In the words of the icon Nelson Mandela “Education is the strongest weapon which you can use to change the world.” and our guest would agree. As the founder of Sifiso Learning Group, Sizwe Nxasana under the subsidiary of the Sifiso Learning Group has created a futuristic model of education that is technology driven and epitomises African excellence.

Future Nation Schools aims to build a network of private schools in South Africa and across Africa – that are world class and affordable to middle class families and yet with the same quality of education that private schools provide at a hefty fee.

Not only that, Future Nation Schools aims to nourish the young minds of our future generation, with the intention of producing young African leaders who are passion-driven, confident in themselves and excel at every task they put their minds to.

In 2015 Unisa School of Business Leadership awarded him with a Leadership in Practice award. He’s also a honorary doctorate recipient, he’s a trailblazer extraordinaire in all that he does, and he gets our award of black’cellence.
