Thami Pooe (Tshimong)
For this edition of 5Talks, we are asking the question of “What are the youth of today doing to solve the country’s problems”. To help understand, we chat to Managing Director of Tshimong, the school of public speaking, Thamie Pooe. Tshimong is a social enterprise strengthening, multiplying, and amplifying the voices of young people. Tshimong introduces a debating, public speaking and leadership format to corporate social responsibility programmes in order to help young people develop important critical thinking; communication; and leadership skills. Their CEO, Busi Mkhumbuzi, is facilitating the Nelson Mandela lecture today.
