SAACI Western Cape Branch AGM
- This event has passed.
Dear Valued SAACI member,
This communication serves as a notification to advise you of the upcoming Western Cape Branch Annual General Meeting for members of SAACI in the region, which will be held on Tuesday, 30th May 2023 at Newlands Conference Centre, Newlands Cricket Ground.
Purpose of meeting:
The Branch AGM is an opportunity for the branch committee to share highlights of work done within the region over the past year.
The association’s CEO, Glenton de Kock, will provide an update on the state of the meetings and events industry.
Guest Speaker – Dr Randall Ortel:
Manenberg born and raised Dr Randall Ortel is a physician who has over 40 000 followers on Tiktok as he uses the app as a tool to make medicine accessible and easy to understand. He did his undergraduate degree at Stellenbosch University but his journey to become our favourite Tiktok doctor was not always easy.
While he received merit bursaries to cover his tuition costs, to cover his other expenses while studying he worked as a taxi driver. He drove a taxi on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday when he did not have exams and studied six hours every evening from Monday to Thursday. As a result of his involvement in the community, he says many around him regard him as the first Manenberg doctor.
While the community might see him as the first Manenberg doctor, he does not want to be the last and has set up a foundation to work with the community to help other youngsters in Manenberg to pursue a future in medicine.
So be sure to secure your space!
