Are You Joining Us?

It's Siya Mapoko here - author of The Best Advice I Ever Got and Conversations with JSE AltX entrepreneurs. On 4th November I'll be hosting and having on-stage conversations with 3 business leaders in Melrose Arch. This exclusive gathering will be attended by 100 guests - mostly corporate professionals and entrepreneurs.  

The 3 leaders I'll be talking to have accomplished a lot in their fields. The first leader worked behind the scenes for many years ensuring the growth of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) - former Head of Marketing and Business Developent. The second is a dynamic lady who bought 45% of the iconic global brand RE/MAX Properties in Southern Africa. The third guest started his company as a young graduate with R20K overdraft and turned it into a business that todate has done over a Billion Rand in transactions. 

I've asked these leaders to ONLY share what they believe is "the best advice worth giving". They promised to share with the group some of their best ideas.  

If you decide to join us, you'll also have a chance to ask them anything you like.
