#ChangeMakers2018
4th annual LeadSA Changemakers inspired and uplifted all who attended.

The 4th Lead SA Changemakers conference took place at GIBS in Illovo, Johannesburg this past weekend.

The event which celebrates active citizenry was attended by more than one hundred delegates including big business, CSI groups, NGO’s and active citizens. Those attending left the event feeling inspired to bring about positive change in their communities.

This year’s panel of speakers discussed the theme ‘Overcoming’.

Panelists included; keynote speaker Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, inventor and Technovera founder Neo Hutiri, journalist, television presenter and radio personality Xolani Gwala, author, media personality, motivational speaker, social activist and entrepreneur, Itumeleng Sekhu, Community Chest CEO, Lorenzo Angus Davids, multi-award-winning director, coach and shamanic facilitator Heinrich Reisenhofer plus co-founder and CEO of Nova-Pioneer Education Group, Chinezi Chijioke.

Highlights from the day’s presentations included a talk by 702 presenter Xolani Gwala who discussed his brave battle with cancer.

The keynote address by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo left the audience enthralled resulting in a roaring applause and standing ovation.

LeadSA Changemakers embodies the LeadSA brand pillars, supporting people who are leading SA, inspiring people to lead SA and enabling more people to lead SA. Every year LeadSA recognizes a Changemaker that perfectly demonstrates actively citizenry and courage to affect positive change in South Africa. Previous award recipients included ex public protector Thuli Madonsela and Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng. This year we earmarked the entire Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises. These Changemakers have been committed to building a society defined by integrity and accountability

Gostner added: “We support, inspire and enable leaders who stand for something and were proud to handover the award to Zukiswa Rantho on behalf of the Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises.”

The National Lead SA Hero of the Year was announced with Isaac Boshomane, owner of Kgabo Cars receiving the accolade.

Boshomane turned his township auto mechanic workshop into a training centre and gave students in his community practical skills that allowed them to get national qualifications. He successfully transferred skills to sixty students who are now fully qualified mechanics.

Kgabo Cars received R45000.00 from Stratum Cares (A division of Stratum Benefits) to help Isaac continue his work in his community.
