Rebels Renegades and Problem Solvers with Bruce Whitfield

Wednesday, 19 August | Online

Rebels Renegades and Problem Solvers paints a stark, realistic picture of the multiplicity of issues South Africa faces, and how a new generation is using technology to solve problems, transform and modernise the current business environment.

A quarter of a century into its democracy, South Africa is complex, unequal, and beset by problems. It’s in solving those problems, that lies South Africa’s greatest opportunity. Bruce deals with the hard issues but shows that use of modern technology combined with entrepreneurial spirit provides a sober yet optimistic view of South Africa 5.0.

Bruce’s unique brand of humour and story-telling ability adds to the data-rich presentation as he takes you through the career highs and lows of some of South Africa’s most dynamic and diverse entrepreneurs and dares to paint a picture of a future few dare to imagine is possible.

Learn from the lessons of some of South Africa’s smartest citizens as you understand how the smart use of technology can solve issues and modernise the current business environment.

About Bruce Whitfield


Host of the Money Show on 702 and Cape Talk, Whitfield has won more awards for financial journalism than any other working South African media professional. A celebrated broadcaster, author and TV presenter, he presents Taking Stock on eNCA and is a contributing editor at the Financial Mail.

A sought-after speaker and facilitator, Whitfield removes the jargon from financial speak, makes complex concepts accessible and kickstarts the conversations that’ll help move South Africa forward.

His latest venture The Upside of Down is a book that delves into the inspiring stories of individuals who are doing remarkable things to solve South Africa’s collective challenges. Those who create opportunity amid chaos.

Pithy, empathetic and always honest, he is an insightful commentator on the political economy and has been accused of being an optimist… but a cautious, realistic one. An observer of humanity, he is first and foremost a storyteller.

Whitfield has a Bachelor of Journalism from Rhodes University and is married with two children.
