David Beckham is coming to South Africa the 14 November 2016 for the Discovery Leadership Summit. The soccer legend is among the key note speakers who will be speaking at the summit.

David is one of Britain's most iconic athletes and decorated football players of all time. He is the most capped outfield player in the history of the English game.

David began his soccer career playing for a number of local London-based clubs before entering Manchester United’s training academy at the age of 14. He signed his first contract with Manchester United when he was 16, and debuted with the team in 1992.

Married to Victoria and father to four children, Beckham’s fame extends far beyond the pitch.

The soccer guru also believes in giving back to those who are less fortunate. Over the past decade David has played a vital role in helping United National Children’s Fund to promote and protect the rights of the world’s most vulnerable children.

This year’s theme is titled “Inspiring minds”. This term is about engaging and empowering people to think beyond conventional boundaries.
