The Talks4Success is an initiative by Nedbank to get young people across the country to showcase their entrepreneurial skills alongside other young entrepreneurs in Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria.
This campaigns also allows young people the opportunity to mingle with some of South Africa’s innovators and celebrities called “Igniters” such as entertainer, businessman and author of Leadership2020 DJ Sbu, IT company owner Zibusiso Mkhwanazi, and multi-award winning singer Lira among many others who each have a different perspective on life, career and success.
Nedbank held their first Talks4Success at The Alex Theater in Braamfontein with South Africa’s first rocket fuel rockstar Siya Xuza who is a graduate of the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in Cambridge, Massachusetts as the keynote speaker who’s great sense of humor and amazing backstory wowed the crowd.
Talks4Success is another milestone in Nedbank’s greater vision of championing young people who “Make Things Happen”, as their slogan goes, among their peers & their communities.
The talks encompass registration-based guidance sessions with an array of inspirational topics which include future and career prospects with experts, mentors and leaders.
The next #Talks4success events are scheduled for:
The Fugard Theater Cape Town – 29 July 2014
The State Theater Pretoria – 5 August 2014
