The focus for Leaderex 2018 is digital transformation and by association, technologies such as the internet of things (IoT), blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI), which will shape discussions around preparing for a digital future.
Building on its debut of Leaderex in 2015, the organisers, Leader.co.za, in association with the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and leading think tanks, will host 250 masterclasses on key priority areas to drive digital transformation, including agile leadership, innovation, fintech and blockchain, AI, IoT, ecommerce and the future of work at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg on 4 September 2018.
“Our programme has been designed around peer-based learning, allowing participants to gain practical knowledge from the trenches, engage with the best in the business, and thrive in a disrupted world,” says Leader.co.za.
Over 500 CEOs and industry leaders will share actionable insights and advice on the day, representing one of the largest collaborations of its kind in the country.

Delegates will have the opportunity to connect with incubators, accelerators and start-up platforms, explore MBA programmes and business schools, and participate in one-on-one sessions with respected coaches and consultants.
South Africa’s lack of a savings culture will be another talking point, and investment vehicles, from tax-free savings to ETFs, will be thoroughly unpacked.
“We are pleased to be working with Leaderex again this year because we have seen the impact that the event has had since inception,” adds Mpho Ledwaba, head of marketing at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).
For executives and entrepreneurs looking to unlock value through new technologies and ways of thinking, Leaderex 2018 represents a highlight on the business calendar.
