of life and legacy…

“THE WAY WE MADE PEOPLE FEEL IS HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE - AND NOTORIOUSLY CHANGEABLE - AND NO AMOUNT OF PROPAGANDA CAN PERSUADE OR DISSUADE OTHERS TO VIEW US IN A PARTICULAR WAY.” Following the sad passing of uMam’uWinnie Madikizela-Mandela at the beginning of April, much was said about the legacy she leaves behind. The word “complex” was used repeatedly to describe her, supposedly to stress that hers was a multi-layered story. I personally found it irritating: after all, whose life isn’t complex, multi-layered, nuanced and occasionally contradictory? We also all have aspects of our pasts we’d rather not parade in public – so it’s curious that people feel the need to punctuate descriptions of eminent individuals’ lives with the complexity caveat.In my experience, history is ultimately the most accurate judge…

public speaking – your power tool

Simon T Bailey has a free ebook for you. Simply visit: simontbailey.com to submit your email address and he’ll send it to you. (GALLO IMAGES/GETTY IMAGES/ALAMY) ANYBODY WHO’S DONE ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT IN THE WORLD HAD TO GIVE A SPEECH, PUT TOGETHER A PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT OR DO INTERVIEWS. When I was preparing for my TEDx talk, I reached out to Dr Marceta Reilly, who co-authored the book on which the speech was based. I wanted her insights from her position within the education space regarding which anecdotes, examples and data would best fit the TEDx audience.I also reached out to some colleagues who weren’t familiar with the world of education, but whom I respected, for feedback. I knew the story I had to tell needed to be compelling to both…

fossilising leadership

LUKHANYO VANGQA is a writer and analyst. He’s also the founder and convenor of the Technical & Vocational Education & Training (TVET) Debate Championships. (GALLO IMAGES/GETTY IMAGES/ALAMY) Former President Jacob Zuma has been in the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ANC for 40 years – longer than the entire lifetime of the current French President. And this extraordinarily long service in a leadership structure isn’t peculiar to Zuma. Minister of Energy Jeff Radebe has been in every Cabinet since 1994, serving under five different Presidents, the United Democratic Movement’s Bantu Holomisa has been President of that organisation for over 21 years, the Inkatha Freedom Party’s octogenarian leader Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi has been party President since 1975, spending an unbelievable 43 years at the helm and the Freedom Front…

boardroom activist

(GALLOIMAGES/GETTYIMAGES/IALAMY) WITH GOOD HABITS AND DECISIVENESS, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. Having worked in the financial services industry as a financial planner for more than 20 years, I have the opportunity to effect real change. Today I serve as an advisor to trade unions, the ANC, Sars, Shell and Goodyear, and with 54 other corporates operating on the African continent. I’ve had the privilege of being mentored by some of the best technical minds of our industry and was employed for several years by some of the largest financial service brands here too. In that time I learnt critical skills, but – most importantly – I learnt how to protect my clients.It’s disappointing that, despite being a regulated market, the biggest brands don’t live the value systems they put on paper. My…
