Liberty Vuka Knowledge Summit keynote speaker Russell Simmonds comes to Sandton


The Liberty Vuka Knowledge Summit has announced that Russell Simmonds, US business mogul, will be a keynote speaker at the event to be held on 1 and 2 November 2017 at the Sandton Convention Centre, South Africa.

The summit, themed Awaken Your Curiosity, is targeted at visionary business executives focused on global leadership practices. 

The speakers include some of the world’s leading entrepreneurs, business leaders and intellectuals – Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka and founder of online platform Flexy, Annette Muller.

Liberty Vuka Knowledge Summit Founder Carlo Murison believes the curious will be inspired and be led to an awakening.

“Modern day society boasts an overwhelming reservoir of information and knowledge in organisations and among individuals,” says Murison.

“The challenge is how to recognise that knowledge, mine it and activate it to create solutions that bring positive benefits to communities and the world. We have purposefully sought individuals both near and far who have first hand experience and will share their wisdom.” 

“Liberty is excited to be partnering with some of the world’s leading futurists, innovators and business leaders to inspire and awaken society’s desire for knowledge and success. Even in our 60th year of existence, we understand the power of being able to harness knowledge to impact the world we live in, because knowledge on its own is useless, unless it can be applied to change people’s realities. The summit aligns perfectly with our purpose of enabling financial freedom, which we are able to fulfil by putting knowledge into action,” says Thembeka Saleshando, Liberty Divisional Director for Brand and Marketing. 

The summit hopes to attract an audience of business leaders and aspirational change makers.
