In line with its belief that young people have the power to bring about change, the day-to-day organising of Brightest Young Minds’ activity has always been implemented by students. This year’s committee consists of 11 Stellenbosch University students, undergrad and post-grad, and from a diversity of backgrounds and fields.
Introducing the Brightest Young Minds Summit Organizing Committee 2010!
Brightest Young Minds is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with ‘The Chosen’, 2010 MTN Business Leading CEO Council. This is a unique annual event where South Africa’s top businessmen and women unite to discuss leadership issues and to mentor those who will succeed them.
The four-day Initiative features seminars, workshops and debates where 24 of today’s top leaders will help to mould 24 Protégés – those who are the leaders of tomorrow. The Protégés will be handpicked from the delegates who are chosen to attend this year’s Brightest Young Minds summit. The Protégés will gain invaluable exposure to those indefinable qualities that turn a good manager into a great leader. They will join debates about morality and ethics, honesty and compassion, and will network with the cream of business society in an invaluable step along their career paths.
Ranked by The Sunday Times as the top event on the business calendar for five consecutive years, the 2010 event is spearheaded by MTN Business as The Headline Partner, supported by further local and global Partner brands – such as Peotona, Badimo Gas, Pam Golding Properties, Hewlett-Packard, Jameson, The Hyatt Regency Oubaai, Heidrick & Struggles, MoneyWeb, GQ, Business Report, SuperSport International, Carte Blanche, Avis, Avis Chauffeur Drive, Clarins, Southern Right, Toast & Co – to mention just a few.
This is the only platform that allows future leaders to engage in constructive dialogue with the current leaders, and to forge invaluable relationships and associations.
