All proceeds from both events will be going to Christel House. Here is all you need to know!

Mark Sham, founder and CEO of Suits & Sneakers, would like to invite you to attend one of two very special events that he is putting together to raise funds for Christel House. Mark will be presenting the newest edition of his most popular keynote called “Back to the Future” in Johannesburg and Cape Town in October. The aim is to get 1,000 people to attend each event.

FORMAT FOR BOTH EVENTS:

Mark Sham will be the only speaker at both events and he will be presenting the newest edition of his most popular keynote called “Back to the Future” where he explains how the world is changing faster than ever as well as what we all need to do, both in our personal and professional lives, in order to thrive in this ever-changing world.

Having presented this keynote several hundred times, Mark believes everyone who attends will walk away with a shift in their perspective and we will have all done something amazing for Christel House at the same time!

There will also be some very special guests conducting MC duties at both events.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN ON THE NIGHT:

“Back to the Future” is divided into two parts. Mark always starts by giving his audience some context and setting the scene:

  • How/why we are living through the most unique time in human history
  • How/why time and change is started to speed up at a rate we have never seen before
  • At the same time, humans are not generally well adapted to this rate of change
  • Why the evolution of digitisation and technology is changing our world forever
  • How exponential change and convergence impacts every human being on earth whether they like it or not
  • Mark offers several real life examples of these types of shifts

Once the audience understands the true nature of where we are at, then we explore the following themes:

  • Why the single most important skill you can have is to learn, unlearn, and relearn
  • How the current education system is failing individuals and companies alike
  • What we need to do to adapt in this new future
  • Why experiementation is so critical to our success in this new world
  • How we finally get to choose what we do in life for the first time ever
  • Understanding what skills we need to learn and who we need to become to thrive
  • How to prepare our kids for the future

WHY IS MARK SHAM HOSTING THESE EVENTS AND WHO IS CHRISTEL HOUSE?

This is an organisation that is very close to our hearts because they educate almost 1,000 of the poorest kids in the Western Cape at NO COST.

To give you some additional perspective, only households that earn LESS than R1500 per month can even apply. Once accepted, Christel House also feeds all the kids during the day (breakfast and lunch) and they have a bus service to get the kids to school and back each day. They even have full-time nurses and social workers/counselors available for the kids because they come from some pretty harsh backgrounds. They have a 100% Matric pass rate and almost 70% of the graduates meet the requirements for admission to bachelor’s degree programs.

South Africa has the highest levels of inequality in the world and that impacts every person that lives in this country. If we want to fix this situation, we have to educate the masses so that they can add to the economy in a meaningful way.

Mark Sham originally started Suits & Sneakers to help fix some of the many education issues in South Africa. His goal was to create a re-imagined schooling system that offered quality education at no cost to those who need it the most but can’t afford it. This is an organisation that is doing just that and when Mark discovered them in 2018, he decided to do everything he can to help them.
