The biggest South African disrupting summit of all time

16-17 November 2017, at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit and International Convention Centre, Johannesburg


What does disrupt mean to you?

In a world where insurgents are driving disruption at the frontline of technology, business and beyond, we had an opportunity to ask a couple of industry leaders what "disrupt" means to them.

"This month I’ll attend BCX Disrupt, a technology focused conference in Johannesburg. I’m intrigued to unpack what disrupt means in the context of South Africa, learning how to build sustainable competencies in a disruptive world, as well as hearing how thoughts of speakers like Malcom Gladwell and will.i.am can be applied to South Africa", says Mikael Hanan, former COO and founding member of Superbalist.com

For me it’s about rethinking fundamental assumptions.". Read more on Baratang's view of disruption here.
