WATCH: Ngubane & Co's Sihle Ndzimbomvu at Finance Indaba 2017

Sihle Ndzimbomvu's life story inspired attendees at the biggest finance conference on the African continent

Every so often, you hear a life story that both inspires you to raise your game and challenges prevailing perspectives. Sihle Ndzimbomvu’s narrative is one such case.

 

An audit manager at Ngubane & Co, she delivered an enthralling speech at the Finance Indaba at the Sandton Convention Centre in October last year, detailing her rise from the challenges of growing up in Umzimkhulu, a village in rural KwaZulu-Natal, to achieving her dream of becoming a chartered accountant with the support of small black-owned accounting firms.

 

 

“As a child in a rural area, walking along dusty roads, I never realised I’d be standing at the Finance Indaba, telling not only my story but the story of a black child. Looking back, I don’t regret the path I had to take to get where I am today. This is the story of how you can change your life by achieving big.”
