SA changemakers will share inspiring stories on overcoming at LeadSA conference

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.

This event celebrates individuals who have made a positive contribution to building South Africa and seeks to inspire those that wish to have a similar impact.

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.

This year’s panel of speakers includes; Itumeleng Sekhu, author, media personality, motivational speaker, social activist and entrepreneur and Lorenzo Angus Davids, Community Chest CEO.

This event aims to inspire citizens to be changemakers in their communities, the country and even the world. The conference brings together an exciting mix of motivation, activism, inspiration, innovation, entrepreneurship, music and poetry on one stage.

Every month citizens nominate a person they believe epitomises the qualities of a good leader in their communities and that person becomes a LeadSA hero of the month. Among the 24 heroes from Gauteng and Western Cape province one is acknowledged as an overall hero, a LeadSA Changemaker of the year.
