In this video, Mabunda shares how his childhood influenced his journey into business and led him to his success today.
‘It’s about leveraging the uniqueness of that background to my advantage,’ he says. ‘Having grown up in a business family meant that I’m able to understand the customer, the consumer.
‘And I learnt the power of never-ending learning. So, observing and seeing people take risks and being successful, learning from failure, and all of that has been in my background. But it also made me fall in love with business.
‘Put up your hand, be bold, make things happen, even when it’s not fashionable.’
