About this event

Ridwan Peer is the Co-Founder and CEO of The Blinds Syndicate and a well known serial entrepreneur in Durban. The Blinds Syndicate started as an experiment in syndicate buying and has grown into a company that sells blinds all over South Africa and in surrounding countries.

The Blinds Syndicate started with just seven people and now employs more than 150! Peer has been able to grow his sales fourfold — much of it following operational productivity interventions that he put in place. One way he does this is to divide their own workplaces into various teams to compete against one another

Peer has also given talks to a number of other businesses about the programme and productivity improvements. Recently a German company, impressed by Peer's view on the philosophy of productivity made him exclusive distributor of of their product in the country and considers the company the most productive in the world.

The Blinds Syndicate won the award as the most productive company in KZN and the second most productive in South Africa.
