[Biz Takeouts Podcast] 168: NetProphet 2016 and FlightSiteAgent

On Thursday, 31 March 2016, Biz Takeouts Marketing and Media Radio show host Warren Harding (@bizwazza) started the episode by looking at the highly anticipated, upcoming NetProphet 2016 event happening in Cape Town on 7 April 2016.
In 2009, the RAMP Foundation, recognising the need to build a culture of innovation, specifically in the area of technology, launched Africa’s best loved technology and innovation conference, NetProphet. We are joined by Adrian Bush, director of Ramp Foundation, to find out more about the event. We get a quick history of the NetProphet event, the objectives of the event and all the initiatives happening next week in Cape Town namely SparkUp Live, and NetProphet Works and FireSide. We also look at who should be attending the event and the speakers at this year’s event, as well as look at what 2017 holds for NetProphet, the not to be missed event on the tech calendar.

We are giving away 5 VIP tickets to NetProphet for next week, go check out my tweet on what to do.
