As you may have noticed we have been rather busy over the past couple of months, bringing you some great speakers to talk about relevant industry topics. In June we hosted Alistair Fairweather, from the Mail and Guardian, to speak to our Johannesburg, digital community about The Future of Digital Publishing. In July we hosted two sessions, one for each of our favourite cities. The first session was hosted in Cape Town, with two respected digital fiends; tech entrepreneur Dan Bowyer and Andy Gilder from MACHINE Agency. These two speakers presented a context- flipping angle on the future of digital, which sees the industry move away from its current, content-obsessed saturation and into real-life realms that add value to your life. Our second July session was hosted in Johannesburg, with Jason Xenopoulos from NATIVE, reporting back from the Cannes film festival with his annual presentation, Cannes in a Can. Jason’s talk unpacked the latest global trends and emerging technologies. All sessions were thoroughly enjoyable thanks to our amazing speakers and generous sponsors; Deloittes, Backsberg Wine, Channel Mobile and Nokia. Look out for our next session on the 21 August 2013. Sign up to this event has not yet opened, but get ready for your invite because it is one that you don’t want to miss! To hear about our sessions first you can sign up to our newsletter here.
