The first workshop of the 2016 Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme was held at Mont Fleur Conference Centre from 23 to 30 April. The 23 Fellowship candidates, selected from over 250 top quality applicants, came from 11 different African countries as far afield as South Sudan, Chad and Somaliland. However, after 8 days of intensive leadership learning activities at this beautiful retreat in the Stellenbosch mountains, they left as a cohesive and enthusiastic body ready to tackle and make a difference in the challenges of leadership in Africa. Further work awaits them before the second workshop in Oxford and London in early September, but the Mont Fleur experience was a very memorable one, as it has been for the 10 previous Fellowship classes. The candidates were not only encouraged to reflect on the leadership challenges of Africa by renowned African business and civil society leaders, and by political leaders such as Trevor Manuel and Jay Naidoo, but they were also enticed to reflect on their own leadership through carefully structured experiential learning exercises, which teased out some thought provoking self-reflection. The attached photos capture some of spirit of the week at Mont Fleur.

The Tutu Fellows and AFLI’s network of contacts across the continent have been very active over the last couple of months, seeking and identifying Africa’s highest potential emerging leaders to nominate them for the prestigious Tutu Leadership Fellowship. The Tutu Leadership programme is arguably the best leadership programme designed specifically for Africa’s emerging leaders in the age range 25-39 from all sectors of society, and as such, the all-expenses paid Fellowship is a highly sought after award. Only once candidates have been nominated may they submit an application for the Fellowship.
