Venue Review - Randlords & Lamunu June 2014

It's amazing that in the heart of the Braamfontien you are still able to find beauty. At the Randlords & Lamunu venue experiences in June this year a selection of EON members had an opportunity to experience these firsthand.

We started at the Lamunu meeting room with a little welcome snack before we took a short walking tour of the new refurbished and very colourful Braamfontien. The area really has been on the up lately and is looking good.

After our walk we arrived at Randlords. The venue has a view to die for, as it overlooks the Johannesburg skyline. This venue is perfect for your end of year functions. The food at the venue is truly amazing, we got to taste a variety of dishes that the venue has to offer.

Overall it was a day to remember with good people, good food, a beautiful view and amazing host staff.

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.

Ndumiso Lindi and Comedy at its Best

Ndumiso Lindi hails from Zwelitsha, a small township next to King Williams Town in Eastern Cape. Comedy has always been a part of his life, being raised by parents who believed that humor is second in importance only to discipline.

In 2004, during the Vodacom Comedy Campus Tour, Ndumiso plucked up the courage to get up on stage in front of the entire Tech and try out 3 minutes of comedy. He was amazed at the feeling one gets when you connect with an audience through laughter. Armed with the knowledge that stand-up comedy can effect people and the way they think and feel meant that Ndumiso was ready to take the plunge and give the comedy world his best shot. He worked with the "Comedy All Stars" and started performing at the Armchair Theatre as well as numerous other Cape Town venues. Ndumiso's persistence and hard work finally paid off when he won a trip to London as part of the "Red Bull Comedy All Stars Comedy Challenge". Ndumiso's material is based on everyday life, the things that surround us, how we differ as people and how unique black people can be, especially the new generation.
