Personal transformation is the catalyst for a transformed Africa. When African people Wake Up to their power, Show Up - connect with others meaningfully and Speak Up, they become part of the African transformation. Dr Mazaza's own journey to personal transformation has encouraged him to motivate others to become conscious of their own potential. By using Agenda2063 - the African Union strategy to optimise the use of Africa's resources for the benefits of all Africans as a basis - Shadrick uses this talk to remind us of the importance of personal transformation in achieving such a vision.

Dr Mazaza is a physician, philosopher and university academic. He is Founder of African Consciousness Institute, an organization dedicated to the Waking up, Showing up and Speaking up required to co-create the Africa we desire. His main focus is currently authentic leadership and personal transformation. His extensive leadership participation in the medical profession includes: Board of the South African Medical Association; Board of the Council for Health Services Accreditation of Southern Africa; The College of Family Physicians of South Africa and is deputy president and immediate past president of the South African Academy of Family Physicians.
