The inaugural “Gentlemen in Business” event took place on 16 November 2017 at Uncle Tom’s Hall in Orlando, Soweto.
The highly successful event, dedicated to the recognition of gentlemen who operate in the townships, united 400+ male traders who enjoyed the networking and opportunities to discuss their experiences, gain valuable business information from relevant business leaders, explore products and potential partners and be inspired to operate responsibly in a very challenging sector and environment.
Spotong, with the support of our partners and sponsors, Mahindra, Club 10, British American Tobacco, Strongbow, Soweto Gold, Ricoffy and Lanco, gave our gentlemen a day to remember!
The gentlemen were inspired by motivational speaker, Mike Shamba, and were blessed with words of wisdom from Pastor Faith Lephato. The top-class entertainment provided by Blues and Friends and our traditional dancers had the crowd on their feet. A special thanks to Ndofaya Catering Academy for the delicious food prepared for our guests – it was enjoyed by everyone.
Many prizes were won and who can forget our gentlemen strutting their stuff in the Best Dressed Competition!
Every supplier that serviced the event was sourced from the local township community to ensure that the event not only impacts the invited guests, but their local communities as well.
We would like to thank our partners and sponsors, without whom the event would not have been possible.
