By Sowetan LIVE | Aug 25, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 1 ]

The National Achievers Congress; in its 22nd year is bringing three of some of the world's best speakers and coaches to Sandton.

Chris Gardner, Les Brown and Tom Hopkins will be headlining the 2 day event taking place on the 30th and 31st of August 2014.

About the speakers:

Chris Gardner

Chris Gardner is the author of the book, "The Pursuit of Happyness," a New York Times and Washington Post #1 bestseller based on his life story. A series of adverse circumstances in the early 1980's left Gardner homeless in San Francisco and the sole guardian of his toddler son.

Unwilling to give up on his dreams of success, he climbed to the top of the financial industry ladder from the very bottom. It is the inspiration behind the acclaimed movie "The Pursuit of Happyness". Now, his aim is to help others achieve their full potential through his speaking engagements and media projects.

Les Brown

Les Brown is one of the world's most renowned and highly sought after motivational speakers. In elementary school Les was mistakenly declared, "Educably mentally retarded."

However, his tenacity and belief in his ability unleashed a course of amazing achievements from sanitation worker to broadcast station manager to state representative in Ohio. His life and message, that with proper guidance and training anyone can begin achieving the things they desire now, is a true testament to that belief.

Tom Hopkins

Tom Hopkins carries the standard as a master sales trainer and is recognized as the world's leading authority on sales. Over 4,000,000 people on five continents have attended Tom's high-energy live seminars.

He is the author of fourteen books, including "How to Master the Art of Selling," which has sold over 1.4 million copies worldwide and is considered a must-have reference guide for top selling producers in every field of sales.
