Young Leaders Dinners
Having the right skills and experience enables city regions to thrive. To support the attraction and retention of talent in the Cape Town city region, Accelerate Cape Town has hosted the Inspiration Sessions for the past five years with the objective of creating an environment for young professionals to build business networks with their peers and hear from inspirational black business leaders.
In 2015, Accelerate Cape Town launched our Young Leaders Dinners to support talent attraction and retention in our Sponsor organisations and provide an intimate environment for networking. The aim of these Young Leaders Dinners is to discuss issues impacting our young professionals’ career progression and the issue of transformation in the workplace in Cape Town.
These dinners are small engagements at an exclusive venue with three sponsor companies and facilitated networking. Each guest speaker will talk about key lessons learnt while building a career, and overcoming challenges in the workplace.
Note that these dinners are for our Sponsor companies only and not for all our members.
"The Young Leaders Dinner was enlightening. We need more organisations like Accelerate Cape Town to provide a platform for future leaders to discuss issues and hopefully map a better future for us all."
