Eran Eyal had it all: a trendy New York apartment, a jet-set lifestyle and investors lining up to get in on his million-dollar cryptocurrency start-up, Shopin. He had come a long way from an ordinary middle-class childhood in Durban and the burgeoning tech start-up world of Cape Town.

But the New York authorities pounced in 2018, charged him with fraud and packed him off to Rikers Island. There began the gobsmacking unravelling of a scam that spanned investors across the globe and revealed that Eyal had built a house of cards involving fictitious products, clients and advisors for Shopin and his previous company, Springleap. As more than $40 million went up in smoke, the South African entrepreneur was exposed as an audacious fraudster determined to succeed at any cost - even if it meant spinning a web of lies to do so.

“An age-old narrative about ego and flying too close to the sun as well as a modern version of greed in the tech world.” Michael Jordaan

“Eyal proves definitively that a thousand white lies can get you convicted of fraud. This book meticulously walks the reader though the start-up lies that ended in tears.” Nic Haralambous

In 2020 the world found itself in a state of flux. A global pandemic disrupted the world order while the digital transformation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), with its challenges and huge potential benefits, presented a fundamental paradigm shift. How are Africa's leaders to respond, today?
In a crisis, decisive leadership is imperative for the public good, but as we move beyond the pandemic and confront the changes of the 4IR, we must determine how we will adapt. What is clear is that leadership will have to be grounded in scientific and mathematical thinking and in good governance. It follows, then, that for South Africa to succeed as a nation in the 21st century we must be able to provide our people with an all-embracing education - not just science and technology but human and social sciences as well.

Leading in the 21st Century presents a comprehensive overview of how the world is changing and lessons we can draw from leaders, particularly in the African context. From Charlotte Maxeke and the Rain Queen Modjadji, to Mangaliso Robert Sobukwe, Eric Molobi and Richard Maponya, there is much to learn from great leaders. The challenges of the 21st century are immense - from climate change to social media and the digital divide that deepens our understanding of inequality, particularly in the 'new normal'. South Africa faces not only a shifting global context but a fraught local context of stagnant growth, rising unemployment and deep-seated inequality, worsened in 2020 by the national lockdown necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic. The 4IR offers solutions to many of our most pressing problems and we cannot afford to be left behind.

The certainty is that the 4IR has arrived. The debates lie in how we respond to it. Tshilidzi Marwala deciphers it all, while providing a framework for navigating these shifts.

McLean Sibanda believes that Africa must be deliberate about its economic development and that change requires champions, and importantly, fertile enabling environments.
In Nuts & Bolts you will gain unique perspectives on challenges faced by leaders overseeing a turnaround in any organisation; and the thought processes behind innovation initiatives that yielded value. McLean provides practical insights on innovation and entrepreneurship for Africa's development through a narrative of his seven years of repositioning Sub-Saharan Africa's first internationally recognised Science and Technology Park, The Innovation Hub. Included, too, are reflections from entrepreneurs who have all gone on to build successful businesses which will be useful for anyone working on a start-up or innovation, particularly institutions set up to create new products or services. The musings of various successful entrepreneurs and ecosystem builders provide relevant context, inspiration and examples as to how best make use of support programmes provided by incubators and organisations similar to The Innovation Hub.

Nuts & Bolts is a book about hope; it is full of stories about real people and companies who are making a difference, with testimonies of entrepreneurs, experienced ecosystem builders and innovators. It captures deep insights from the considerable time McLean has spent with entrepreneurs and innovators, on the importance of inclusive innovation and entrepreneurship, and provides a mix of global experiences and entrepreneurship narratives that eloquently sketch out the 'nuts and bolts' for entrepreneurship and innovation.

