Join us at this launch event where we will host a panel of speakers featured in the book including Trevor Manuel, Prof Nick Binedell, Herman Mashaba, Kabelo Mabalane and Yogavelli Nambiar will discuss elements of the book.

Published in conjunction with GIBS and Pan Macmillan and written by Jennifer Lindsey-Renton, Inspired is the culmination of a series of conversations held with extraordinary South Africans from a variety of walks of life – from the arts to sport, business, media and the judiciary. The interviewees candidly share their motivations, leadership styles, influences, personal inspiration, defining moments and other aspects of their life stories. In this way, the reader is afforded an uplifting glimpse into the lives of these inspired and inspiring individuals.

The foreword of this book is by Trevor Manuel and other featured South Africans include: Carrol Boyes, Robbie Brozin, Edwin Cameron, Bobby Godsell, Ferial Haffajee, Michael Jordaan, Gary Kirsten, Wendy Luhabe, Kabelo Mabalane, Nizenande Machi, Thuli Madonsela, Herman Mashaba, Brian Molefe, Yogavelli Nambiar, Terence Nombembe, Sizwe Nxasana, Francois Pienaar and Maria Ramos.

"It is our hope with Inspired that we will enable South Africans from all walks of life to learn from the stories of the leaders in our midst. Some you may not have heard of (yet), while some will be familiar names, yet each has a common bond in their devotion to this country and their determination to ensure that they leave it a better place for those who follow." Professor Nick Binedell, Dean of GIBS
