Extractives sector: Our primary audience in this sector includes the mining, quarrying, roading, contracting, concrete and cement industries.

Legal sector: Our primary audience in this sector includes legal practitioners spanning small legal firms and chambers to large corporate law firms. It also includes all of the main courts and tribunals.
