Joining the line up of distinguished speakers at the 2012 Global Leadership Summit, Jim Collins will unpack research that analyses how great businesses can survive and thrive in a risky and uncertain era. The two-day conference is brought to South African shores by the Willow Creek Association, with leadership talks being broadcast in eight different cities around the country.

Collins, an acclaimed American business consultant, is a lecturer on the subject of company growth and sustainability, as well as a best-selling author and co-author of several books. He frequently contributes to numerous publications including Business Week, Fortune, and Harvard Business Review.

Beginning his teaching and research career as a faculty member of Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, Collins received an award in 1992 for Distinguished Teaching. He later established a management laboratory in Colorado, where he currently teaches executives within the social and corporate sectors, as well as conducts research. Besides a stint at CNN International as a senior executive, Collins has worked with organisations such as the Leadership Network of Churches, Johns Hopkins Medical School, and the United States Marine Corps.

Collins has been successful with many of his books, selling more than 10 million copies in total. Based on his research findings, his written works have become classics for business professionals. Titles include Built to Last, Beyond Entrepreneurship, Good to Great, Good to Great and the Social Sectors, How the Mighty Fall, and Great by Choice.

Built to Last spent more than six years on Business Week’s bestseller list and has been translated into 25 languages. Good to Great has attained long-standing positions on several bestseller lists, including the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. The book has also been translated into 32 languages and sold more than 2,5 million copies.

In his writings, Collins employs his signature research methodology to tackle tough questions and topics related to the growth, sustainability, and leadership of organisations. Great by Choice, his most recent offering, manages to distinguish itself by focusing not only on performance, but also on the unstable environments many leaders face today.

The first Global Leadership Summit event kicks off in Pretoria on 5 October 2012. Attendees can expect to gain exceptional insight into cutting-edge leadership principles from some of the worlds most respected communication and leadership experts.
