Looking back on the first quarter of 2018

The year got off to a great start at our beautiful new offices (address https://bit.ly/2H33BZb), to ignite 2018 we decided to have an office warming, any excuse for a party. We transformed our workspace into a cocktail venue where we delighted clients, stakeholders and service providers with delicious food from Eat Greek, glamorous yet relaxed summer décor from Lifestyle Bazaar and smooth music from Chris Jensen. Guests were treated to trendy gin cocktails, from The Gin Girls. We would like to extend our appreciation to everyone who attended the office warming.


Back to work, our oldest clients Democracy Development Program (DDP) presented an opportunity for delegates to upack SONA 2018 with leading political analyst Aubrey Matshiqi at the Garden Court Marine Parade in addition to their regular meetings and workshops which speak to democracy development.

Kwa Thintwa School for The Deaf hosted a breakfast to honour their matriculants great results at their premises in Cato Ridge, if you would like to participate in future fundraising initiatives at Kwa Thintwa you are welcome to drop us a mail and we will point you in the right direction.

Kwazulu-Natal Medical Care Coalition (KZNDHC) gave us a taste for what’s to come in 2018 when they presented their opening meeting/dinner. They aim to provide a space for debate and opportunities to up skill and further develop healthcare professionals in KZN.

Our neighbours here at Westriding Offices, South African Institute of Chartered accounts (SAICA) offered their members a variety of exciting and informative sessions such as the Wiz ‘n Wiki Quiz Night at the Oyster Box, Umhlanga, an IFRS information session which allowed for QnA with interesting speakers and of course their very own version of the Amazing Race which promoted team spirit and problem solving under the facilitation of the inimitable team from Beach and Bush Team Building.

South African Technology Network (SATN), took us to new venue in the Gateway Hotel Umhlanga for their opening engagement with their members, set the tone for the year ahead. SATN will present their 10th annual conference from 11 – 13 September 2018 at Tsogo Sun Elangeni in partnership with the Durban University of Technology (DUT). The focus for this year’s conference is 4th Industrial Revolution: Role of Universities.

We welcomed Standard Bank to the thoughtFIRE family by assisting with their breakfast at Tsogo Sun Elangeni. We look forward to moving forward with them in the future.


Last, but definitely not less was Durban’s beloved businessman and philanthropist Vivian Reddy’s 65th Birthday Celebration (VR65) hosted at his gorgeous home in Umhlanga. With surprise performances and a constant flow of fabulous food we had his guest dancing ‘til the wee hours despite a surprise thunder shower (which tested us to the limit no less!). We would like to commend Mr Reddy for not only been ever so welcoming to his friends, family and colleagues but also for partnering with Reach For A Dream to make the dreams of 65 children with life-threatening illnesses come true in the build up to his milestone birthday.

The first quarter of the year has set the tone for the year ahead, we look forward to providing our clients with our signature thoughtFIRE service excellence.
