SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Magnetic Storm's industry role extends beyond selling and installing audio visual equipment and providing event services.  As leaders in this corporate industry, Magnetic Storm finds it important to make a difference and use our expertise by being actively involved in a range of developmental and social projects across a broad spectrum of initiatives. 

The vision we have at Magnetic Storm is to identify and participate in socio economic projects and programmes that help further the development of a two-fold set of initiatives.

The first being an initiative that would benefit with our skills and expertise such as school productions.  Here Magnetic Storm would stage workshops to upskill the students in actually being hands-on and doing all their production requirements themselves!

Magnetic Storm also understands and identifies the need for assistance needed within associations that particularly take care of our little ones that have been abandoned, suffering in any way or needing better educational teaching conditions.

Magnetic Storm aims to make a difference and be mindful that we need to give back to our communities.

As leaders in the industry, Magnetic Storm will strive to set a grandeurs example to bring about positive social change , assisting in transforming and developing growth and positive upliftment through what we are able to provide.  Reflecting the true image of Ubuntu... people, dreams and aspirations.

We love tech, but have we become a slave to it?

At Magnetic Storm, we do tech in a big way, every day. We love what it allows us to do, how people can connect, communicate and collaborate. But in today’s world, we’re always on, always plugged in, hiding behind a black mirror. But for an authentic relationship to happen, we need to connect in person. So are we becoming slaves to technology? Is it making us less happy, less 'us'?
