Tsogo Sun Book-a-Guesthouse

This programme provides proactive meaningful training and support to emerging guesthouse entrepreneurs in the spirit of industry empowerment and transformation. What started as a small pilot project to empower five guesthouses in Soweto has grown into a national initiative with more than sixty members throughout South Africa and continues to grow. It is Tsogo Sun's flagship enterprise development programme (EDP). Willem S Eksteen was part of the founding team of the Book-a-Guesthouse programme and it remains close to his heart.

The Go-Giver

This is a little story about a powerful business idea by Bob Burgh and David Mann – a book that you MUST read! Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a heart-warming and inspiring tale that brings new relevance to the old proverb "give and you shall receive" (but definitely not a soppy read!). Gurus like Stephen Covey and David Bach think it is the latest best thing to hit the bookshelves! Willem S Eksteen, founder of Stone, is a listed Walking Go-Giver ambassador.
