“I attended the Global Summit in Cape Town, South Africa, a few years ago. As time passed, I am now able to see how the discussions then, as well as the thought leaders’ views and predictions, have tracked the reality of the last few years.I cannot imagine any other single forum where the diversity of attendees and the relevance of discussions could be better. The opportunities to engage with peers and to hear from the qualified speakers, who share knowledge with such authority and first-hand experience, is invaluable for us, as we look to accelerate our growth and relevance for the medium term. ” – Shaun Laffer, CEO, Sunpac
