The Event

It has been a long time coming, but finally, we are making our way to the Mother City!

Cape Town is home to a growing and diverse entrepreneurship scene. The lifestyle and concentration of tech innovation and, lets be honest, money, makes it an attractive place for entrepreneurs. However, we know that no matter how rosey it may seem on the outside, entrepreneurs still need to be informed, equipped and inspired consistently to continue to be the best version of themselves. Enter, Entrepreneurship To The Point.

In the seven years eTTP has been in existence, we have made friends with some of Cape Town’s most aspirational and successful entrepreneurs and business people, and we want to bring their knowledge and insights to you in 2020. We believe in deconferencing conferencing, cutting out the fluff while relentlessly pursuing stories of black excellence.

At this session, we will take lessons from the powerful story of Professor Shirley Zinn; academic, business woman and author. We will also give you the opportunity to introduce yourself to the room, network, and make new and fruitful connections.

About Prof. Shirley Zinn

Prof. Shirly Zinn was born and raised in the Cape Flats and made it her mission to prove that the typical story of a girl from the Cape Flats didn’t have to be hers. She embarked on a relentless pursuit of academic excellence, even against insurmountable odds. Once she had done that, she set out to conquer the world of business. Prof. Zinn is the founder of Shirley Zinn Consulting. The firm provides consulting and advisory services in HR, Transformation, Leadership and Education. She is also the former Group Head of Human Resources at Woolworths Holdings Limited. Prior to this, she was Deputy Global Head of Human Resources for the Standard Bank Group.
