The World’s Leading Business Thinkers at the 2010 Leadership Summit

Private Property South Africa

Discovery Invest will once again bring to South Africa some of the world’s most impressive business minds, to share their secrets and insights, at the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit on 11 August 2010 at the Sandton Convention Centre. Speakers include revered businessmen Johann Rupert and Adrian Gore and Dr. Mamphela Ramphele, renowned SA businesswoman and thought leader. Considered the guru of the global financial meltdown, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, bestselling author of Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness, will enlighten audiences with his profound insights in how to design ways to live in a world we don't quite understand. Stephen Dubner co-author Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics – among the decade’s top ten best-selling books – promises through his wry humour and strong storytelling to illustrate how economics, at its root is about incentives; and how, if you understand the incentives that lead a schoolteacher to cheat, you can understand what caused the sub-prime mortgage crisis. It has also been recently confirmed that Rudy Giulani will join the ranks of the highly-respected speakers who will present at this year’s premier leadership event. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City, started his career at the office of the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, rising quickly through the ranks. After 2 mayoral terms, and his widely lauded handling of the September 11 attacks in 2001, Rudy Giuliani founded Giuliani Partners, a leader in emergency preparedness, public safety, leadership during crises, and financial management. Mayor Giuliani is also a Partner in the law firm of Bracewell & Giuliani LLP. Herschel Mayers, CEO of Discovery Invest said: “In a fast-paced global economy, information is critical to enabling sound business decisions. The Discovery Invest Leadership Summit showcases brilliant minds, giving the South African business community access to leading-edge leadership thinking.” To find out more or book your place at this must-see event go to: and for bookings call 0861 000 749 or email
