GEOFF BLACKWELL AND THE NELSON MANDELA FOUNDATION WEIGH IN
Geoff Blackwell weighed in on the documentary.
“This series was conceived while Ruth Hobday and I were working on a book about Nelson Mandela and his prison letters back in 2018. As we worked to absorb 27 years of Mandela’s personal correspondence, reflecting on his brave and selfless commitment to the welfare of others, we were simultaneously confronted by a news cycle relentlessly focused on certain international politicians behaving in precisely the opposite way— shamelessly pursuing their own self-interest, using tactics of division and misinformation to serve power and not the people”.
“This contrast cemented our resolve to honor Mandela’s values by surfacing the stories of leaders who distinguish themselves through their moral courage, the conviction of their ideals and values, and their prioritization of others”.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation stated that they feel there is a crisis of leadership at many levels of society.
“The Nelson Mandela Foundation is proud to announce the launch of a new Netflix Series on effective leadership, in collaboration with Blackwell & Ruth and Archewell Productions. Live to Lead is a seven-episode series of compelling interviews with some of the world’s most respected and effective leaders from different walks of life, inspired by the legacy of Nelson Mandela”.
“Over the past few decades, we’ve seen a proliferation of destructive leaders, who, for instance, control power by closing borders, disseminating misinformation, and stoking fear of people considered to be ‘other’. We feel that there is a crisis of leadership at many societal levels globally”.
