Russel Simmons to headline Liberty Vuka Knowledge Summit

By Angelique Ruzicka

Russell Simmons, US mogul, has been announced as the key note speaker at the The Liberty Vuka Knowledge Summit. The summit will take place on November 1 and 2, at the Sandton Convention Centre.
 
The theme is: ‘Awaken Your Curiosity’ and will be attended by some of the world’s leading entrepreneurs, business leaders and intellectuals – including Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka and founder of online platform Flexy, Annette Muller will be imparting their insights about how their curiosity, as well as thirst for, and application of, knowledge has led to their success in business and society.
 
Other local and international speakers include Kimberly Bryant, Vivian Onano, Mat Heinl, Nechama Brodie and Brand Pretorius as well as a few surprise guests.
 
“Modern day society boasts an overwhelming reservoir of information and knowledge in organisations and among individuals,” says Murison. “The challenge is how to recognise that knowledge, mine it and activate it to create solutions that bring positive benefits to communities and the world. We have purposefully sought individuals both near and far who have first hand experience and will share their wisdom,” says Liberty Vuka Knowledge Summit founder Carlo Murison.
 
"Liberty is excited to be partnering with some of the world's leading futurists, innovators and business leaders to inspire and awaken society's desire for knowledge and success. Even in our 60th year of existence, we understand the power of being able to harness knowledge to impact the world we live in, because knowledge on its own is useless, unless it can be applied to change people’s realities. The summit aligns perfectly with our purpose of enabling financial freedom, which we are able to fulfil by putting knowledge into action,” added Liberty's divisional director of brand and marketing, Thembeka Saleshando.
 
Talk Radio 702's Azania Mosaka and CNBC Africa's Timothy Maurice Webster will partner as hosts.
