Join Dr. Du Toit as she describes how South African companies are using CI to improve their competitiveness.


The third in our series of CI Division educational webinar programs, State (and State-of-the-Art) of CI and KM in Emerging Markets: BRICS, focuses on South Africa. Adeline du Toit, extraordinary professor at the University of Pretoria will provide an overview of Competitive Intelligence in South Africa. Because of the country’s unique history, diversity, geography and political landscape, Competitive Intelligence is a contemporary issue. South Africa as a net exporter of strategic minerals and the ‘gateway’ to Africa has an internal environment ideally suited to the use of Competitive Intelligence by companies to gain the competitive edge in a developing domestic economy and a challenging external environment.  CI is one of the fastest growing domains and could enhance the competitiveness of South African companies in the global economy.


Learning objectives:

  1. Understanding the current state of competitive intelligence in South Africa
  2. Understanding the challenges faced by CI practitioners in South Africa

  3. Learn how CI professionals can nurture CI capacity in the industry.


About the speaker:

Adeline du Toit was for ten years head of the Department of Information and Knowledge Management at the University of Johannesburg and developed the first course on CI analyses in South Africa which was offered to industry. For three years, she was the chair of the SCIP chapter in South Africa and received the SCIP Catalyst Award in 2014. She is on the scientific committee of the Competitive Intelligence and Strategic Management Centre in Morocco, on the editorial board of the Journal of Intelligence Studies in Business and has published more than 30 articles on CI in international journals.

"Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense by Dr. Gene Kopelson" presentation at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center

Published on Feb 24, 2017

As Ronald Reagan traveled across the United States campaigning for the highest office in the land, the Governor of California possessed an ace in his hand unmatched by his opponents: the ear and advice of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Reagan was in constant contact with Ike, following his advice at every turn and going so far as to base his entire 1966 campaign on his mentor’s own successful run years before. Eisenhower’s astute view of internal Washington politics, foreign affairs, military matters, and the swirling pool of primary rivals, provided his protégé the fuel he needed to learn, and eventually win, the war of words. In his latest book, Reagan’s 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan’s Emergence as a World Statesman, Dr. Gene Kopelson outlines the story of Reagan’s first presidential bid with an in-depth look behind the scenes. On Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Dr. Kopelson gave a lecture titled, “Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense,” to delve deeper into the relationship between Reagan and his mentor and how it not only shaped Reagan’s future campaigns, but his presidency, as well.

In his lecture at the USAHEC, Dr. Kopelson uses never-before-tapped audio clips, interviews with the original 1968 campaign staff, Eisenhower’s personal diary, and material straight from personal correspondence to show how Eisenhower influenced Reagan’s politics and eventually, his far-reaching presidential policies. From Reagan’s hawkish views on Vietnam to his perspective on the Arab-Israeli situation, his groundbreaking steps with Gorbachev and the Soviets to nuclear defense, Eisenhower and Reagan had a close and personal relationship which changed America’s future.
