The Potchefstroom Chamber of Commerce Black Tie Annual General Meeting, Management Elections and Award Ceremony took place on 21 April 2022. Along with 150 members and friends of the Potchefstroom Chamber of Commerce, we honoured our members, reflected on the past year’s projects, and listened to thought leader G.P. van Oudtshoorn’s valuable and entertaining business advice.

It was a privilege to have G.P. van Oudtshoorn as the guest speaker at our  #ProPotch Annual Black Tie AGM & Award Ceremony. His anecdotes always pique our curiosity and encourage us to be more innovative in the workplace.
