GLCケープタウン ラーニングデープログラム

2020年EO GLCラーニングデーのテーマは、変わりゆくリーダー像です。終日、あなたを変革の旅に連れて行き、つながり、コミュニティ、達成、そして未来に関連するトピックについての知恵と知識を分かち合う有名なソートリーダーの話に耳を傾けてください。

ラーニングデーは、EOメンバーどなたでも参加することができます。

ラーニングブロック1:目的

目的には意味があります。それは、存在することへの意味です。それは、存在に意義を与えます。それがあなたの理由です。それが唯一の理由です。やり遂げる理由です。進み続けようとする理由です。以前よりも強くなって帰って来る理由です。目的は行く方向を示します。真に目指す方向を示します。正しい方向を向き続けるためのガイドです。計画が発展し、方法が変わっても、目的は変わりません。

目的には力があります。

ラーニングブロック2:達成

あなたが今いる場所はかつていた場所ではありません。ですが、あなたが今いる場所は、望む場所でもありません。今いる地点から目指す場所までの道は無限に長く、障害物が点在しているように思われます。あなたは、コツコツと働くこと、人生の浮き沈み、栄枯盛衰、早朝から深夜まで働くことを知っています。抵抗は常に起こります。課題も頻出します。

プランAを忘れると、プランG、Hときて、「次は何なのかわからない」と思うようになります。あなたの道のりは計画通りには薦めず、まだ同じ場所に留まっています。徐々に発展し成長しながら、アプローチを変えますが、目的には到達しません。硬い決意と変わらない情熱で、進み続けます。そして、粘り強さで立ちはだかるものを克服します。

Martin Brown

Martin Brown was born on a warm summer afternoon in the Mother City of Cape Town, South Africa.

His interests after high school led him into mechanical engineering and, after that, into the emergency medical field. He achieved National Colours in Acrobatics and was a member of the Acrobatic Federation of South Africa as well as being a provincial athlete and a professional ballroom and Latin dancer. In his second year of medical studies, however, Martin was injured in a freak diving accident which changed his life path forever.

In December 1997 (during his medical school break) Martin broke his neck and became paralyzed to the C4 level, a quadriplegic. He is only able to move his head. This limitation became an opportunity for Martin – the start of his business, born out of necessity.

Over the past 15 years, Martin’s business has become not only successful, but globally-recognized for designing and manufacturing custom-built, all-terrain powered wheelchairs. With a stick in his mouth and a crew that understood the company’s vision, he and his team worked diligently toward his vision and were awarded several entrepreneurial awards along the way.

By continuously reinventing the way he approached his life and the way his company approaches the current market, Martin has become a leader in his industry. He believes that he is where he is as a result of pushing boundaries – both he and his team strive to think beyond limits. Every year they introduce a new product on the market, keeping the company fresh and innovative. Building a globally-recognized company with only a stick in his mouth, he has now become a sought-after motivational speaker. His life lessons, combined with business lessons, makes him unique in the industry and recognized as an authentic and spellbinding speaker you won’t find anywhere else.

Session description
This amazing motivational speaker will take you on an eye-opening journey and leave you inspired. The incredible human potential of us, as mere mortals, to survive and excel is not always so evident.

Three main takeaways:

  • We procrastinate all the time – how do we undo that?
  • Always have excuses upon excuses? Learn how to leave them in the past.
  • We tend to underestimate our own self-worth, but we must value ourselves!

Danny K & Kabelo Mabalane

Danny K & Kabelo Mabalane have proven themselves to be far more than platinum selling, award-winning musical artists in South Africa. Having conquered the music business, the pair have transitioned into philanthropy and the pursuit of social justice, spearheaded by their NGO, Shout. The now decade-old organization has been responsible for building libraries across South Africa, helping thousands of children improve their literacy and numeracy skills.

Their latest project, Diversity 101, and its celebrated keynote, Worlds Apart Or Partners, invites you on the journey of their lives, where they share their radically different upbringings, cultures and experiences. They will show how, despite being worlds apart, they were able to come together and successfully build one of the most influential and widely-recognized partnerships in modern pop culture. Their unlikely story is used as a backdrop to address and highlight the many challenges brought about by South Africa’s diverse landscape.

Session description
An entertaining, enlightened and sober look at the state of South Africa as a country, people and business. The talk addresses some of the hardest-hitting and critical conversations needed in South Africa through song, storytelling and theory. The keynote will leave you inspired and challenged to access your humanity.

Three main takeaways:

  • Our differences should not been seen as a negative, but as an opportunity to create something truly unique and powerful.
  • The ability to access our humanity is the biggest catalyst in meaningful diversity and inclusion.
  • Equality is not a privilege. It’s a right.
