The public violence which played out in South Africa just a few weeks ago and while the country still finds itself grappling for answers over the slow rate of COVID-19 vaccines has again raised the vital question about leadership in both the public and private space.

It’s of course easy to play the blame game, however scapegoating serves little purpose and brings no real solution to the myriad of intractable problems the country must deal with.

Against the backdrop of the rioting and our pandemic-combat strategy, it is crucial for leaders to continually review current approaches and formulate and adopt new strategies.

We live in an unequal society and that makes leadership even more complex and demanding on those who are tasked carrying the baton. The debate over effective leadership is in urgent need of reignition.

Join the Business Day Dialogues in association with Vukani Mngxati CEO of Accenture in Africa) and a panel of high-level guests comprising Martin Kingston, Vice President for BUSA and Dr Leila Fourie, Group CEO of the JSE among others as they look to discuss key questions that beset leaders in a new social, political, and economic environment.
