The public violence that played out in SA just a few weeks ago and the search for answers over the slow rate of Covid-19 vaccinations have again raised questions about leadership in both the public and private space.

Scapegoating serves little purpose and brings no real solution to the myriad intractable problems the country must address. Leaders must continually review current approaches and formulate and adopt new strategies.

We live in an unequal society and that makes leadership demands even more complex for those tasked with carrying the baton. The debate over effective leadership is in urgent need of reignition.

Join the Business Day Dialogues in association with Vukani Mngxati (CEO of Accenture in Africa) and a panel of high-level guests such as Martin Kingston, vice-president of Business Unity SA, and Dr Leila Fourie, group CEO of the JSE, among others as they discuss questions that beset our leaders in a new social, political and economic environment, such as:

  • Are there new ways to lead?
  • What fresh thinking is needed?
  • How does one lead in times of crisis?
  • How are effective co-operative alliances built? and
  • How can more people be trained and given a seat at the leadership table?
