Didie Makobane spoke with Jason Cleghorn, marketing director at Maserati South Africa at the Sun PinkStig Series about Maserati.
There is no doubt that Maserati has become an iconic brand known for exclusivity, Italian design, performance and craftsmanship, but, says Cleghorn, to really stand out in the crowd and to keep clients coming back for more. The key to success is understanding the customer requirement.
This is especially important given the tough competition in the market, a stagnating economic climate and weakened exchange rate. As consumer pressure increases, clients search for vehicles that will give them the best return on their investments. This means that players in this segment simply have to know their customer better, he says.

As the year draws to a close, it’s time for some reflection…
Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Why was I born? These are all questions that we have asked ourselves, sometimes at the lowest part of our lives, when we have hit rock bottom, no matter our age.
For me, it was when I was 5 years old and I had my first existential crisis. Of course, I did not know what it was called back then… just this feeling of anxiety that no 5 year old should ever feel. What happens when we die? Is there really a Heaven? What will happen when my mother and grandmother and family die, who will take care of me? Why am I here? Was I a mistake?

I first encountered The Body Shop back in 1995 when I traveled overseas for the first time. I visited my aunt in Hamburg, Germany and there was a huge Body Shop in the train station. It was like being a kid in a candy shop, having heard about all the products, but not having access to any of it, now I finally could savour the delicious selections of body and beauty products. But for the past few years, South Africans have had access to the wonderful ranges that the Body Shop has to offer.

The Maze of the Lost City is one of the attractions at Sun City and BladWorks Post Productions took advantage of the venue by inviting Ivanna Samu to test her skills in the Maze.
More about the Maze of the Lost City
The largest permanent maze in the Southern Hemisphere, The Maze of the Lost City is constructed from artificial stone and wood, creating the illusion of an ancient archaeological discovery. It’s just as much fun for families to explore, as it is for teambuilding and corporate functions.
The Maze of the Lost City was added to Sun City Resort in September 2012 and covers a half-acre. The Maze is accessed via a 100 metre-long suspension bridge from the Entertainment Centre, and offers some of the most spectacular views of the resort, particularly of The Palace of the Lost City and the Gary Player Golf Course. When night falls, flaming…
