UCT’s Chancellor Graça Machel and marketing guru, Emeritus Professor John Simpson, shared their insights on sustainable business with a panel of top executives on 21 June 2016.

The discussion, held at The Forum in Bryanston, was titled ‘Collective Action for a Sustainable Future Together’ and was jointly hosted by Unilever and the UCT Unilever Institute. The panel highlighted the importance of research in driving decision-making.

Machel and Simpson were joined on the panel by Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever, and Herve Ludovic de Lys, UNICEF South Africa Country Director.

“It was an honour to have UCT represented at this high level and John had a loud round of applause after he spoke,” reported James Lappeman, who teaches marketing alongside Simpson at UCT.
