2017 Leadership Workshop at Mont Fleur


The first workshop of the 2017 Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme was held at Mont Fleur Conference Centre from the 22nd to the 29th of April. The 26 Fellowship candidates, selected from more than 300 nominees, were from 11 African countries such as Equitorial Guinea, Sierra Leone and Egypt. 

The intensive leadership learning activities at the retreat in the Stellenbosch mountains provided space for introspection and time for friendships to develop among the cohort. This will serve them in good stead when they return home, ready to tackle and make a difference in the challenges of leadership in Africa.

The candidates were encouraged to reflect on the leadership challenges of Africa by renowned African business and civil society and political leaders as well as former Fellows. The intention was to give them the room to reflect on their own leadership qualities through carefully structured experiential learning exercises. The gallery below captures some of spirit of the week, both at Mont Fleur and nearby locations. More work awaits them before the second workshop in Oxford and London in the latter part of the year, but the Mont Fleur experience was a very memorable one, as it has been for the past decade of previous Fellowship classes.

The 2017 class also met a number of Fellows from earlier years who visited or came to speak, including Mokena Makeka, Wendy Burgers, Craig Wing, Lai Yahaya, Aidan Eyakuze, Judy Malan, and Ronnie Ntuli (AFLISA Chairman).
