DURBAN businessman Vivian Reddy drew in over 200 people to the recently held Durban Entrepreneurs Club Meeting at the Durban Country club.

The Durban Entrepreneurs Club (DEC) that was founded by Grant Gavin in October last year, brings in high calibre speakers – mostly entrepreneurs – to share their experiences with members.

Grant said, when he opened the meeting, “The club was started with the vision of bringing like minded people together to share ideas and ultimately do business together. Relationship building and networking are two important business tools, and that is exactly what we want to encourage at the DEC.

“We also want our members to benefit personally and in business from listening to the stories of successful entrepreneurs, and it is a great privilege to have one of South Africa’s most successful entrepreneurs, Vivian Reddy as our guest speaker.”

According to a report released by a global research firm, Durban is producing millionaires faster than any other cities in South Africa, and it is rapidly becoming the new City of Gold.

Reddy is a true testament to that statement. Coming from a humble background, Reddy has amassed a fortune over the last 37 years – from “shear hard work – and random acts of kindness.”

Reddy pointed out that over the years he has found that people will never forget about the way you make them feel. “No man can be rich without enriching others,” said Reddy.

“Don’t harbour hatred. Take a leaf out of Mandela’s book. When he stepped out of jail, he left all his bitterness behind for good. That is the way to live life,” he added.

The next Durban Entrepreneurs club meeting will be held on July 21 with Terry Rosenberg, chairman of Oakbrook Holdings, as guest speaker.
