The importance of leadership can’t be overlooked, and no one knows that better than President of Toronto Raptors and co-founder of Giants of Africa, Masai Ujiri.
With the IGNITE 2021 Elections coming up, it’s the perfect time to talk with Ujiri about the importance of strong leadership and teamwork. After all, it’s what led him and the Toronto Raptors to their first NBA championship win in 2019!
Ujiri was born and raised in Nigeria, and pursued his passion for basketball as a career, ultimately leading him to become the first African-born President and General Manager of any North American professional sports franchise.
During this Fireside Chat, hosted by Deepa Prashad, Ujiri will give you the tools you need to become your own champion. He’ll tell you what it truly means to be a leader, the importance of adaptability, collaboration, and evolving as a person. IGNITE’s own Ercole Perrone joins Ujiri and Prashad.
