When it gets really tough some people turn to the pen to let it all loose. Noxolo Patience Shangase is a storyteller who is coated in rural goddessness, I know! She was raised by the big city light and finding her way through uncaged thoughts brought to life by a pen and a piece of paper.
She is a creative writer, Poet and Mother to the world’s greatest child. We talk about how she got into writing, her first piece of writing, and her short stories but most importantly where she draws her inspiration.

The MC was our very own Jon Gericke, his usual quick wit and charm certainly put a different but enjoyable spin on the evening.
A “best tweet” of the night competition was held and things got a little frisky. It started with the jeans that he was wearing and ended with people wanting to know what underpants he had on. All in good fun.
Alan Knott-Craig was the guest speaker on the night and he shared the idea behind his non-profit company Isizwe. It provides free wifi to the underprivileged areas in cities and towns, forming a unique partnership with Government in South Africa to make technology more accessible to a wider range of people.
UniLever and Liqorice where the big winners of the night.
With Brandy sponsored by Oudemeester and delicious food from the Sandton Convention Centre it was an enjoyable evening with a slightly competitive edge.
