The Group CEO for Cumii, Mr. Norman Moyo was invited to speak at the phenomenal Mandela Washington Fellowship Summit for 2017 in Washington DC where he shared the floor with other great leaders like Dr. Helene Gayle and Mr. Tony Elumelu.
The Summit held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, was attended by both African and American leaders, young African students and organisations.
The Mandela Washington Fellowship is a life changing initiative that is growing global thought leadership across continents and investing in the next generation of African leaders.
In Mr Norman Moyo’s address, he shared thoughts from his book Rumble in the Jungle that delves into leadership from an African perspective. He also spoke of his work experience in Africa and how true leadership stems from the top blended with values of integrity and leaving a lasting legacy.
For Mr Moyo, “If a few individuals can cause impact on a corporate level, it can be done on a national level and provide transformation.”
The Mandela Washington Fellowship Summit has given African leaders a platform to speak to the young leaders of tomorrow and discuss business trends, behaviour change on a corporate and national level and create solutions for the growing global challenges in Africa and the world.
