Saturday 3 June, 16h00 | The Breakthrough Mindset – breaking new grounds through innovation and motivation
Lebo Gunguluza is an influential innovator and the ultimate “breakthrough entrepreneur”. The man behind Sunday World’s Shwashwi, the gossip sensation that is one of the most recognised media brands in South Africa, has overcome odds and broken boundaries by starting a multi-million rand empire without funding, and by creating a revolutionary organisation with a group of successful entrepreneurs to help aspiring township and rural entrepreneurs start and grow successful businesses.
Today Gunguluza heads up the GEM Group of Companies, an integrated media, hospitality, and communications group that offers holistic media, hospitality and technology solutions. He shares his entrepreneurial successes and failures through radio and television interviews and special sessions that are meant to empower and motivate entrepreneurs as well as employees of big corporations. This has assisted the South African Black Entrepreneurs Forum (SABEF) to reach a membership of aspiring, emerging, and established entrepreneurs.
