"We've added to our collection of bigger picture thinkers to explore more topics, including the future of social governance, medical regulation and enforcement and local and global financial markets," says Tracy Hirst, PSG's chief marketing officer.

Hirst will be hosting a later discussion in the series on the future of media. The talk will feature award-winning journalist and filmmaker Richard Poplak.

"I feel so privileged to be tapping into some of the country's sharpest minds and look forward to sharing those conversations," Whitfield says.

"Richard Poplak will warn us that the destruction of truth is what the world is currently about. Our aim with this series is therefore to empower viewers with facts so as to formulate their own opinions and to manage their expectations on how various aspects of the current situation in South Africa and globally, could unfold," says Hirst.

Professor Thuli Madonsela, Graeme Smith and Prof. Glenda Gray are among the first of the new speakers added to the Think Big webinar series line-up.

"We're delighted that such prominent individuals have agreed to engage with us — and subsequently our audiences — on issues close to South African hearts and minds," concludes Hirst. "We think the Think Big series touches on many important themes and trust the webinars will add value to viewers' thinking."
