Rialheim and MAD Leadership Foundation partner for THEMBA

Meet Sithembile. This is her story of how MAD Leadership Foundation gave her hope. "Ngiyabonga Kakhulu" to you for investing in the future leaders of South Africa. // Created by Slingshot Media //

#DreamBelieveFly is in Rialheim’s DNA. Rialheim was born out of the need to create and it was that need that created a dream. While we are self confessed dreamers at Rialheim one of our secret dreams is to see how achieving our dreams can affect our team members positively. How every time Rialheim reaches a new milestone, it creates pride and joy for our team, how their dreams became our dreams and sometimes we even have the privilege to see how their dreams become a reality. It’s an honour to see this impact on real people and to be so close to the team. 

Four years ago, on Nelson Mandela Day, we publicly committed ourselves to create 25 jobs. That Dream became a reality and thats why #DreamBelieveFly is in our DNA. In reaching one’s dream there is a secret ingredient which we call magic. In Rialheim’s case the magic is our team members and clients who enable us to fly. All dreams needs magic to fly. The magic of life is also the undefinable and beautiful part of life. 

As we live the journey of Rialheim we sometimes have the opportunity to meet people and organisations that share our DNA. However consuming that journey might sometimes be, we are forced to open our eyes to see the magic people do around us. Even after years of being involved with Make A Difference Leadership Foundation I was recently forced to see the magic they create. If you ask me in one sentence what the magic in Make A Difference Leadership Foundation is, I’ll tell you that they don’t only believe in other people’s dreams but they are the magic that make these dreams fly. 

In the words of their founder, Francois Pienaar, 

“ Imagine, if we could grow an army of young leaders who care about this country, who who cares about society, who care about the community. What a powerful force for change that could be.” 

I’m truly fascinated by the prospect of such a dream and completely absorbed in how MAD creates this magic. 

In honour of a great leader that walk the walk and talk the talk, Rialheim is extremely proud to take our relationship further with Make A Difference Leadership Foundation as a tribute to Nelson Mandela Day. Make a Difference Leadership Foundation will be our official partner going forward therefore enabling us to invest in the leaders of tomorrow. 

We are proud to announce that Rialheim will co-host the inaugural Themba event hosted on the 27th of September 2018 at The Fox Junction in Johannesburg.
