This week Katie Hyson, Director of Thought Leadership at Business Fights Poverty interviews Sizakele Marutlulle, Founder and CEO of communications strategy company: Marutlulle +CO. Sizakele talks to us in anticipation of her keynote speaker role during the Business Fights Poverty flagship 2018 Oxford conference.

Sizekele’s experience as a brand builder, strategist and purposeful business champion has seen her rise from being the first university graduate in her South African family to corporate leader. Her CV stretches from MD of HerdBuoys McCann-Erickson, via CEO of Grey Advertising in South Africa and Head of Marketing for the bank Absa Africa to now founding and leading her own strategy consultancy.

This candid interview explores what being a black female leader means in to Sizekele. How purposeful business drives everything she does and why she has embarked on a PhD to explore society’s expectations of women to have children.

Sizekele is passionate about the integrity with which business couple’s its purpose and societal impact. She shares some of this during this interview and will be sharing more during her keynote at our Oxford conference on 18th July.
