Vision 2030

Tomorrow's leaders

The annual Tomorrow's Leaders Convention brings together the leaders of tomorrow for one day in order to share insights of the leaders of today. This enables them to establish relationships among themselves. These future leaders, or Candidates, are not selected by us: they are nominated by their own companies.
The 2013 edition – the sixth convention – will be focusing on Vision 2030 recently presented by the National Planning Commission. The National Development Plan 2030 is an inspirational document that calls on all South Africans to participate in making the future work.
The text convinces us that by combining the spirit of the post 1994 Rainbow Nation with the hard lessons of experience, it is well within the capability of South Africa to further develop the process. We should be drawing on the energies of our people in order to grow an inclusive economy, build capabilities, enhance the capacity of the state, and promote leadership and partnerships throughout society. If we succeed in doing this, the goal of eliminating poverty and reducing inequality by 2030 will be tangible and within our grasp.
However, unless all South Africans buy into Vision 2030, the inspirational words contained within NDP 2030 will remain merely that. As the text itself explicitly states, without the participation of society as a whole, the plan to 'accelerate progress, deepen democracy and build a more inclusive society' will flounder.

The convention is an ideal platform to engage with business leadership from across the economic spectrum. The format of the convention allows for high level interaction with all participants. A highlight of the convention is the sector-related breakaway sessions. These cover up to 10 key sectors of South Africa's economy. The resultant report is titled the "Blueprint for Corporate South Africa".
The Convention will also be focusing on the role of women in the modern business world. It is only through the inclusion of the entire work force that we will reach our goals of eradicating poverty and strengthening our economy. 
I invite you to nominate your organisations Tomorrow’s Leaders today!
