Life begins at 40, so they say. But for those who cannot wait, Ndalo Media, in association with Bisquit Cognac, is hosting the Destiny and Destiny Man Power of 40 events. Cape Town and Durban will play host to the events that are set to serve as important networking platforms and will feature an inspirational talk by former Google Africa CEO, Stafford Masie.
The entrepreneur and technology futurist will share anecdotes about his life as well as highlights and challenges he has encountered on the road to success.
Masie was featured in the Power of 40 Report
in the November-December 2011 issue of Destiny Man
. The annual supplement in both Destiny
and Destiny Man
showcases individuals across various industries, including fashion, science, education, film and entertainment and inspirational entrepreneurs.
