My guest today is Tsitsi Mutendi. She’s a family business expert in Africa, who worked in Zimbabwe before going to Johannesburg. She specialises in building multigenerational family wealth. She’s currently building brands that include a Montessori primary school in Harare, and a network to link family businesses together.
She first tells us about her work helping families discover their core motivations, history and values. We spend a long time speaking about the clash of legal and cultural norms, and how the law looks at different people in Africa. After that, we try and work out what makes people giants. Tsitsi tells us about how important it is to think about broad societal questions about where we are in the conversation, and what parts we’re playing and what parts we aren’t. We finish by talking about who we trust, and why?
