Musa Makhunga - Life After the Podium

The 1st ASPC African Sport Forum was recently hosted by the Association of Sport Performance Centres (ASPC) in partnership with the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Sport and Recreation. The event was also supported by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC), the eThekwini Municipality and the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The Forum shared knowledge and best practice, through the interactive programme of topics and related panel discussions, with approximately 600 sports leaders, administrators, coaches and athletes from KwaZulu-Natal and across the Continent over the course of the 2-day 1st ASPC African Sport Forum as well as the ASPC Workshop (Life After the Podium) which ran in parallel to Day 1 of the Forum.

Durban Chamber President, Musa Makhunga said that the Durban Chamber remains committed to empowering people to become active participants in our economy as well as providing access to networks and markets as well as platforms that are conducive with creating sustainable, inclusive economic growth.

"ASPC Workshop (Life After the Podium) was created by the Durban Chamber to empower athletes with the business and life skills to continue to support themselves and their families after their careers have ended is critical," said Makhunga.

"Athletes already have the right attributes and qualities that make people successful entrepreneurs and business leaders. All they need is to be coached and equipped with the right skills, tools and support to convert these attributes into business success," concluded Makhunga.
