Ignite Talks

What's an Ignite talk? Four minutes on stage to talk about an idea, an interest or a passion. Our version is 15 slides that rotate automatically after 15 seconds. It's fun, it's fast, and the format forces you to really think about what you want to say.

Game? Let us know asap. This event fills up every year, so the only way to confirm a slot is to post your idea title and brief summary below.

To do a great Ignite talk, tell us about something you're passionate about, something that others should know, or some unique bit of knowledge or insight that you can impart. (And please don't do a pitch or your company creds)

Who's Mess is this Anyway ?

The levels of unemployment are rising, the education system is sub-par and young South Africans have had enough. How are we going to plug the gap between having the most digitally-abled companies (we rank at 9th in the world) and a completely under-skilled workforce. Hanging out with some young people has given me new perspective and I will be sharing their views and hopefully brainstorming some solutions on how we can change this narrative.
