The debut episode of The Mentorship Challenge - with Marc Wainer kicks off tonight on CNBC with the aim of taking entrepreneurial insights beyond the boardroom to a place where bright young minds meet seasoned leadership legends in an exchange of ideas and perspectives.
Marc, as executive chairman of Redefine Properties, will bring his inimitable style and powerful insights to the fore as he tackles challenges like a dire lack of mentorship, skills, start-up and employment opportunities for the youth.
From humble beginnings, Marc had to climb the corporate ladder to success the hard way and is a firm believer in mentorship in providing an unparalleled, enabling platform for top leaders to leave a legacy through shaping the journeys of the budding business trailblazers of tomorrow.
Redefine Properties is proud to sponsor the show, which airs on CNBC DStv Channel 410 at 20h30, as it unpacks the notion of sustained social upliftment through mentorship. We believe that in our socioeconomic climate, this show is particularly relevant and is a good fit for Redefine, as it demonstrates how our people-centricity translates into social upliftment.
As South Africa suffers from what is commonly called a 'crisis of leadership', we believe that it's up to corporates to step into the breach and provide aspirational leadership models for future generations.
The Mentorship Challenge is an innovative way to make a real difference in people's lives, and demonstrates our commitment to our country and its future leaders. Mentorship serves as a guiding hand out of poverty to success - securing a better and stronger future for South Africa together.
