FDA DATABASE "DETOXED"

FDA PARTNERS ANNUAL DINNER DANCE


FDA DATABASE "DETOXED"
Over the last few weeks we have been gently 'cleaning out' the FDA DATABASE - removing some "deadwood" and monitoring returned emails. We have been deleting addresses "unable to deliver" while sidelining the large amount of emails rejected due to mailboxes that are full!

We are seriously contemplating organising a FDA NETWORKING ROAD SHOW with the topic - "Understanding Outlook Express and Email Communication as a tool for Networking"

Our current 'dated' database now stands at 5157 contacts and FDA Partners worldwide!


OECD FORUM - NEW DELHI INDIA
I will be leaving for India, to attend the OECD Global Forum on International Investment in New Delhi, on Sunday 17 October 2004.

The FOUNDATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA would like to express its sincere appreciation to Anil Govind, from GG Group in Durban, South Africa for making made this possible through the generous contribution of my air ticket to India and back.
The OECD has kindly contributed towards my accommodation!

The GG Group of Companies is a proud FDA PLATINUM AFRICA SUPPORTER - see:

Detail on the outcome of this important international forum will be made available on my return on 26 October 2004 - I will stand Africa proud!
