Chris Gibbons: Speaker of Note

Chris is one of South Africa's best-known journalists with a background in business and management. 35 years of experience in SA radio, TV, and print, has given Chris the opportunity to interview the likes of Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk.

As a businessman, Chris was Group MD of SA's largest illustrated publishing house, New Holland Struik, and also reached the board of the country's most successful radio group, Primedia Broadcasting.

As a speaker and facilitator, Chris is one of South Africa's most experienced in the industry. His latest keynote address deals with Leadership, Language, Communication and Power. It covers how leaders communicate, what an analysis of their language reveals about them, and how some become addicted to power.

Of particular value to conference organisers, is his ability to handle a live audience asking tough questions of panelists. He also brings his extensive business experience to bear in these circumstances; his own comments and questions add depth and context to the event.

"No better place to start the festive season" the 12 Apostles proclaim.

According to the 12 Apostles (hotel), there is no better place to start the festive season than at their Leopard bar overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It really is the ideal location to enjoy sundowners and live music. What better way to celebrate a hot summers night than with their signature coctail aptly named "Atlantic Sunset".

Appreciate the finer things in life and join them on the first Wednesday of every month for their unique new guided ‘Art-Tea’ Tours of the hotel’s art collection, followed by a scrumptious High Tea served in the Leopard Bar.

Back by popular demand, they will once again host their monthly Astronomy Gastronomy evenings until March, while their 2014 Food and Wine Pairing dinners end on a high note with Bouchard Finlayson on 28 November.
