The TV show hosted by the inimitable Marc Wainer unpacked the notion of mentorship, matching mentors and mentees in a remarkable partnership.
Considered as one of the most influential voices of his era in the property sector, Marc encouraged, cajoled and dared captains of the industry on the show to pledge hours to guide and shape the future of many young minds waiting to break the mould.
“The experience has been fulfilling as we have seen the progress and development of the mentees made over the past few months. This accolade would not have been possible without the pledges by the mentors whose efforts have laid the foundation of many success stories you will hear tomorrow,” says Marc Wainer, host, The Mentorship Challenge.

“We believe that, in our socio-economic climate, the show was particularly relevant given the unemployment challenge, especially amongst the youth, in South Africa. In The Mentorship Challenge we found an innovative way to make a real difference in people’s lives, and demonstrates our commitment to our country and its future leaders. Mentorship serves as a guiding hand out of poverty to success – securing a better and stronger future for South Africa”
