Oliver Fortune Chikodzore
Oliver Fortune Chikodzore is a South African entrepreneur who specialises in thought-leadership and strengths-based personal development. He is respected for his unique perspectives and his balance of contrarian thinking with measured judgment. He is an individual who is devoted to the wellbeing of Africa, its youth and future generations. He has dedicated all his efforts and resources to the goal of stimulating Africa to redeem her glory, to reassert her centuries-old contribution to economies, politics, culture, and arts and once more to be a pioneer in the many fields of human endeavour. He is an abstract thinker, yet also a concrete theorist of note. This is evident in his articles and his works in various thought-leader platforms in which he has held presentations and lectures through Project Management South Africa (PMSA) and Cape Media Corperation, just to name two.
Currently, he is the Chief Executive Officer of The African Innovation and Entrepreneurship Centre: an initiative that helps uplift the youth in struggling communities and mobilize the future of African development and economic growth.
A fervid entrepreneur at heart, Oliver speaks professionally on leadership, innovation change and creating a high-performance culture. Oliver believes the blueprint to building a successful business lies in getting four key pillars right: the quality of its leadership; its ability to innovate strategically and creatively; its proficiency at managing change intelligently; and lastly, the degree to which it can embed a high-performance culture in people, especially in identifying critical aspects in high-pressure situations. He is extremely passionate about instilling leaders with the necessary skills to build empires and achieve greatness within a highly competitive market.
