CSCLeaders Student gets businesses and young talent talking

As we look forward to the first in a series of CSCLeaders for Students conferences which start with Dubai, 1-4 September, we are also reflecting on the successes of last year's student conferences in Johannesburg.

Elsbeth Dixon, CEO of Common Purpose South Africa, has been catching up with Dalisu Jwara, one of the students who participated in CSCLeaders for Students Johannesburg in November 2012. He has been developing an idea called the South African Business Dialogue, which was directly inspired by what he describes as his 'life changing' experience on CSCLeaders for Students.

The purpose of this dialogue is to link industry with high potential youth leaders from campuses around South Africa through roundtable discussions, conferences and presentations about issues facing corporate South Africa and how future business leaders can play a more meaningful role in society.

Read more about the South African Business Dialogue. If you're interested in supporting this idea or you want to find out more, contact Dalisu at
