A new year to Think Big: PSG’s webinar series returns with top speakers

20 Jan 2021 0

PSG is pleased to announce that it will continue with its successful Think Big webinar series, which launched last year. The 2021 series kicks off on 26 January. As the country continues to battle uncertainty around restrictions, curfews and whatever unknowns might come next in the Covid-19 journey, there is much to consider around the impact on all local and global communities, economies, and many spheres of modern life. “Feedback on our 2020 series was very positive and prompted us to continue to have these inspiring, important conversations as we all prepare to tackle the year ahead,” says PSG’s Chief Marketing Officer, Tracy Hirst.

Where is South Africa heading?

Chairperson of the Board and Head of African Futures & Innovation, Jakkie Cilliers will kick off this year’s exciting line-up. Cilliers, a respected futurist, analyst, author and commentator, will share his insights on what to expect in 2021, and (believe it or not) what positives to take from 2020. 

Business unusual

Dr Rutendo Hwindingwi joins the series on the future of Pan-African business growth and sustainability. Afro-realist Rutendo reveals the opportunities in Africa and how South African business owners can embrace them. This session is a must for any business owner (or budding entrepreneur) hoping to harness what the continent has to offer. 

Broadcasting veteran Tim Modise will bring a fresh perspective to the national budget speech against a backdrop of unemployment and prolonged uncertainty. Can business and government work together to set South Africa on the road to prosperity despite the challenges?

Peeking into politics

Moeletsi Mbeki returns as a speaker, having featured in the series in 2020. Political analyst, author and entrepreneur, Mbeki will update us on South Africa’s economic and political climate.

On 23 March, renowned political commentator, newspaper columnist and author, Justice Malala, will delve deeper into how he sees the future of South Africa shaping up. Known for his sharp insights into our country’s possibilities and many challenges, Justice will share how South Africa can get on the right path to unlock its true potential. 

Bruce Whitfield returns as the interviewer asking the tough questions. 

Don’t miss out on the valuable insights that are to be gained from this impressive round of bigger picture thinkers.
