The WSPCCA Hosts Young Presidents Organisation

As part of his responsibilities to the Young Presidents Organisation, Dex Kotze, the CEO of Jenna Clifford Jewelry, hosted around 40 members of the organisation at the WSPCCA for a presentation by Prof. Judge Mervyn King.

The talk was followed by a tour of the unit by Dr. Kinsley and a delicious continental breakfast sponsored by Netcare Sunninghill Hospital.

The Young Presidents Organistion is a group of under-45 top-level managers of companies that earn upwards of R8m a year. The mission of the organisation is to develop better leaders through education and idea exchange—and this is done at regular events hosted by the organisation’s members.

This was a great opportunity to showcase the WSPCCA, what we do and hopefully raise some awareness of the plight of children throughout Africa who are stricken with congenital heart disorders, many of which are totally correctable.
