The Other End Of The Telescope

Taking a look at the absurdities of business, and how to do it right


  • Ian Russell, CEO
  • Rapelang Rabana, Entrepreneur
  • Valter Adão, Member, Singularity University
  • Happy Ntshingila, Entrepreneur

Coinciding with the launch of Ian Russell's book "The Other End Of The Telescope" Heavy Chef is proud to present two action packed events (Cape Town 23rd May 2019 and Johannesburg 28th May 2019) that will cast an in-depth lens on the absurdities, the idiosyncracies, the loneliness, the silliness and the downright backwardness of doing business in big business today. Ian and his team of co-contributors take a no-holds-barred look at corporate life and reveal why disruption is so rife today. This event is for entrepreneurs who want to disrupt the status quo, and for business leaders who don't want to be disrupted.
