This one-day summit brings together some of the most innovative and forward-thinking local and international business people, including Sir Richard Branson, Malcolm Gladwell, Adrian Gore, Shaun Tomson, Wendy Luhabe, Mathews Phosa and Ronnie Apteker.
The speakers will discuss cutting-edge approaches to leadership and share their insights into leadership tactics of the future, in an effort to cultivate South Africa's next generation of maverick thinkers.
Discovery's strong business orientation and efforts to promote a positive, sustainable, South Africa made it the natural choice as primary sponsor of this prestigious event.

“As an organisation, we are optimistic about the future of our country and the entrepreneurial opportunities that exist within it. It is in this spirit that we are proud to announce the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit, which we see as an investment in enhancing the quality of leadership in South Africa,” says Hylton Kallner, chief marketing officer of Discovery.

Carlson has previously been involved with, amongst other things, national satellite broadcast events at venues across South Africa with renowned speakers such as Jack Welch, Lance Armstrong and Robert Kiyosaki.More live events planned
