ANDREW Layman, CEO of the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business (PCB), will be presenting a talk at the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) in conjunction with the PCB on February 11, entitled “A New World: New markets, new opportunities”.

Layman spent 30 years in education, and was appointed to manage the former PCCI in 1997. He has now been occupied in his second career for 12 years, a period during which he has learnt a great deal about economics and business. International trading opportunities cross his desk regularly and he has contact with a number of people who bring information to the Chamber.

Layman represents the PCB on numerous forums and committees and in a variety of different business or economic-related spheres. He is a director of the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) and a member of the Council of the Umgungundlovu FET College. He is also a Trustee of MIDI and a member of the Msunduzi Municipality’s Audit Committee.

In this late afternoon presentation, Layman will share much of this information for the benefit of business people and others interested in international affairs. He will also focus on the potential in Africa.

The talk takes place at 5 pm for 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm at Chamber House. Please note the time of this meeting and that 24 hours’ cancellation is required.

Costs are R60 for members of SAIIA, R80 for members of PCB and R120 for non members.
