Johannesburg, June 4, 2014: African Billionaire Events Management (ABEM) is proud to announce that it will be hosting the legendary Robin Sharma in Johannesburg on July 25, 2014.

One of the world’s most influential business thinkers, authors and trainers, Sharma may be best known for his global best-seller The Monk who sold his Ferrari which has been translated into 42 languages. Today, his focus is the enormously popular and effective ‘Lead without a Title’ series in which he demonstrates principles and methodologies for taking complete charge of your own life and work experiences.

This seminar which carries three ticket price points: R499 for Gold Seating, R999 for VIP Seating and R2999 for Platinum Seating, is a must-attend event for anyone who feels the need to take greater charge of their lives, to overcome obstacles to finding new opportunities, or just to understand what their greatest purpose is.

“We’re genuinely excited about this one. Robin Sharma is like a guru for tens of millions of people around the world, and his 20 years of teaching from The Monk who sold his Ferrari to Lead without a Title have earned him an enviable reputation as a no-nonsense, practical, inspirational and brilliant human being. South African audiences are in for a real treat, but unlike many other speakers, Robin doesn’t just offer a wow factor, but real take-home value as well,” says Mubeen Khan, director at African Billionaire Events Management.

“It doesn’t really matter who you are, or your path in life, this seminar, led by Robin himself, will teach attendees how to take on bigger challenges, make better decisions and solve more problems,” he says.

The all-day event takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre – beginning at 09h00 and ending at 16h00 and features an additional guest speaker named Andy Harrington who will share his expertise on becoming an effective communicator and speaker before Robin Sharma hits the stage.

Off The Beaten Track

This September, being Tourism Month, we have so much to talk about in South Africa, and so many people to engage with, both domestically and abroad. We are privileged to be able to leverage a broad range of destinations – arguably world-class in nature, and they expand way beyond a beautiful mountain, and an ecosystem of game.

The vast majority of leisure tourists, however, remain attracted to the Mother City and various Safari destination, while business tourists tend to stick to hub cities for short durations of time before departing again.

“There is a golden opportunity to expand on the same offerings – while not detracting from them in any way. Our responsibility is to drive tourism into new areas, really emphasising the differentiators that are incredibly attractive to local and international tourists,” said Benediction Zubane, Head of Marketing at Mango Airlines.

“Often tourists visit one of the more well-known sites in an area, and are completely unaware of the other features and destinations close by. We’re seeing a lot of success in township tourism which goes to show how diversifying can really drive new tourism opportunities,” explained Zubane.

According to Statistics South Africa survey on Tourism and Migration, nearly 3.5 million international travellers visited South Africa in August 2017. Top numbers were tourists from USA, UK, Germany, France and The Netherlands, with African visitors primarily coming from SADC countries. Zubane added, “This means there is vast opportunity to begin engaging with travellers in new countries across the globe. We need to become our own best ambassador, talking-up our famous and lesser known destinations, proudly showcases our uniqueness. We should also be tourists in our own country and start exploring the wonders of the Rainbow Nation.”

Mango is passionate about helping its SMEs and entrepreneurial community to successfully overcome the unique challenges facing the tourism industry: “There has never been a more opportune time for small businesses and entrepreneurs to benefit positively from tourism in South Africa, and we hope to celebrate alongside our SME community as they fly high – both literally and figuratively,” he concludes.
