Two-hundred-and-forty of the country’s brightest young potential met at the annual Allan Gray Orbis Foundation Jamboree at Spier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch on the 20th and 21st July for a weekend filled with creative exchanges and collective contribution to conversation topics. Conceptualised in 2011, this is an event that brings all Fellows from different regions in South Africa and different fields of study together to build on ideas influenced by the colourful association of varied backgrounds and specialities.
The third Jamboree was of the highest quality thus far, with excellent speakers such as Michael Jordaan, ex FNB all-star and industry MVP several years running. Ideas were a class above and pitches were delivered confidently, making the 2013 Jamboree a huge success.
The Jamboree is the ultimate Fellowship experience. Its value lies not just in the two day event, but also in the Fellowship’s Entrepreneurial Leadership curriculum that supports it. This being the third Jamboree iteration, it has set the bar for future greatness within the Foundation and created an opportunity to showcase the possibilities arising from bringing entrepreneurially-talented Fellows together in a designated area.
