How do we feel connected in a world that is increasingly physically disconnected? Remote and online working has become the rule rather than the exception.

Learn more about how Dr Duggan sees the UCT GSB playing a significant role in doing business in Africa and find out more about how she sees her role in leading the UCT GSB going forward. Questions and answers will be moderated by Dr Grieve Chelwa, Senior Lecturer and MBA Programme Convenor. Later on, celebrity chef Jenny Morris the Giggling Gourmet, will host a cooking class to close the programme.  

On Saturday between 11:00 and 13:00 (SAST) listen to a panel of speakers including former Public Protector of South Africa, Professor Thuli Madonsela, entrepreneur and venture capitalist Vusi Thembekwayo, Executive Manger & CMO of FlySafair, Kirby Gordon (FT MBA 2010), and visiting faculty, Professor Rasoava Rijamampianina.
