Time: 16:00
Contact Person: thembeka.hlatshwayo@wits.ac.za
Venue: Online Webinar (Zoom)


Wits Business School is pleased to invite you to a conversation between Mills Soko, author of “South Africa and the World – a political journey economy through time” (published October 2021)* and Songezo Zibi, former editor of Business Day.
 
In his new book, Prof Soko looks back over the past 20 years, a profound and defining period in recent history which has witnessed, among others, the accession of China to the WTO, the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the US, the invention of the iPad, the birth of Facebook, the 2008/9 global financial crisis, Brexit and the global coronavirus pandemic which began at the end of 2019. 
 
Soko, Professor of International Business and Strategy at WBS, explores what has not worked in terms of politics, leadership, foreign policy, the economy, the African development trajectory, corporate ethics, international trade, global governance, and the thread which underlies all these issues – the importance of strong, decisive and accountable leadership.
 
This promises to be a highly stimulating and fascinating discussion.
 
We look forward to hosting you.
