By 2030 - based on the 12 Pillars of the Global Prosperity Index that currently ranks South Africa 75th out of 167 Countries surveyed
I had no idea that the insights generated from the more than 250 Leaders featured to date are holding the key to solving some of the world's biggest challenges - such as job creation, food security, nation-building and inclusive growth.
from the Leaders interviewed throughout the five seasons, the time has now come to call for
The Inaugural Future of Leadership Summit
that will see Future-minded Leaders present and discuss
In other words, Ideas that have the Potential to propel the country to the Next Level and take South Africa into the 'TOP 10 Best Countries to Live In' by 2030 (currently 75th out of 167 Nations measured (ranked by the Global Prosperity Index)
by calling on 14 Future-minded Leaders to each present their BIG Idea in a
TEDx Talk style presentation
on 24 October 2023
in the 2024 edition of the Future of Leadership Book - and all presenters will be invited to share their BIG Idea as part of the Future Leader Academy Curriculum

and at the same time delivered a Visitor Experience that grew inbound tourism by 31% and business tourism up to 47% (and strengthened the exchange rate to a record high of R7/$ - whilst upgrading infrastructure such as major airports, new roads and even the Gautrain which drew gasps of surprise from many international visitors
The Future Leader Summit is not just another talk shop but a design thinking platform that is geared to making a real difference in the lives of communities
