Be part of BIS conversation

    John O’ Conner

    Members of the community are invited to join the Border Icons in Sport on October 29 to participate in a conversation with businessman and skills developer, John O’Connor.

    O’Conner is the driving force in local sports development and is the owner of leading enterprise and skills development businesses in SA.

    He also facilitates skills development of providers of sport and physical education and was recently the main founder of an impact funding initiative.

    His last mission before retirement is to thrust township and rural sport back into the limelight of the days when the non-racial sport was thriving.

    He will share his own success stories and failures as a sports administrator, social activist, and businessman with attendees at the event.

    The event is part of a roadshow in which he will share his experiences in sports and business with the aim of igniting a spark in young people.

    The goal is to encourage and guide others on their own journeys, which could lead to greater success for the next generation.

    O’Connor said he would also facilitate this session as an informal conversation, to debate, question, share ideas, and discuss the 10 immutable laws to business success.

    This was to encourage and guide others in a direction that would result in a successful outcome for themselves or the communities they served, he said.

    The idea is to use the platform to engage and share and co-create with everyone present, to find lasting solutions for sport, as well as economic mobility of young people.

    All are welcome, especially young people and other community leaders that have the same vision for a better SA.

    Border Icons in Sport will also be hosting a seminar at the Khanya Youth and Community center at 172 Dunoon Road, Buffalo Flats.

    Topics to be covered include the power of information, sports club management, school sports management, leadership and transformation, and entrepreneurship for young black South Africans.

    Seating for the gala dinner and seminar is limited, so please reserve your space soon.

    For inquiries, contact BIS administrator Deon Muller at 079-608-9192.
