DAY 1: THURSDAY 26 NOVEMBER 2020

Leadership in business, at schools and in S.A


You are invited to attend eight power-packed sessions, filled with masterclasses, panel discussions and workshops each exploring leadership in its different forms. In the family structure, in business, community, schools and the country.

This will then culminate in the form of the much-anticipated Cornerstone Institute 50th Anniversary Concert. We’ll celebrate five decades of hardships, growth, triumph and success in an awe-inspiring virtual production directed by Basil Appollis, in association with the Cape Cultural Collective and Penny Lane Studios.
