Everything has changed. Around the world, confusion reigns. We’re in the age of the Great Resignation, and borders have become meaningless as CVs are exchanged via inboxes across continents. Since COVID swept the world, corporate titans are desperately trying to entice workers to return. In South Africa, we’re trying to make sense of it all in a region marked by the largest Gini Coefficient in the world.

Heavy Chef has invited two community leaders, Selebogo Molefe, founder of The Hookup Dinner (THUD) and Executive Director of Lifesgud Global Investments, and Paul Keursten, CEO of Workshop17, winner of ‘World’s Best Coworking Space' at the 2021 Global Startup Awards, to our stage to unpack The New Workplace. A must-attend for entrepreneurs who are growing a purpose-led team, or a manager aiming to settle your staff into meaningful rhythms. There will be Backsberg wine, Sir Fruit juices and Goodleaf CBD waters, plus lots of inspiring people and great networking. Get your seats quick.
