The reviews of Stream Africa are unanimous:
"Stream Africa was one of the most exceptional events I have ever attended. The organisation, the events, the people, the diversity of the agenda, the networking and the spirit with which people engaged made it a special gathering. The learnings and the connections I made created a memorable event... World class in every respect and it was just what we needed here in Africa." Nick Terry, TMarc
"Superb intersection of creativity and intellect" Mike Wronski, Fuseware
"Can’t really find the words to describe how amazing this unConference was, but can confirm what everyone else has said about it: unique, different, insightful and so much fun." Arturo Franco, Infusive
