Henley Business School will be hosting a breakfast with Founder and CEO of the Homecoming Revolution, Angel Jones, on Wednesday, 18 June 2014.
It was Madiba's words: "I love you all so much, I want to put you in my pocket and take you home", that inspired Jones to return to South Africa after spending seven years in London.
In addition to founding Homecoming Revolution in 2003, she was co-founder and Executive Creative Director (from 2000-2013) of Morrisjones Advertising, creator of the kulula.com brand. Jones is on the founding board of the SA chapter of the Entrepreneurs' Organisation, a global business network.
In 2003 she won the Shoprite Checkers/SABC2 Woman of the Year Award for Media & Communications. In 2007, she was a finalist in the Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur Award and in 2012 was nominated New Generation Leader by African Leadership Network.
Jones is a sought-after speaker and previous engagements include the Grahamstown Festival, Wharton Business School, Pennsylvania and Oxford University. Attendees will hear her take on the African brain gain as she talks about:
- Her personal homecoming journey
- The top five reasons why people come back
- The best and worst bits about returning
- The different nuances of homelife in South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Uganda
- The homecomer's dilemma - get a job or start a business?
- Latest insights and stats regarding the African brain gain
