Maties Crest Talks
Our Maties Crest Talks are a series of conversations with national and international leaders and icons.The aim of these talks is to inspire, strengthen, guide and intrigue current and future leaders and decision makers. Through the Maties Crest Talks we are creating a platform for leaders from different walks of life, different industries and various contexts to share their views on leadership exclusively with Maties alumni.
