The competition is a great learning experience for the aspirants who get to apply different facets of their classroom learning to a real-world integrated scenario as well as develop and showcase their leadership skills. The Top 6 teams have submitted their videos telling the world why they have entered and telling us their learning lessons. Their videos are Round 2 of the case study competition and your opinion counts to the final decision - you have a say by voting for your best team here.

It was inevitable that an international panel of judges from 4 countries on 3 continents with over 100 years of combined experience in Finance, Business, Leadership and the Academia be assembled. From Deon Fredericks – Telkom, Fabian Cazares – Philips, Jo Pohl – Telesure, Professor Cosmas Ambe – University of Limpopo, Aarti Takoordeen – JSE, Imraan Soomra – Oceana Group, all the way to Bukkie Adewuyi – SizweNtsalubaGobodo (SNG); the panel not only brings a diverse opinion but also expertise in multiple fields involved in the case study. 

The programme features a glimpse of The CharterQuest Case Study Center NPC’s latest endeavour, The Future CFO Magazine, with the cover graced by the Rockstar of public speaking, Vusi Thembekwayo as well as Team R.E.D, the team behind the competition. 

Valentine Nti, The CFO Project Executive Director said, “The 2016 detailed programme not only shows what will be happening during the global finals in October and the high impact CFOs, Business Leaders, plus other VIPs attending but includes the inspiration that enabled us begin this journey and the hard-working team behind it all!”
