Leaderex, Africa’s largest gathering of business leaders, professionals and entrepreneurs, returns Johannesburg next month.
Building on a successful debut in 2015, the organisers, Leader.co.za, in association with the JSE and leading think tanks, will host 250 masterclasses at Sandton Convention Centre on September 4.
It will explore Digital Transformation, including agile leadership, innovation, fintech and Blockchain, AI, IoT, e-commerce and the future of work.
“Our programme has been designed around peer-based learning, allowing participants to gain practical knowledge from the trenches, engage with the best in the business, and thrive in a disrupted world,” said Leader.co.za
More than 500 CEOs and industry leaders will share actionable insights and advice on the day, representing one of the largest collaborations of its kind in the country.
Delegates will have the opportunity to connect with incubators, accelerators and start-up platforms, explore MBA programmes and business schools and participate in one-on-one sessions with respected coaches and consultants.
South Africa’s lack of a savings culture will be another talking point, and investment vehicles, from tax-free savings to ETFs, will be thoroughly unpacked.
“We are pleased to be working with Leaderex again this year because we have seen the impact that the event has had since inception,” added Mpho Ledwaba, Head of Marketing at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).
