Straight up interviews from The Gareth Cliff Show on CliffCentral.com - without any interruptions.

    What are the results we should be bracing for in South Africa as the political decisions impact our economy? Daniel Silke is someone who could provide some answers around this. As he’s written in his recent column: “Re-opening South Africa needs to express much more than a colour-coded set of amended restrictions. It needs to be coupled to hope for a new future. Not one based on dependency and decay, but one based on innovation across the board.” Gareth chats to Silke, a keynote speaker, author and futurist specialising in South Africa, Africa and global trends. He’s also the Director: Political Futures Consultancy.

    #LivingInLockdown: Sean Donovan

    How is the coronavirus pandemic affecting the advertising and marketing worlds? That's what Gareth discusses with Sean Donovan. As the President in Asia for TBWA - known for disruptive ideas that locate and involve brands in culture, giving them a larger share of the future - Sean definitely knows more than a thing or two about this.

    As Covid-19 has engulfed the world, an interesting observation to make has been the different approaches taken to thwart the threat of the pandemic. With a documented global history of male bias when selecting leaders, should we be looking to re-address the role of women in leadership? There's evidence to suggest female Presidents and Prime Ministers have dealt with large scale challenges far better than their male counterparts in the last half century. From Thatcher to Merkel, from Ardern to Ing-Wen... this may be the time for feminine leadership to be given its big break.

    Africa has always had a rich oral tradition of storytelling, that through the centuries has made it possible for people or cultures to pass knowledge, history, and experiences from one generation to the next. This largely rural tradition is a dying art form that has never been more necessary, particularly at such a critical time in South Africa’s history. Even with a financing past, Michael Charton understood this and created Inherit South Africa - to condense epic narratives of South Africa into bite-sized stories. He shares more about his passion with Gareth, and retells some of his favourite figures from the past.

She explains this to Gareth while under lockdown in this phone call conversation.

In depth discussions with people that matter

I remember saying last year that I was sick of listening to “pop fluff” and “celebrity” and wanting more in depth, heart to heart conversations with people that matter. Well, that’s what we got. Another great addition to the world of Podcast with world class interviews and guests from our very own, Gareth Cliff. Not to be missed. Current and relatable, this is a definite ‘subscribe’ from me.
