The one day exhibition show (The Business Open Day) hosted by the Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) yesterday gave its stakeholders a platform to market their brands as well as imparting necessary knowledge to clients.
Econet Wireless brand ambassador in Masvingo Tinashe Zenda said the exhibition held under a theme “Come Partner With Us” has particularly enabled the company to exhibit its Ecoshool promotion to students
“At the moment more than 50 students have come to our stand and applied for the Ecoschool tablets. This day made possible by Great Zimbabwe University is a real prospect to sell our brand,” he said.
He also took time to explain how useful Ecoschool is to students stressing that it aims at assisting students in accessing literature which is of use in their studies.
The Acting Director of Information and Public Relations at the university Mr Anderson Tawanda Chipatiso said the show was a platform not only for companies to market themselves but served to give career guidance to students who will soon go out for attachment as well.
“This is not for companies only. As students are visiting various stands they are interacting with companies’ representatives and get exposed to the expectations of each company when they go out for attachment,” he said.
“They get to know where exactly should they be, doing what,” added Chipatiso.

Linda Mapfaka one of the students who visited the stands said she benefited a lot especially when she visited stands for the Forest Commission and Nyaradzo Funeral Assurance Company since she learnt things that are essential in her studies.
“I have benefited a lot especially when I was told much about Nyaradzo’s project of planting trees. I strongly support their stance of preserving environment.”
Mapfaka is studying an Honours Degree in Geography and Environmental Science at the university.local
