Corporate success came extremely early for Mark Miller, a top private banker based in Cape Town, whose role in banking is to help high earners manage their finances.

"Cape Town is a beacon of success for the rest of Africa."

- Mark Miller, a private banker

He helps drive strategy and expansion at his company, Investec - an asset management multinational and key sponsor of Tutu's leadership project.

Mark has always dealt with countries outside Africa more closely than those in it. And life in Cape Town somehow seems remote from the crises which can plague the rest of the continent.

He has done corporate leadership courses before, but this is a leadership scheme with a difference, and along the way, Mark comes to a major realisation.
