If you could go for lunch with any business leader, who would it be and why? CIPS members choose

My pick would be [Dragons’ Den star] Peter Jones [below] because he’s an expert on how to successfully bring tech products and services to market.
Stephen Todd

The obvious ones are Richard Branson, Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg, but the person I’d have liked to have had lunch with would have been Stephen Covey [businessman, speaker and author of Seven Habits of Highly Effective People] – an absolutely inspirational motivator, leader and mentor.
Stuart Quinn

[CEO of Supply Chain Insights]  Lora Cecere
Esteban de Jesus

Elon Musk. So much to learn about – PayPal, Tesla Motors, SolarCity, Hyperloop and SpaceX – enriching our world and trying to get us to a new one!
Stephen Ashcroft

I would choose Telkom CPO Ian Russell
Sipho Esihle Mazwi Hlongwane
