VANDERBIJLPARK. – The North West University’s annual Leadership Summit, in collaboration with the Ukuvulu Foundation and Studio55 Events and Production, is set to take place on August 10 from 8:30 until 16:00 at the Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg.
The NWU Leadership Summit brings together some of South Africa’s most brilliant business and public sector minds to share their leadership insights.
This year’s discussion theme will centre around “Thriving during uncertainty and complexity – a leadership challenge.”
The distinguished speakers will also focus on leadership and economic development.
This year’s line up of high level speakers includes, among others, Dr Adrian Saville, who serves as Chief Strategist for Citadel Asset Management and Cannon Asset Managers; Bonang Francis Mohale, former Vice President Upstream and Chairman of Shell South Africa;
Prof Dan Kgwadi, Vice Chancellor of the North-West University (NWU) and Sazini Mojapelo, Group Head of Corporate Citizenship at Barclays Africa.
According to Mr Warren Makgowe, Director: Stakeholder Relations of the North-West University, the aim of the NWU Leadership Summit is to create a platform from which intellectual capital can be shared and, by doing so, contribute towards sustainable and innovative leadership in business, government and civil society
. By means of the summit, individuals will be afforded the invaluable opportunity for first-hand interaction with other leaders who have their fingers on the pulse of economic and management issues. In today’s fast-paced business environment, knowledge sharing is of utmost importance.
The vision of the summit is to support sustainable future, growth, and development of South Africa and Africa by exploring best-practices, ideas, and lessons from visionary, responsible, and forward-thinking leaders.
Proceeds from the summit will go to the Ukuvula Foundation, a charitable not-for-profit organisation that was established to coordinate and fund social development initiatives. The foundation’s vision of “making a difference through shared learning, development and empowering people” is underscored by the fact that most of the assistance granted is in the form of bursaries for tertiary education. Students of the North-West University will also benefit from this initiative.
