Who Is Ndumiso Hadebe

As a poster child of this continent’s future, young, educated, urban and dynamic Ndumiso is intricately linked to the underlying shifts taking place in the world. His interests in strategy, development, the policy environment for growth and the requisite requirements for leadership combined, with his experience in academia, business, youth and policy gives Ndumiso the empirical and theoretical edge over other speakers in his field. More so in that Ndumiso engages in high growth sectors currently constrained in a lackluster economic climate.

In a time where leading, starting or managing an organisation in an environment that is changing and evolving at a pace faster than we have ever seen in human history, and the pertinence of consistently being ahead of the curve could not be more important than at this present moment. His presentations provides any individual with the intent to take charge of the future with the requisite tools of analysis, cultural considerations and the implications on policy in the work that they do and endeavors.
