Jon Foster-Pedley, dean of Henley Business School Africa, will be one of the keynote speakers at ‘Tomorrow’s Leaders Convention’ on 30th March at Emperors Palace.

 

Mr Foster-Pedley will cover the phenomenon of the precariat, a new social class developing by people who have an existence without predictability or security.

 

Guy Standing, co-president of Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN) coined the term precariat. “It draws a worrisome picture of global socio-economical changes. Recent political events proved that we live in the age of post-truth. The future is about emotion: this is what drew Trump to power and this is what caused Brexit,” says Mr Foster-Pedley.

 

“The precariat has emerged as questionably a new dangerous class, a result of the ‘gig economy’ with unequally distributed security and wages, and possibly an indication of the growing size and growing anger of a new class.”

 

“Henley Africa will be exhibiting at the convention (stand 30) where information will be provided to up-and-coming leaders on Henley’s internationally-recognised MBA and executive education programmes.

 

Other keynote speakers are Patrice Motsepe, Founder and Executive Chairman of African Rainbow Minerals and Thys van Zyl, CEO of The Franchise Co.
