Thought Leaders Symposium for Emerging Leaders, 9th October, 2014

Dear colleagues, I know you’re as passionate about leadership development as I am. Perhaps one of the greatest challenges facing South Africa today is the need for a new generation of highly skilled and ethical leaders. Leaders who can take key national positions in future, and lead well, while maintaining a sound ethical core.

To address this need, GIBS has partnered with the TISO Foundation (a subsidiary of the Kagiso Group) to host an annual Thought Leaders Symposium for Emerging Leaders. The symposium will take place on the 9th October 2014. Applicants will be drawn from universities, business, government and civil society (Faith Groups & NGOs).

Please take a moment and consider who in your network is an emerging leader, in their twenties or early thirties, that ought to be part of this initiative. Delegates will hear from and interact with some of the top commentators and leaders in South Africa.

You are welcome to mail me atoosthuizenm for more information or to apply.

Founded in 2000, the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) is an internationally accredited business school, based in Johannesburg, South Africa’s economic hub. As the business school for business, we focus on general management in dynamic markets to significantly improve individual and organisational performance, primarily in the South African environment, through the provision of high quality business and management education. In May 2014 the annual UK Financial Times Executive Education rankings, a global benchmark for providers of executive education, once again ranked GIBS as the top South African and African business school. This is the eleventh year running that GIBS has been ranked among the top business schools worldwide. In October 2013 the GIBS MBA was ranked among the top 100 business schools globally in the prestigious Financial Times Executive MBA Rankings. Ranked in 70th position, GIBS is the only business school in Africa to appear in this ranking.
