sneak peek of our speaker line up
Peter van Kets is one of South Africa's top extreme adventurers who shares the lessons he's learnt as an international keynote speaker. Few people have endured the harsh realities of nature that he has triumphed. Peter has rowed across the Atlantic twice and trekked unsupported to the South Pole, taken part in an epic dog sled expedition, and has completed 3 Beyond Expeditions focusing on southern and central Africa. You will hear stories about survival, courage, perseverance, passion, loneliness, tenacity, grit, amazing teamwork and the will to win and will no doubt be taken on a powerful life-altering journey, changing the way you think about yourself and your business.
Andrew Smith is the co-founder and CEO of South Africa's award-winning leading kitchen and home retailer, Yuppiechef. Andrew founded Yuppiechef in 2006 with Shane Dryden as a part-time venture while they continued to run a small web agency. Yuppiechef has since grown into one of South Africa's leading omnichannel retailers, and in 2017, announced the move into physical retail with their first store in Cape Town. More recently, in 2021, Yuppiechef was acquired by Mr Price Group, a change that excites Andrew as he continues to lead the company with business partner Shane. Join us as we hear first hand from founder, Andrew Smith of the journey of Yuppiechef.
Caster Semenya is a winner. The 31 year old South African is the two-time women's 800m Olympic champion, a three-time 800m World champion and a double Commonwealth Games middle distance gold medalist. Caster lives with a condition that has put her under constant scrutiny by the Athletics World. Caster will be sharing her remarkable journey with us of how she dreamed of being the greatest! And with the resilience instilled in her by her family and her community, she powered her way through the criticism of her doubters, turning the negativity she experienced into positivity.
