Chief Director: Integrated Economic Development Services
Department of Economic Development and Tourism: Western Cape Government (2014)
It is indeed a pleasure for me to write this testimonial for Mr Rae Wolpe and hiscompany Wolpe Strategic Economic Consulting TIA Impact Economix.
Impact Economix was appointed by the Department of Economic Development andTourism to develop the Western Cape Entrepreneurship and Business Development Strategy during 2014.
This project required Mr Wolpe and his team to conduct extensive national as well as international research regarding Enterprise Development. The research conducted by their team was exhaustive and introduced our department to many new developments and trends within the Enterprise Development arena. The development of the strategy was a very interactive process where meetings and workshops on the strategy were conducted with a broad range of stakeholders. Mr Wolpe and his team attended all these meetings and provided us with a report on each meeting.
This culminated in the development of a high quality Western Cape Entrepreneurship and Business Development Strategy which we could use to great effect in the development of our five year strategic plan.
Mr Wolpe was always prepared to meet with us (even after hours) to discuss the development of the strategy and also performed functions at no costs that went beyond the ambit of the agreement. He can be described as extremely professional, very sincere, honest and hardworking. He is of immense value as a team player and will work with great resilience and diligence towards a common goal. The company focus is on integrity and providing the utmost level of customer satisfaction.
We are highly satisfied with the quality of work Mr Wolpe and his company Impact Economix has developed and we would recommend them to any prospective institution or client to assist them with strategy development.
