Nelson Mandela’s legacy of dignity and freedom for all inspires people across the world to continually seek to become a better version of themselves. The foundation of Mandela’s legacy is the virtues by which he led his own life.

The Chairman’s Recital celebrates these virtues through music, narration and poetry in a powerful and emotive five-part series, and our intimate annual black tie gatherings are attended by the world’s most influential ambassadors of Madiba’s legacy. Our purpose is to inspire our guests and the world to rediscover and reignite the Mandela within themselves, and to put his virtues into practice in their daily lives to become a better version of themselves. A percentage of the proceeds is donated to the Nelson Mandela foundation to execute on their projects.
