The Upside of Down

Bruce Whitfield, is a multi-platform award-winning financial journalist. His work on radio, television and in print gives him unique access to South Africa’s biggest power brokers in business and money.

Bruce has been named Financial Journalist of the Year three times in the past decade by independent judges in the annual Sanlam Awards and has received recognition for his work on the economy, companies and personal finance.

This engaging new talk brings perspective at a time of deep uncertainty and takes audiences on a roller coaster ride through 50 years of our history to provide some context to today’s challenges.
Nenegeddon was not the end. What felt cataclysmic at the time of Nhlanhla Nene’s firing in December 2016 is actually proving to be a catalyst for change – a slow and painful catalyst – but a catalyst nevertheless.

Despite the noise and the chaos over more than five decades, South Africans have prospered. Although negativity and despondency have reached new levels recently, history proves South Africans are resilient and have risen above these testing circumstances. History books verify that claim and Bruce will use those illustrations to push forward.
