The summit will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre on 21 September 2011.

This year’s summit is themed ‘Lead by Examples’ and is expected to be one more sell-out, says CEO of Discovery Invest, Herschel Mayers.

“The forum presents an invaluable chance for first-hand interaction with global leaders who have their fingers on the pulse of macro-economic and management problems – and in today’s fluid company environment, understanding and info is a lot more effective and a lot more crucial than ever just before. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience such ground-breaking opinions of this calibre in South Africa.”
