Event: upcoming July Heavy Chef Session, Johannesburg, with Don Packett, on speed

Don Packett is an entrepreneur, raconteur, stand-up comedian and co-founder of business consultancy, 21Tanks. Don's speciality is providing perspective and he's set to provide a healthy dose of it at the next Heavy Chef event on 18 July 2012 in Johannesburg.
Don will discuss how society's rapid adoption and fostering of technology is killing incremental progress. Although new inventions, gadgets and apps are said to make our lives increasingly easier, Packett examines if this is really the case, and why some people are taking a step back from technology.

21Tanks boasts great success in executing ideas through various perspectives and encouraging clients to 'do' when looking for solutions to a problem. Their motto describes their clear vision - "Ideas are not something you have, Ideas are something you do." The 21Tanks portfolio speaks for itself when it comes to big brand names. They have found solutions for names like Nokia, FNB, Investec, MultiChoice, Vespa and Media24.

Don Packett's professional approach to business, entwined with his love for comedy, makes for the balance. Don has recently also launched his book 'Do Ideas' featuring articles from some of South Africa's top entrepreneurs. You won't want to miss Don's views on the fast-paced world of technology.
