Habib Noorbhai
Breaking Pageant Stereotypes

We often place limits on what we can do and what we have the potential of achieving. We often underestimate how far one can go and the ultimatum of terminating or continuing. In every aspect of life, there is something called Stamina, not just in sport. The aim of this inspiring, enthused and motivated talk will be geared towards what and how you can see through your desired goals, accomplishments and targets.

Gary Hirson
Changing of the cables on Table Mountain

Every year Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company shuts down for their annual maintenance. Every 4 years the cables that haul the cable cars up and down are changed, every 6 years the cable cars are completely stripped and refurbished, and every 12 years the cable on which the cars run is re-tensioned. Since 2005 Gary has been the only photographer commissioned to photograph this engineering feat. Mid-winter cape weather and tight timelines add to the stresses of completing the task at hand, which has to be completed on time. Local artisans and Swiss engineers work side by side ensuring safe passage for future tourists

The Essential 3Cs to Future Proof your Career

Sophie Joans
What would you tell yourself at 18?

At 18, clueless about how to tackle adulthood, Sophie began to stop people on the street and ask them: If you could tell you at 18 one phrase of life advice, what would you say? After collecting thousands of quotes, from street sweepers to celebrities, she printed some of them onto A7 cards. Sophie continues to collect quotes, but now invites people to pick a card without looking, and 'see what the universe wants them to know'. On starting this project, the magic was watching people as they tried to condense their whole lives into one phrase of advice. Now it is also amazing watching people react to the card they chose, and how it is so often relevant to their lives.
