Megan Pydigadu to reveal how you can build a better business through collaboration


The Get Smart summit this February will present the EOH Group FD and other inspirational speakers.

On 21 February, summit season kicks off at Summer Place in Hyde Park with Get Smart, where attendees will hear about BIG thinking and how collaborative behaviour can help them tap potential, accelerate performance and keep their businesses relevant.

In one of the breakaway sessions, EOH Group FD Megan Pydigadu will share with the audience the importance of collaboration, and how it can make a difference to an organisation. 

She explains: 

“I’ll be talking about getting people to think outside of the sphere of what they are responsible for, and how cross-functionality can deliver a better outcome in terms of the strategy you are driving.” 

She cites an example from a company she worked at previously, where five key behaviours were expected of staff, one of which was “being boundaryless in terms of your role”. “This really helps to create a better organisation” she says.

The OMG CEO Mqondisi Gumede will be presenting the keynote “Thinking BIG can take you places”, followed by the breakaway sessions also hosted by Transunion CEO Lee Naik and Peregerine CEO Rob Katz. Jon Foster-Pedley, the dean of Henley Business School will deliver the closing talk. 

Graham Fehrsen, the MD of CFO South Africa says: 

“Get smart is the chance for leading executives to swap notes and ramp up their efforts to drive excellence across their businesses. The summit will focus on the importance of collaboration and big thinking - critical elements for better business - with top guests offering their perspectives and experience. Of course combining CFOs and CHROs at this first event of the year should provide an additional layer of insight and perspective. It’s one event you shouldn’t miss!”
