More about the Author

Nyimpini Mabunda

Born in 1976 in the former homeland of Gazankulu, at the height of resistance against apartheid, a young boy working at his family’s trading store began to dream that in spite of all the political and social obstacles, he could take on the world as a leader in business. Nyimpini Mabunda completed matric at the age of 15, obtained a degree from the University of Cape Town at the age of 18 and became a manager in a global consumer goods company at the age of 21.

Through modelling himself on the traits of successful business leaders he encountered in roles across Africa and Europe, Nyimpini learned how to perform so that his achievements could not be ignored. Achieving the rank of CEO of one of the world’s most recognised global organisations before the age of 40, he turned his attention to empowering others, lifting African talent to the world stage.
