SA Critical Election - Tipping or Turning Point? 5:30pm, 8th May 2024

Price: 

£30.00

Please join us from 17:30 on Wednesday, 8th May at Streathers Solicitors, 44 Baker Street, London W1U 7AL, for an in-person discussion with one of South Africa’s most influential commentators on political, economic and future trends, Daniel Silke.

2024 is widely suggested to be the most pivotal election year in recent memory, as around the globe, 64 countries, representing almost half of the global population, are scheduled to go to the polls for national elections.

South Africa's General Election will take place on 29th May, 18th May for international voters. The global trend of voting for "change", a reflection of the disappointment felt by many people struggling with the cost of living and an increasing wealth gap, may prove to be of benefit to some countries, but not all.

South Africa is not isolated from the general discontent with government and with an increasing number of voters born after 1994, it will be interesting to see how many depart from voting along historically defined lines. Polls suggest the ANC may fall below 50% of the vote.  

Daniel Silke has described this election as "the most consequential election for South Africa since 1994". The range of possible outcomes is vast, from an ANC win, to a plethora of coalition options, some more difficult than others to sustain, to another party gaining an outright majority.

In this discussion, Daniel will focus on the domestic economy and possible political outcomes, exploring the complex interplay between economic strain and political change which is set to dominate the domestic discourse.

Tickets:

Free to members, £30 each for non-members. All are welcome, but booking is essential.

About Daniel Silke

Daniel is currently the Director of the Political Futures Consultancy based in Cape Town. He specialises in a range of highly acclaimed keynote presentations on three core areas – The South African Political Economy; The Economic State of Africa and Global Volatility, Risks and Opportunities. These three topics offer audiences the very latest research and analysis presented in a highly entertaining, yet stimulating and engaging style.

Beyond South Africa, Silke has built an enviable reputation in analysing current economic developments across the African continent. Africa today provides tremendous potential but emerging headwinds are cause for concern.

Silke’s keynotes are factual and content-driven. His research is meticulous and his speaking style relaxed yet forceful in impact. Translating the world of data into understandable trends is essential for business and Silke’s approach has won him praise across the world. Few speakers can combine the economic, political and business trend-drivers all distilled into a riveting 1-hour presentation.

The 695th Lord Mayor's Lectures: Governance To Prosper: The Importance Of Integrity, Values, And Policy 3:00pm, 22nd Apr 2024

Price: 

Free

The Rt Hon the Lord Mayor Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli is pleased to extend an invitation to all to participate in “Knowledge Miles: The Lord Mayor's Lectures”, an online webinar series exploring the connections of the Square Mile and how its knowledge clusters are addressing diverse global challenges.

This lecture is in three parts:
1. Understanding Governance. James de Sausmarez will explain how good governance encourages Trust and Trust underpinned by integrity is at the heart of doing business. “My word is my bond” to Brand and the importance of governance to keeping that implicit promise. Values underpinned the earliest governance frameworks. Technology and regulation has transformed the way the world does business. Good governance frameworks embrace Company values and have integrity, which generates Trust leading to business growth and therefore prosperity.

2. Are Governance frameworks good enough? With an increasing pace of change, greater shocks, discontinuities, and fewer opportunities to base decisions on precedents, governance needs to be underpinned by the values of the organisation and how these are put into practice. The findings from original research commissioned by WCCSA will be featured. David Lock will summarise the research and indicative results.

3. What should governance professionals and boards of directors do? Sharon Constancon will explain that the UK Corporate Governance Code, and its support document, Guidance on Board Effectiveness and frameworks for best practice for governance and leadership, set out a route to good governance frameworks but are not in themselves enough. Organisation wide values need to be articulated by boards who, led by the Chair, ensure they are embedded in business practice and decision making throughout the organisation so the policies, processes and procedures of governance and governance respect doing the right thing first time. Governance frameworks are not strait-jackets but should encourage an entrepreneurial attitude with no rubber stamps, no automatic refusal to consider new ideas and no avoidance of decisions. To deliver growth and prosperity, Boards must always consider what is in the best long-term sustainable success interest of the business whereby it can then benefit all shareholders, stakeholders and contribute meaningfully to the community, environment and wider society in which they operate.

The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor, Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli is pleased to extend an invitation to all to participate in Knowledge Miles: The 695th Lord Mayor's Lectures, an online webinar series exploring the connections of the Square Mile and how its knowledge clusters are addressing diverse global challenges.

Speakers:
David Lock: David is Secretary General of the Magna Charta Observatory based at the University of Bologna. This global network of approaching 1,000 universities is concerned with promoting and protecting the fundamental values of autonomy and academic freedom and universities’ responsibility to society.  David was previously Director of International Projects at the UK’s Leadership Foundation for Higher Education, the founding Registrar and Acting Chief Executive of the British University in Dubai and head of the administration of two British universities. He also chairs Gulf Education Conferences.

James de Sausmarez: Having trained as a Company Secretary at the Central Electricity Generating Board, James has spent most of his career in the investment management industry specialising in listed investment companies and heading the investment trust businesses of both Touche Remnant and Janus Henderson. As a director of Janus Henderson, he sat on the board of the firm's principal regulated operating subsidiary. He retired from Janus Henderson on 30 June 2022 and is now seeking non-executive positions to complement his voluntary activities.

South Africa's May 2024 Election - Binary, But Fraught With Opportunity 8:45am, 15th May 2024

Price: 

See website

BizNews is hosting a one-off conference in London within a fortnight of South Africa's historic May 29 General Election where the socialist African National Congress's three decades of political dominance is set to be replaced by the country's first coalition government in more than a century.

South Africa's economy has massively underperformed, especially over the past decade and a half, as the ANC followed the well-trodden destructive path of liberation-focused political parties. But with the ANC's vote share sure to drop below 50% for the first time since it assumed power in 1994. With the emergence of Jacob Zuma's MK party and the buoyancy enjoyed by numerous new entrants, it is not inconceivable the ANC's share drops into the mid-30s.

Apart from focusing on likely changes the election will introduce, this one-day event will also expose three unexposed areas in the SA economy with vast potential: game-changing oil and gas discoveries off the Cape's Southern and Western coastlines; the massive boom in private solar power which is fast eradicating electricity scarcity; and rapid expansion of the informal sector which offers exciting investment opportunities.

Alec Hogg, founder of BizNews, an independent South African publisher, will host this one-off event featuring seven South African-based thought-leaders. Their insights will be shared in an intimate setting (max 200 delegates) and in an interactive format. Not since full democracy dawned for the country three decades ago has SA been on the brink of such major change - fraught with danger but also offering great opportunity.

This is a rare opportunity for those based in Europe to get an inside track on seismic changes that will be ushered in by an election to be held a fortnight later in South Africa, its continent's most industrialised economy.
