Suits & Sneakers presents: CEO Series #7 with Stafford Masie (JHB)
WHAT IS THIS EVENT ALL ABOUT?
We are so excited to be hosting the much loved CEO Series once again in 2020! This event is where we sit down and chat with influential CEOs from around South Africa.
This series isn't about profiling how incredible these men and women are, instead we want to understand the trials and tribulations of what it took to get there, the many mistakes they made and ultimately how this could translate into success for you and me.
Our next guest in this series is Stafford Masie. He worked for numerous companies before starting his own consulting and engineering services company. After this was acquired he joined Novell (a multinational enterprise software company), moving to the USA where he spent 6 and a half years working at their head office. He played a significant role in the open source software arena in the USA and later returned to South Africa to assume the role of country manager for Novell South Africa. He then went on to become the CEO for Google Africa and Sub Sahara. Since then he has gone on to start many different businesses including Pebble and finally, he is the current CEO of WeWork in South Africa!
Special thanks to WeWork, QuickBooks, Naked Insurance, and Smile Club for helping us make this event possible! More about them on the night!
