Post Event

Adept was once again pleased to host the latest in our SA Leaders’ Breakfast seminar series for over 50 of SA’s IT, business and government community at the Lion Hotel.

We all enjoyed a hot egg & bacon breakfast, before presentations commenced. Rohan Bishop (Adept Technology) advised us how business can work with government for improvement, while Dr Eva Balan-Vnuk (Department of Premier and Cabinet) had everyone engaged on ICT happenings and future strategies in government. With an open Q&A session afterwards, everyone had a chance to pick their brains even further!

Most guests stayed on to chat and network among like-minded individuals, with some more coffee and pastries.

We look forward to continuing to contribute to the future sustainability of the ICT and business economy in SA and seeing you at our next event in 2019.
