A dynamic speaker, she has been invited to speak on various stages in South Africa, Mozambique, USA and Austria.
Her life’s work tells a narrative of a new breed of women in business and her efforts thus far have earned her recognition in business circles, the most recent being the Elle International Impact Award, she received in Paris.
“’Think in years, plan in months, work in days’ is a mantra Thato Kgatlhanye lives by that has led me to being international about my success.
Through many generations, we have built the largest economic engine in history that allows for remarkable things to happen.
All the tools are here: the market is waiting, the capital is waiting, those seated in boardroom chairs are waiting.
Waiting for someone to show up. In this awe-inspiring keynote, Thato Kgatlhanye will share stories about unlikely heroes, businesses organizing for joy and science gone wrong, all in the pursuit to inspire those in the room to stop postponing their joy.
When Thato Kgatlhanye leaves the stage, my mission is to have each person in the audience to arrive at a clear answer to this question:
‘How long will you make us wait before doing your best’
