It's a movement

We’re South Africa’s conference for catalysts, nurturing the leaders of tomorrow. Our topics cover entrepreneurship, innovation, economy and local issues, presenting ideas that motivate and bridge the gap in learning.

Technology is disrupting the status quo. Our world is changing. It is a turbulent time. The speed at which we need to learn to keep up with a country’s needs requires a major shift in mindset.

Suits & Sneakers is about action, a mechanism to improve the learning process and quicken your ability to make connections. We each possess cognitive techniques for processing verbal and visual material. We believe that the capacity for meaningful learning increases when we tap into the power of both. That is our role: to inform.

This May, a select group of founders, innovators and motivational leaders who drive change across the South Africa are coming together in Sandton for Suits & Sneakers 5. They’ll be looking to impart their ideas on how to learn, grow and thrive in the world we’re living through.
