“The Play Your Part initiative is aimed at inspiring and empowering all South  Africans to adopt a positive attitude and get involved in shaping the country,” says  Brand South Africa Acting CMO: Sithembile Ntombela. “The aim of the masterclass  is to inspire innovation and entrepreneurship in business minds of the future,  which is why it’s themed Play Your Part: turn your ideas into currency.”

Local Play Your Part Ambassadors, former Miss South Africa 2016 Ntandoyenkosi Kunene-Mthethwa  and Refilwe Mthimunye also joined the Goliaths on stage to  share their journeys with the learners, who in turn shared their own stories of  struggle and triumph.

“It’s always such a powerful day with everyone in the room holding space for each  other,” continues Ntombela.

“Having our own ambassadors join us this week, gives an additional layer of  relatable context and we are grateful we could collaborate with them and make  these past few days in the province a success.”
