South African heroes will share their uplifting stories about overcoming obstacles at this year's LeadSA Changemakers Conference.
The 4th Lead SA Changemakers conference will take place on Saturday 20th October at GIBS in Illovo, Johannesburg.

The theme for this year’s event is ‘Overcoming’, where Changemakers will profile individuals who have overcome obstacles to achieve their goals and be the best version of themselves.
“LeadSA Changemakers returns for the fourth iteration of the event which celebrates meaningful discourse and highlighting individuals who bring about positive transformation. We look forward to unpacking the 2018 event theme ‘Overcoming’. Primedia Broadcasting’s very own Xolani Gwala will be sharing his story amongst many other notable speakers who have brought about change in our communities”, said Karl Gostner, Primedia Broadcasting Chief Operating Officer and LeadSA Champion.
