The Personal to the continental: One solution to the realisation of African Union’s Agenda 2063.

In this talk, Dr. Aaron Turner will be joined by Dr. Shadrick Mazaza, to build on the principles discussed in Aaron’s previous talk.  How do universal principles of the mind apply to the future of the African continent?
Dr. Mazaza has long been interested in the link between personal transformation and organizational change. He is on the faculty of the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business  where he highlights the importance of an understanding of how the human mind works as the foundation common to both health and wellbeing on the one hand, and leadership and business on the other. Based on this link Shadrick was inspired by the African Union’s Agenda 2063 vision for continental change. Together, Dr. Mazaza and Dr. Turner will discuss how personal transformation is the only means for continental evolution. Both will illustrate the link between personal transformation and the socio-economic shifts in the African Union Agenda 2063 and how an understanding of the principles of the mind would fuel this shift. There is a hopeful and clarifying causal relationship between simple principles to the realisation of a developed, industrialised and integrated African continent.
