Established thought-leaders from both the corporate and government worlds attended our previous events innovaBRICS & beyond (the predecessor to Brexit & Global Expansion Summit). Here’s the feedback they gave about our last event.

Iain Macmillan, Partner, Head of UK M&A and New Growth, Deloitte.
"We take this event very seriously because we have to showcase what South Africa is, in this space. We needed to look at our own resources to make sure we invest in research and development." Faith Muthambi, Communications Minister, South African Government.
