Sibongile Booi – is an Eastern Cape born business woman from Butterworth, who studied in Love Dale College and Lesotho. She furthered her academic career at the University of Canada and worked there for 12 years. In  2009 she came back home and then two years later she started a business called Second Office in East London. She returned to the Eastern Cape because she wanted to settle down in an area where everything is found in one place. She stated that “No matter where you are around the world at the end of the day you long for home”. Despite all of that the quality of life I find here is much better than what I had in all other countries that I have been to “says Ms Booi.

In 2011, I started Second Office with an objective of helping people in maintaining their professional image.  What I realised is that people have businesses but they never take time to present that professional image. So I felt that Second Office could be a space where people can come to have their professional greetings and other work related activities. Most of all Second Office helps to provide that back office that a many companies lack.  Second Office allows you to run your business and we run your office that is our slogan, as we also look after your administration side.

And there’s a lot of experience that we can share with businesses that wants to be well rounded and not only to be good at what they do but also have the back office to support them in making sure they are sustainable. She did a pilot project to check whether there is need in the market for Second Office to operate in East London, because there are people who travel for business to East London. Therefore, they will require a professional place where they can discuss serious business deals in private rather than being in coffee shops or restaurants.


Equip yourselves with knowledge and understanding of the industry and the business that you want to start. Your core business must be aligned with your skills and expertise so as to match your services, financials and administration to ensure that the business is sustainable. Also surround yourself with people that will advise and guide you towards the right direction. In business you have to be a student – this means that you have to study your market, your customer and do research about the products and services that you want to offer.


I would like to contribute in business development whereby I conduct entrepreneurship workshops that will assist small businesses through the development phase. These workshops would be based on a checklist of essential needs that each and every business needs from your tax advices to your bookkeeping. As much as one operates his/her own business we cannot ignore what is happening around us. Therefore one has to give back where they can make a difference.

Mercedes Benz introduced a monster stylish and classy economical fuel consumption vehicle with a turbocharged engine and a direct injection. A well designed and execrised heart drive system with 4 cylinder petrol and diesel engines. From one gear to another without any interruptions with optional dual clutch transmission 7G-DCT.
Mercedes Benz – brings the future of motoring on the faster with efficient vehicles and production process that wastes fewer and fewer resouces. Its blue technology engine reduces the nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gases by up to 90%, while the natural-gas drive NGT drastically reducess emissions and fuel costs.
The sportiness of the car is as far as the eye can see; the AMG front apron with black flics and the AMG radiator grille with a twin louvre move impressively into the field of vision. Elements painted grey titanium grey matt in the front and rear apron plus side sill panels lend the dynamic design of the vehicle.
The pronounced arrow-shaped front section and expressive radiator grille give the A-Class both an air of self-confidence and a decidedly energetic look. The flanks, with two striking structural lines, and the powerfully muscular rear wings give a feeling of forwards thrust even when the car is at a standstill.The coupé-like side line with the curved roof, beltline rising towards the rear and long, narrow, glass area emphasises the sporty appearance of the new A-Class. The B-pillar is covered by the “frame under glass” design of the door.The distinctly wide rear end with horizontal structuring exudes power and athleticism. This is thanks to the bicolour tail lamps, which extend well into the sides of the vehicle. At night an innovative lighting design gives the new A-Class an exciting aura.
