challenging and accommodating rapidly changing and turbulent
socio-economic climates. He has successfully pioneered the design of
organisational resilience models for the benefit of all stakeholders.

establishing best practice Youth Centres in South Africa. He has also
been instrumental in the development of the Watson Institute of Business
Leadership (WIBL) which has satisfied aspirational career path needs
of Bosasa personnel.

business partnerships. He has actively led the establishment of a client
driven, technology division within the Group, with a turnover in excess

Agrizzi has refused to compromise valued clients by
accepting stale technologies traditionally sold off to South Africa for
local and laissez-faire consumption. His procurement business driver
is to identify technology innovative hotspots throughout the globe for
sourcing only First World applications. This successful strategy,
coupled to consortium partnerships with reputable international
organisations, has sustained Bosasa as ‘first choice’ vendor.
