This Summit will address and include leaders drawn from 3 generations: current leaders and CEOs, Rising Stars (28-40 yrs) recognised through our programme over the past 5 years and the top 100 students from across the country recognized by our inaugural GradStar programme. Discussing past experience and vision for the future, this Summit aims to facilitate knowledge sharing from existing leaders to future leaders yet also highlight ‘reverse sharing’ where the younger generations give their views and opinions on collaboration and the future for South Africa.
