Every day in South Africa feels like being in a boxing ring, laments Aurik Business Accelerator Director and CEO Pavlo Phitidis.

How do you create it in your organisation?

Who is doing it well right now?

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Phitidis for his weekly small business feature.
