Almost time for the 5th GIBS Executive Breakfast
The Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), East Coast Radio and Trade and Investment, KwaZulu-Natal (TIKZN), have banded together to produce what is quickly becoming one of the most sought after business breakfasts in the province.
Durban’s business fraternity will once again have access to high profile speakers, like the CEO’s of Transnet and the Business Results Group, at this year’s GIBS Executive Breakfast in March.
Already a popular calendar event within the Durban business community, the annual breakfast boasts some of the most successful business-minded people all under one roof. “We are excited about the theme this year, ‘Leading with Impact’ which will prove to be a beneficial tool for all business men and women. In this current economic climate every business big or small could benefit from our hand picked speakers wealth of knowledge. Each speaker will share their invaluable knowledge on business growth and leadership skills.” said Trish Taylor, General Manager of East Coast Radio.
With a number of guest speakers from numerous business fields who will give tips and strategies on how to better manage your business, there should be something for all business owners.
Nicola Tyler, CEO of Business Results Group, who is known for her highly acclaimed strategic planning and thinking workshops, will host the event.
Dean of GIBS, Professor Nick Binedell whose area of expertise lies in the field of business strategy, will share his knowledge on Strategic Leadership. Although his academic and consulting work is predominantly in South Africa, it does include work in the United States, Europe and Australia.
Transnet CEO, Brian Molefe, will open the presentations with his highly anticipated speech on Leading with Impact. Molefe has received several awards for his role in the economy, particularly in the advancement of black participation.
Bringing a strong international strategy presentation to the program is Norman Chorn, academic, practitioner and visiting faculty member from GIBS. Chorn will demonstrate how Durban business owners can plan the future of their business through designing innovative organizations. He will also show them how to incorporate strong and positive leadership styles for sustainable growth of their business.
Motivational speaker, Buhle Dlamini, will rally Breakfast goers into action by proving that anything is possible. Born and raised in the rural KZN village of Hlabisa, Dlamini has risen above and beaten the odds to become one of the top South Africans in People and Social Development today by proving himself in the youth development field, business, public speaking, media and social entrepreneurship.
