Project Description

 

Our services to Uber South Africa included advice to the Head of Public Policy as well as support to innovation master classes, workshops on the future of work, responses to gender sensitivity training and deepening understanding of the overall evolution of the South African public transport landscape.

 

It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you Rehana. We have worked together in a number of ways including advisory services on public policy, support to Innovation Master Classes, approaches to gender-related issues as well as understanding of the evolution of the SA public transport landscape.

On all of the above, I find that you have always come with a deep appreciation of the complexities of the environment, you are up to date with the latest developments, and the advice that you provide is thoughtful and relevant for the Uber context. You are also well connected within the South African landscape, and have been very generous with your network.

You have also helped us to further our thinking on important issues like taxi and gender – by providing us with the foundational knowledge, and taking us on a journey to bring our strategy together cohesively and collaboratively.

Perhaps my biggest appreciation is the way in which you constantly challenged our thinking – so that we don’t stay too conservative, and really look at how we need to plug into the ecosystem to maintain and grow our relevance, and improve the experience for riders and drivers.

A big heartfelt THANK YOU for everything you have done for us
