Indra will be sharing his insight and expertise as a former BBC journalist and South African television producer on telling Africa's stories to the world.  He will also address the massive technology changes going on in the continent.   Indra's presentation will be followed by a Q&A. Light snacks and beverages will be served

Every great  leader needs to tell great stories. And every storyteller ends up telling stories about great and not so great leaders. Indra has told the stories of Nelson Mandela, Augusto Pinochet (the Chilean dictator), Mikhail Gorbochev (the Soviet leader who ended the Cold War), Kurt Waldheim (the head of the UN and President of Austria), Sadaam Hussein (the Iraqi leader)  and Margaret Thatcher (the Prime Minister of the UK). 

Indra will share what he has learnt about leadership, about storytelling and why and how the two are linked.
