DameConcepts on Friday 06 October hosted Sfiso Tshabalala’s book launch ‘Discover Your Entrepreneurial Genius’ at the EPF – Empire Partner Foundation, Illovo, Sandton. The event was sponsored by EPF’s Tech Fund, TechDailyPost and NoJokesComedy. 

The sold out event was well attended by who’s who of Johannesburg and Pretoria elites, that included the C-suites, business executives, professionals, and entrepreneurs. Our very own Founder and CEO Rethabile Mohlala made sure everything ran smoothly as a program director and producer of the event. 

The event was more like a celebration than your typical book launch, it was full of food, wine, networking, entertainment. The book launch also included a panel discussion with a stellar lineup featuring entrepreneurs, Nathan Marimuthu, Joanne Govendor, Aubrey Motshela, Barry Gonin and the man of the moment Sfiso Tshabalala.

During his speech, Sfiso said  “Our work embodies a higher purpose. Whether we know it or not, we’re a conduit for the universe. Material is allowed through us. If we are a clear channel, our intention reflects the intention of the cosmos.”

“Most creators think of themselves as the conductor of the orchestra. If we zoom out of our small view of reality, we function more as an instrumentalist in a much larger symphony the universe is orchestrating. We may not have a great understanding of what this magnum opus is because we only see the small part we play.”

“The bee, attracted by the scent of the flower, lands on one then another, inadvertently enabling reproduction. Should the bee go extinct, not just flowers but birds, small mammals, and humans would likely also cease to exist. It’s fair to assume that the bee doesn’t know its role in this interconnected puzzle and in preserving the balance of nature. The bee is simply being,” he added.
