The Business Book Club presents: VUSI
NxtLevel™ Business Coach, international award-winning Mentor and Facilitator and Speaker, Jacques Velleman, will be interviewing Vusi Thembekwayo again at The Business Book Club, but this time about his second book: VUSI.
We hosted Vusi in 2018 on his first book, The Magna Carta of Exponentiality and we have been looking forward to his next one.
Vusi Thembekwayo is a disruptor.
He is a Top public speaker and Dragons' Den judge. Vusi was running a R400m division in a multinational firm by the age of 25. Today he is one of the youngest directors of a JSE-listed company and is the CEO of a boutique investment and advisory firm. He also serves on several boards. Having graced the covers of Entrepreneur Magazine, with features on Forbes and Inc500, his social media engagement often mirrors that of a Rockstar.
Vusi is a consummate speaking professional! On and off stage. He doesn’t just talk business – he lives it. For real, he walks, talks and breathes it! You see he does more than simply inspire revolution, he’s the guy that initiates it.
He has been the catalyst for change in businesses across the globe through expertise in strategy, leadership and sales.
A staggering 21 global cities have experienced Vusi. That’s what you get when you talk about things that make perfect sense.
Vusi, the book, is an inspiring journey from the township to the top echelons of South African business, to becoming one of the youngest directors of a listed company and CEO of a boutique investment firm. As a Dragons' Den judge and a sought after public speaker across the globe, Vusi doesn't just talk business – he lives it.
Now you can learn the secret of his success and how to shape your own destiny.
‘I have learned the truth about the world: that it isn’t as round as a tennis ball, and it isn’t shaped like itself. It is shaped the way we shape it, according to the way we see it, the way we mould it to our ambitions and our destiny.’ ~Vusi Thembekwayo
About The Business Book Club:
The Business Book Club was founded with the purpose to share knowledge in a business context. Knowledge is the start of change, an inevitable process of business (and life), and one can obtain it through various means. Books are our favourite way and what better than to have a conversation with the author. Sharing knowledge through questions and answers helps us understand how each of us can affect change in a positive way.
At our monthly meetings, we invite an author to showcase their book and share their knowledge. Through conversations with the author, we grow our leadership capability by understanding how we can change our business environments.
We do not charge an entry fee to our events but ask that a pre-loved business or educational book is donated. These books are collected and then donated to a needy library or community in less privileged areas. We currently donate books to The Signature Library, Soweto, and are continuously looking at alternative libraries/ communities who would benefit from The Business Book Club members' donations.
ENTRANCE: A pre-loved book for donation.
Please note: because we do not charge for this event, there might be a chance that it will be full when you arrive, so please arrive early to get a good seat. If all the seats are taken, you are more than welcome to stand if space allows and still enjoy the event.
