CFA Society South Africa speaker invite to members

CFA Society South Africa is delighted to announce the opportunity for a select number of members to form part of the prominent speaker line up at the CFA Society South Africa Investment Conference in July 2019.

The speaker opportunity will be an hour slot which will include a presentation as well as a question and answer session.

The theme of the conference is "Disruption in Africa".

Disruption is taking place everywhere and it seems there is nowhere left to hide. It is affecting almost every aspect of our daily lives and business. Disruption is typically associated with technological advances, however the impact of shifting demographics, economic policies and political dynamics will also be important in coming years. At our upcoming conference we will explore how this may impact Africa and consider how we can adapt and even benefit from these various trends, by seeking out how to be 'Antifragile' in a changing world. 

Ideally the chosen topic of the member should speak to the theme, with a specific focus on Africa.
