I don't recommend much as a rule because everyone's taste is different and it is seen to be a bit of a sales pitch but once a year Discovery puts together a one day summit where they find some of the worlds most topical thought leaders and bring them to SA speak.
This year the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit will be taking place in Johannesburg at Sandton Convention Centre on Wednesday, 21 September 2011. Speakers include Dr Nouriel Roubini, Ricardo Semler, Chris Anderson, Dan Ariely, Graça Machel, Maria Ramos, and Al Gore, a huge line up I am sure you will agree.
I have been to the previous 2 summits and I would not miss this one. Check out www.theleadershipsummit.co.za
