A DUT Public Relations Management graduate, Mfundo Shozi, along with other young entrepreneurs hosted a business talk seminar themed: “Life Always Rewards Those Who Take Action”.

The founder (Shozi) of Uvolwethu Communications, whose student life was a bit delayed after a car accident, has been encouraging his peers and current DUT students to pursue being entrepreneurs. The Uvolwethu Communications business seminar is in its second year and took place at the Durban University of Technology’s Cane Growers Hall, ML Sultan campus.

“It is true that anyone can get an eight-to-five job right out of University, but most of the time it doesn’t happen to be a job that people love or are happy about,” said Shozi.
The aim of the 2017 seminar was to inspire entrepreneurship amongst DUT students and to spread the message of not being solely reliant on being employed. Over 200 students were in attendance at the seminar with 13 young and profound entrepreneurs such as Mluleki Qwabe, Praise Khumalo and Zamanguni Myeni to name a few, amongst the guest speakers.

“The seminar was a success and bigger than the previous year’s one. We, as the DUT community, appreciate all the young professionals from diverse industries who shared their knowledge and secrets to successful entrepreneurship,” said Shozi.

The 2017 business talk was sponsored by DUT’s Public Relations Department, DUT Development and Alumni Relations Department, RadioDUT, Go Mobile Wireless (IT solutions), PR Dynamic Minds and Uvolwethu Communications. Proceeds of all funds raised at the seminar were donated to a charity organisation.
