Clem Sunter’s scenario: Not all roads lead to Rome
In the ‘80s, he coined the phrase the “High Road” to espouse his philosophy. The “High Road” was if we would use negotiation through peace while the “Low Road” was if there was confrontation.
In his talk, he said that thankfully in the’90s South Africa chose to take the “High Road”.
Sunter and his colleague have since written a trilogy about scenario and strategy planning, which were immediate bestsellers.
They also predicted that there would be great acts of terror on American soil, going as far as sending a message to (then) President George W Bush a few weeks before 9/11.
Sunter has also been very involved in the awareness campaign of HIV/Aids and helping to develop young entrepreneurs.
