The Event

In 2018, the skill requirements of employees are changing exponentially. Thanks to technology, the world is evolving at a pace we’ve never experienced before in recorded history. And the pace is only going to get faster!

At the same time, the methods and techniques that companies are using to train their staff haven’t really changed very much over the last few years. We still attend the same type of conferences and workshops hoping to close a skills gap that is ever widening.

WE EITHER DISRUPT OR GET DISRUPTED!
Suits & Sneakers has been developing an “always on” learning mentality for just under two years as a result of the way the world is changing. Our idea centers around learning that happens in small doses every day instead of massive learning spikes every so often.

As a result, we have launched a new learning series called “Real Life MBA” where a conference is just the starting point but the learning continues long after you’ve left the event on the day.

HERE’S HOW “REAL LIFE MBA” WORKS:
Most conferences require you to watch one speaker AFTER another. The “Real Life MBA” has several speakers presenting their talk in different rooms at the same time per time slot.

It’s up to you to decide which one of the speakers you watch LIVE in that session but either way, all the talks are recorded and placed online after the event which means you never miss a talk. This allows you to pick which topics are most important to watch LIVE based on the needs of your business. In other words, you create your own curriculum!

After the event, we work with your company to create a project that must be completed by your staff. The project is based on watching several LIVE talks and then watching the remainder of the talks online after the event. The learning is based over several weeks instead of one day!


WHO ARE THE 16 SPEAKERS AVAILABLE TO WATCH ON THE DAY?
  • Marnus Broodryk (founder of The Beancounter / author)
  • Fraser Lamb (CEO of McCann South Africa)
  • Catherine Constantinides (environmentalist, social activist)
  • Mike Sharman (co-founder of Restroviral Communications)
  • Erik Kruger (founder of BetterMan & BetterX)
  • Mark Sham (founder of Suits & Sneakers)
  • Mike Stopforth (founder & CEO of Cerebra)
  • Dr. Martin Kruger (founder of Balance)
  • Stafford Masie (former CEO of Google SA)
  • John Vlismas (SA comedian)
  • York Zucchi (founder of Join the Equation)
  • Colin Chapman (founder of Prospectr)
* 4 more speakers to be announced shortly!

HOW IT WORKS?
There are 6 time slots on the day: 08h30, 09h30, a short tea break, 10h45, 11h45, lunch, 13h30 and 14h30. Each talk is 55min and then there is 5min to change over. Most talks will last 40-45min with the remainder of the time left for Q&A!

There are 4 rooms with a different speaker in each room at each time slot. So our guests have to choose which 1 of the 4 talks they're going to at each time slot. 

Each talk is recorded so even though a guest can only watch 4 out of the 16 talks on the day, they get to watch the others online after the event through our online university!

WHAT THEMES WILL BE COVERED ON THE DAY?
We have asked all our speakers to create content based on the following themes:
  • Leadership
  • Entreprenership
  • Future of Marketing/Advertising/Sales
  • Innovation/Future Technologies
  • Abstract (Health/Wellness, Politics, Music, Art, etc.)