Gail Kelly's presence reaches far beyond her own profession. The first female CEO of one of Australia's big four banks, listed by Forbes in 2010 as the eighth most powerful woman in the world, and mother of four (including triplets), Gail is celebrated as one of the finest, most innovative thinkers on leadership and workplace culture. In these personal, practical chapters, Gail shares what she has learned over her remarkable career, drawing from her personal and professional life. As a leader, she argues passionately for the importance of putting people and customers at the heart of a business; of leading with courage and generosity of spirit; and of resilience. Some of these lessons were learned at times of high pressure, and Gail takes us into her thinking as she led Westpac through the global financial crisis and the merger with St.George. But Gail's voice speaks to each of us, whatever our role in life. She explores the absolute importance of loving what you do; learning to learn; backing yourself; and, most importantly, placing your family above all things. At the heart of Gail's refreshing, authentic, integrated approach is how both individuals and companies thrive when they openly address the meaning of what they do, and understand the need to live a whole life. Live Lead Learn is the inspiring story of one of the world's most prominent businesspeople. It is also the story of a Pretoria girl who started out as a Latin teacher before making a shift to banking. Her executive career in the financial services industry spanned 35 years, equally split between the two countries she loves - South Africa and Australia. Her first role was as a teller at the Simmonds Street branch of the SA Perm in Johannesburg. Her last role was that of CEO of Westpac in Australia. Gail describes her journey as an improbable one. It is certainly a fascinating one.

Effective facilitation provides guidelines from managers, team leaders, facilitators and trainers who are required to perform some aspect of facilitation as part of their job. Managers are no longer 'controllers'; they need to be facilitators of processes and systems. Employee involvement and change management are essential realities of the new business environment. These trends will fundamentally change the way companies train and develop their employees, and more importantly, manage their performance. To make this happen, organisations are using facilitators as change agents, consultants and trainers. Facilitation is a process to enable things to happen in an organisation. It includes the following: Helping people to identify the causes of problems, as well as solutions; identifying goals and objectives as part of strategic planning; improving work effectiveness by means of teamwork and capacity-building. This title offers practical guidelines to be an effective facilitator for all situations such as problem-solving exercises, team building sessions, brainstorming and training presentations.

Understanding the economy focuses on providing insights into the way the various parts of the economy fit together. The title is structured in a way that helps the reader avoid getting lost in a maze of concepts. A question and-answer format is used throughout, the questions being those that feature in economic debates in the media and those that are typically asked by interested nonspecialists. This title attempts to contribute to people's understanding of the economy by explaining key economic concepts, relationships and issues and the linkages between them in a practical and non-technical manner. A few elementary figures and graphs are also used to illustrate and explain certain key relationships.

Covid-19 has impacted every industry on the planet. It has pushed brands and businesses into unknown market territories and accelerated trends that were already emerging, but not yet fully formed or mainstream. It has propelled the fourth industrial revolution, with technology central to customer value, how it's produced and by whom. And it has forced enterprises to reimagine who they are and what they might become.
This book lays out a new business recipe for how to get, win and stay ahead in a post pandemic world. It's different because it goes beyond digital disruption and business transformation with the authors introducing the notion of Distinguishers - people, brands and businesses that win customers at speed, scale and lower costs while creating value for an expanding customer stakeholder universe.
The formula they offer is practical and potent. They reveal the next 'new', happening now.
Distinguishers displace mature and stale brands and enterprises - who the authors call Extinguishers - who cling onto old beliefs and persist in doing it the old way.
Distinguishers are obsessed with changing customer behaviour and creating market movements at speed. They break from old wisdom and methods of accounting, because they know that customers won't pay for baggage that adds no value. Distinguishers open up space and create more wealth, while using less.
This book, examining over 100 cases from all over the globe (Amazon, Netflix, Nespresso, Sodastream, Shopify, Kikstarter, UberEats and many more), reveals the recipe to become a Distinguisher.

A comprehensive but entertaining look at Africa's oil & gas present and future.
Two decades of negotiating African oil and gas deals have given NJ Ayuk a grasp of the continent's energy landscape that few can match. The American-educated, African energy lawyer serves up generous doses of that insight in his second book, 'Billions at Play: The Future of Africa Energy and Doing Deals.' He offers a road map for the continent doing a better job of using its vast energy resources to improve its peoples' lives.

