Brightest Young Minds shine

21 August 2006

South Africa's top 100 bright sparks have been announced by the non-profit initiative Brightest Young Minds (BYM), with the highest number of representatives belonging to UCT - 23 in all, including 10 women.

The top 100 attended a seven-day conference in Johannesburg, aimed at providing these future leaders with networking opportunities. They also met some of the country's most influential business leaders and visionaries. Mentors have included Minister of Finance Trevor Manuel and BHP Africa chair Dr Vincent Mamphai.

"In the simplest of terms, BYM provides an unparalleled opportunity for the cream of SA's youth to shine," commented BYM president Christine Strutt.

"Our annual BYM conference is the catalyst that channels and fast-tracks the country's sharpest young visionaries. This conference celebrates the best SA youth has to offer - academic talent but also energy, leadership skills and entrepreneurial spirit."
