The Healthcare Leadership Incubator is an initiative by the Board of Healthcare Funders of Southern Africa (BHF) to develop and support middle management in the healthcare industry to hone strategic thinking around industry issues by providing a platform to network with industry peers and to learn from some of South Africa’s top business minds.

The current leaner, tougher business environment is driving managers to acquire stronger skills and gain a deeper understanding of the key strategic issues facing business and industry. The forums provide an opportunity for managers to interact and learn from some of the brightest business minds in South Africa, opportunities that are typically limited to C-suite execs.

BHF Healthcare Leadership Incubators are designed for managers to openly debate and discuss key issues and challenges in the workplace and the industry, promote and share ideas, and identify areas that they can improve on. Each session is hosted by mentors and business people from within and outside the healthcare industry who share their insights and counsel on burning industry issues, regulation and business challenges, as well as how their own career journeys have evolved.
