About this event


We have some bad news. Unfortunately Stafford Masie cancelled on our event tomorrow.

This is the first time in 30 events that this happened and the first time a speaker cancelled in such a short notice.

The event will still happen as we have two epic Durban entrepreneurs on stage (details below)!! 

Since we understand the inconvenience this is causing, we giving all those who bought tickets already a free VIP ticket for the event tomorrow worth R90. We will send the ticket codes via email. 

We really apologise for this.
