In this podcast, I recount a pivotal turning point in my journey within the CSI industry in South Africa. After an enlightening conversation with a client, my perspective was strengthened, fueling my drive to continue on my mission. I’ve gained a new appreciation for the weighty responsibility of managing social assets, and a book recommendation titled “The Manifesto for a Moral Revolution” proved to be a catalyst for my transformed outlook.
Drawing on the biblical story of the Israelites seeking the Promised Land, I draw parallels to the present-day CSI industry in South Africa, emphasizing the need for a mindset shift. I introduce a bold 25-year plan called “Towards 2050”, which aims to uplift communities and challenge outdated beliefs.
This podcast comes with a write-up that underscores the importance of collaborating with like-minded individuals and organizations who share a commitment to genuine transformation. I conclude by stressing the significance of breaking free from outdated thinking, embracing authentic change, and working collectively to create a brighter future for South Africa.
