being considered as possible venues.

Manage My Finances

Bright Media has started developing the material for both the schools’ Technical Maths resource as well as books for the tertiary project.

The materials were ready for sign-off in March 2017 and training will commence in May 2017.

The development of the website is in progress. Knowyourinsurance.co.za has been registered as the primary domain name for the website and we are looking forward to building this as an educational platform.
