ILDP 2019 – Get to know the students 4/4

The Insurance Leadership Development Programme (ILDP) is the IIG’s official leadership programme that provides composite leadership education with the added benefit of an insurance industry contextual environment, proudly sponsored by Sasria SOC Ltd. in association with the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS).

Meet our third syndicate, who have been focussing on “The future of work” for their Action Learning Project (ALP) final presentation.

Nox Dlamini – Econorisk
Q  – The ILDP offers many exciting learnings and experiences, what are you most looking forward to this year?
A – Graduation!  It represents successful completion; the culmination of effort, sacrifice, learning and growth and achieving a big goal I am setting for myself. While it will be the end of a powerful journey, I also see it as the beginning of immense career opportunities far beyond the program.

Q – If you could have lunch with anyone in our industry, who would it be and why?
A – Thokozile Mahlangu – a transformer of note. A pioneer and pillar of excellence, it would be the biggest honour to sit across from the CEO of our professional body and soak in her wisdom.

Q – As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?
A – It changed all the time! A writer, a doctor, a rapper, a basketball player. The most consistent one was lawyer though, as I even ended up enrolling for a law degree.

I am tired of just existing; I want to be in a position where I can consciously and intelligently influence positive change in me, our workplace and the industry.

Q – If you could have lunch with anyone in our industry, who would it be and why?
A – Adrian Gore without a doubt. I would be very curious to get his insights in terms of that “one thing” that keeps him up at night.

A – Coffee and Movies.

Tebogo Raphothelo – Discovery

Q – The ILDP offers many exciting learnings and experiences, what are you most looking forward to this year?

Q – If you could have lunch with anyone in our industry, who would it be and why?
A – It has to be Themba Baloyi, the Founder and Executive Director of Discovery Insure. I first heard about him in 2017 when he was one of the presenters at an IIG insight session. I later went on to read more about him – I have never been more inspired by someone who is dedicated and passionate about impacting not only the insurance industry but the country as a whole.

Q – What’s your favourite quote / words to live by / wisdom to share?
A – Favourite quote: “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela.
Words to live by:  Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things.
