USB flaunts SA’s top speaking talent at Markex 2015

The Unique Speaker Bureau (USB) has confirmed that it will once again be showcasing the best and most well-known of South Africa’s local speaker talent, as well as a number of new, up-and-coming speakers, at the forthcoming Markex 2015 expo.

With open sessions to be hosted from 13:00 to 15:00 on each of the show’s three days, exclusive invitation only VIP Sessions will be run in the mornings from 07:30 to 12:30. Presentations have also been streamed to ensure that each day’s sessions have a powerful, targeted focus.

Day one’s speakers all fall within the business and leadership category, including highly regarded business strategist, Michael Jackson; change, communication and social business pundit, Ryan Hogarth; Kali Ilunga, one of the Mail & Guardian’s Top 200 young South Africans; Southern African Speaker Hall of Fame inductee, Justin Cohen; and business strategy whizz, Vusi Thembekwayo.

Day two’s speakers will deliver hope and inspiration to listeners, featuring successful entrepreneurs who have overcome the seemingly impossible to build their businesses. Lee Swan, South African businesswoman and extreme adventurer; world-renowned mountaineer, Sean Disney; mentalist, Gilan Gork; and ‘big, big dreamer’, Miles Kubheka will all take to the stage to share their stories.

On the third and final day of Markex 2015, the USB Showcase looks at how to help businesses ‘make their mark’ through self-branding. Here, one of South Africa’s most respected broadcasters, Debora Patta will be joined by top calibre branding experts including talent management specialist, Natalie Singer and Kate Moodley, who was nominated as one of Africa’s most influential women in business and government for 2014.

‘The USB Showcase is a key feature of the Markex show and proves to be a major draw card for our visitors,’ explained Joshua Low, event director from Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery. ‘This year’s event will feature some of South Africa’s more sought after speakers, providing attendees with valuable business insight.’

Markex 2015 is set to take place from 2 to 4 June 2015 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg. For more information and to pre-register for your free entry to the event, please visit
