On March 20, hundreds of Africa’s inspirational Millenials couldn’t have chosen a better place to be than at the 7th annual Old Mutual Tomorrow’s Leaders Convention. Held at Johannesburg’s Emperor’s Palace, the Tomorrow’s Leaders Convention ensured that these future leaders left with an even greater drive to shake organisational norms and achieve more success.
Once again Who’s Who SA had the privilege of attending the event.
Among the impressive list of speakers was Maggs on Media TV host, Jeremy Maggs who was the Master of Ceremonies, Managing Director of Old Mutual Mass Foundation Cluster, Bongani Madikiza and Tumelo Mothtoane, SABC 1’s news anchor.
Sharing some riveting stories and stirring up some serious leadership spark was the DJ Sbu‘s Leadership 2020 team. Jackie Phamotse, Chief Executive Officer of Brand Fanatics and Mofaya Beverages Distributor encouraged the future leaders to have no boundaries and to do anything in their power to achieve what they feel needs to be done.
Speaking about Shattered Innocence, her urban lifestyle book, Phamotse said, “I wrote this book to ensure that whatever challenges we have, whether social problems or an educational scares, we deal with those issues. If you do not understand where you’re going, you’re not going to be a leader,” she asserted.
Sitting among the famous faces panel discussion, president of the South African Football Association (SAFA), Danny Jordaan advised the young leaders to create opportunities not only for themselves, but also for society. Younger South African entertainment personalities, including Pearl Thusi, Maps Maponyane and Jimmy Nevis, also shared some wise words of wisdom from their professional experiences, encouraging the attendees to grab the opportunities presented to them.
