Suits & Sneakers 3
Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton, South Africa
Following the major success of the first two Suits & Sneakers events which took place in July and November 2015, we would like to invite you to join us for the third edition!
WHAT IS SUITS & SNEAKERS?
Suits & Sneakers is a “human development” event aimed at every living, breathing human being in South Africa. The model is similar to the very popular TED talks held all around the world.
There will be FIVE speakers on this particular night who present excellent content with an emphasis on masterful story telling. Our audience must be gripped from start to finish. There is no place to simply regurgitate the words from a PowerPoint presentation. Each speaker has between 20-30 minutes to share an impactful mentality!
17h00 - 18h30: Registration, South African business showcase & network pods
18h30 - 21h30: Speakers dazzle the audience
21h30 - 22h00: South African showcase and network pods
SOUTH AFRICAN BUSINESS SHOWCASE
Here's the deal. Most people arrive at an event like this, register and then just wait around so we've decided to give several unique businesses which we will handpick a chance to showcase who they are and what they do!
Often times, businesses lack a platform of this nature where they get to tell the world what they do. The idea is for you as delegates to arrive a bit earlier and support these guys by making an effort to find out what they do. Big things start from these little conversations.

***Final speaker to be announced shortly!
Attendees will have the chance to spend the last part of the evening networking with fellow attendees. This will be done with some structure via network pods.
A network pod will consist of a facilitator and nine attendees. Each person will have a minute to explain who they are and what they do. Attendees can participate in one or more network pods but they rule may not stay at the same network pod. This forces attendees to network with different people each time. Network pods will pause for five minutes after they are done and then start again.
If you have meet someone interesting at a network pod, you might wanna skip the next session and approach that person to learn more about them. You could skip all the network pods in the first place and simply chat to some people you know. The choice is yours.
