Leadership Reset: Leading through the emerging future

When: March 24, 2021

Where: Online

In 2021, it is imperative that leaders have the skills required to guide their organisations through times of uncertainty. How might we grow, adapt and change as leaders to successfully navigate into the future? Our ‘Leadership Reset’ one day summit, fundraising for MicroLoan, will inspire leaders to explore this question.

The event will help you to think big and become a leader that others want to follow. Our panel discussions and master classes will bring together entrepreneurs, business leaders and leadership coaches. The audience will be part of a conversation with the pioneers who are leading the change.

Your participation in this event will not only be educational, but it will give you the exclusive opportunity to connect with the elite of entrepreneurial and business communities. All funds raised will support MicroLoan Foundation, a charity that holds commitment to sustainable leadership and gender equality at the forefront of their mission in sub-Saharan Africa, giving small loans and business training to female entrepreneurs facing extreme poverty.
