A personal message from the Conference Co-Chairs

The_Wits_University_East_Campus-200x200Hello, Sanibonani, Molweni, Dumelang, Hallo!

We are Zanele and Thabang from the Wits Business School, one of South Africa’s oldest and most prominent tertiary learning institutions.  We are delighted to host the fifth annual ICMLG Conference and are excited to welcome you to Johannesburg.

Johannesburg is a city steeped in history and culture and has a world renowned energy that cannot be matched.  The lure of plentiful gold buried within its ridges saw the birth and rise of the city in the 1880’s. A century later, it was home to the most significant resistance movement during the struggle against the apartheid regime in the 1980’s.  Now an international melting pot and an economic powerhouse, this city has something to offer everyone.

We are looking forward to the insights that will be shared by you, our esteemed colleagues, during the conference and trust all participants will benefit from the experience as much as they will contribute.

Thank you.
