We don't host speakers.
We host doers.
OUR FIRST HEAVY CHEF SESSION WAS WAAAAAY BACK IN 2007, ON A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT IN CAPE TOWN.
It was hosted in Mike and Nic Perk's flat, which then doubled as an agency studio. We hosted motivational speaker, facilitator and singer Verity. She told us how she used social media to crowdsource her first album and made it a hit, and then sang to us. Since then, we've hosted over 100 events over 10 years to over 10,000 audience members. Our speakers have ranged from international business leaders, to local hackers. Vinny Lingham, Xolisa Dyeshana, Gareth Cliff, Dave Duarte, Rich Mulholland, Justin Stanford, Reg Lascaris, Dr Taddy Blecher, Arthur Goldstuck and many more.
Below, some snaps of the epic awesomeness. Can you feel it? Can you?