He addresses how African countries can use their energy industries as spring boards for diversifying and growing their overall economies. Another is how they can negotiate better deals with international energy companies and how the continent's countries can use marginal oil and gas fields to develop domestic energy industries that, once strong, will compete globally. In addition, Ayuk discusses why Africa's fledgling natural gas industry can become an international powerhouse, how the continent can improve its notoriously unreliable, economy-sapping power industry, why American energy companies should stop curtailing their investments in Africa, and why the continent's energy industry needs more women.

The book's underlying theme is that -- in Ayuk's words -- 'too often, our natural resources create wealth for foreign investors and a select group of African elites while everyday people fail to benefit.' As for Africans needing to step up their energy-negotiations game, Ayuk notes that when he became an oil and gas lawyer years ago, 'Africans were not part of any kind of deal-making structure: When negotiations involving foreign investors' oil and gas exploration, production, and revenue-sharing took place, Africans were not at the table--or even in the room.'

A transformative guide to building more fulfilling relationships with colleagues, friends, partners, and family, based on the landmark Interpersonal Dynamics ('Touchy Feely') course at Stanford's Graduate School of Business

The ability to create strong relationships with others is crucial to living a full life and becoming more effective at work. Yet many of us find ourselves struggling to build solid personal and professional connections, or unable to handle challenges that inevitably arise when we grow closer to others. When we find ourselves in an exceptional relationship--the kind of relationship where we feel fully understood and supported for who we are--it can seem like magic. But the truth is that the process of building and sustaining these relationships can be described, learned, and applied.

David Bradford and Carole Robin taught interpersonal skills to MBA candidates for a combined seventy-five years in their legendary Stanford Graduate School of Business course Interpersonal Dynamics (affectionately known to generations of students as 'Touchy Feely') and have coached and consulted to hundreds of executives for decades.

In Connect, they show readers how to take their relationships from shallow to exceptional, along the way offering time-tested strategies for giving feedback, negotiating boundaries, and working through disagreements. Through stories of people navigating tricky moments in relationships--all based on real dynamics Bradford and Robin have witnessed or experienced--we see the six hallmarks of an exceptional relationship in action: authenticity, vulnerability, honesty, a willingness to ask for and offer help, a shared commitment to growth, and an ability to deal productively with conflict.

Filled with relatable scenarios and research-backed insights, Connect will be an important resource for anyone hoping to improve existing relationships and build new ones at any stage of life.

In 1960, the GDP per capita in South East Asian countries was nearly half of that of Africa. By 1986, the gap had closed and today the trend is reversed, with more than half of the world's poorest now living in Sub-Saharan Africa. Why has Asia developed while Africa lagged?

The Asian Aspiration chronicles the untold stories of explosive growth and changing fortunes: the leaders, events and policy choices that lifted a billion people out of abject poverty within a single generation, the largest such shift in human history.

The relevance of Asia's example comes as Africa is facing a population boom, which can either lead to crisis or prosperity; and as Asia is again transforming, this time out of low-cost manufacturing into high-tech, leaving a void that is Africa's for the taking. But far from the determinism of 'Africa Rising', this book calls for unprecedented pragmatism in the pursuit of African success.

In this edition of the publication, the authors explore practices of proven worth and challenging contexts for interventions. On the theoretical side, the title examines how life skills and assets are widely used in current discourses in psychology and education. Links with positive psychology, resiliency theory, inclusive education policies and practices, and indigenous knowledge systems, are explored. On a practical level, it illustrates the application of the life skills programme in group interventions with diverse participants. It also presents examples of the asset-based approach in research and practice. Contextually, the challenges of identifying, accessing and mobilising strengths and assets in a milieu characterised by vulnerable children, HIV and Aids, poverty, unemployment and illiteracy are described.
