...of large global technology and automobile companies by focusing on compelling storytelling, responsive engagement and paid media amplification. "For marketing purposes alone it can be a unique goldmine of data—essentially serving as a panel of consumers whose work, schooling, income, likes and dislikes across other brands, activities, interests and TV shows can now be known, and even compared to those of other social audiences’—a competitor’s, for example. We’ve moved beyond a world where Twitter and Facebook are just tools for measuring engagement and performing customer service, and into a world where your social audience is your real-time market research panel."

What it means is that for the first time an affordable, large tonnage, dedicated heavy haul coal line shall be available to Botswana based coal miners giving us the first realistic opportunity to export tens of millions of tonnes of coal per annum, which is currently not possible due to the lower spare capacity available on existing rail. When we are able to make full use of the Trans Kalahari Railway line Botswana, will become a very significant player in the area of global sea borne thermal coal."
"The P41 million industrial properties will increase the yield of the business by 26%, and we expect to see our 2014 income rise" she said
