Guest Speakers

We have specifically selected these speakers to impart their expertise and experiences, within the hospitality sector, to assist in stimulating growth within the tourism sector.

It was so famously said by Benjamin Franklin - "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." 

THINC Africa speakers will teach and involve you in what it takes to be successful on the African continent and you will leave the conference with something or someone that you did not know when you first arrived.
