A Vehicle for Change: Thato Makgolane

Name: Thato Makgolane

Talk Title: “A Vehicle for Change”

Notes: Faculty of Commerce (Sauder School); B.Comm; Accounting; Year!4

Topic:The Arc Initiative is a business and leadership project started with the help of Jeff Kroeker (accounting professor) and saw a team of 12 UBC and Sauder students, alumni, faculty and business community members come to my hometown in South Africa to share, learn and build two way life changing stories. Started in May 2010 and rolled out over the summer, the project was based on the philosophy that by sharing knowledge and stories, we not only build a base for creativity but we also inspire and empower each other to go beyond what we thought were limits.


Filmed by Craig Ross at TEDx Terry talks 2010 (October 2nd, 2010). Video edited by David Ng.

    One video every day for the next 8 weekdays – that’s about two weeks right?

    The videos are all pretty much ready (only 2 to edit)… Just rolling them out in a staggered fashion since they also need to be uploaded to the TEDx channel, etc.
