A new year to Think Big: PSG’s webinar series returns with top speakers
PSG is pleased to announce that it will continue with its successful Think Big webinar series, which launched last year. The 2021 series kicks off on 26 January. As the country continues to battle uncertainty around restrictions, curfews and whatever unknowns might come next in the Covid-19 journey, there is much to consider around the impact on all local and global communities, economies, and many spheres of modern life. “Feedback on our 2020 series was very positive and prompted us to continue to have these inspiring, important conversations as we all prepare to tackle the year ahead,” says PSG’s Chief Marketing Officer, Tracy Hirst.
Where is South Africa heading?
Chairperson of the Board and Head of African Futures & Innovation, Jakkie Cilliers will kick off this year’s exciting line-up. Cilliers, a respected futurist, analyst, author and commentator, will share his insights on what to expect in 2021, and (believe it or not) what positives to take from 2020.
