One&Only Cape Town 2015 Guest Speaker Series – Will Travers

CELEBRATING its fourth year, the One&Only Guest Speaker series commences in May and continues until October. Thanks to the lineup of fascinating adventurers, conservationists and survivalists, this year’s talks will no doubt once again provide inspiration and motivation for its audiences to go out and live their own lives to the fullest.  

One&Only Cape Town will host guests for the speaker series in the resort’s impressive ballroom, after which they will enjoy a sumptuous buffet dinner at Reuben’s, the resort’s popular dining venue. The cost per person including dinner (excluding beverages) is R295 per person per Talk.

From the likes of shark and wildlife specialist Chris Fallows to Trans-Atlantic and South Pole adventurer Pete van Kets, the speakers for the series have been selected for their unique feats and expertise. Each interactive presentation and talk is crammed with personal anecdotes, fascinating insight into equally fascinating subject matter, motivational messaging and snapshots into worlds otherwise unknown to but a few.

The first speaker is Will Travers from The Born Free Foundation on the 17th of May 2015.

The organization is involved in many campaigns, from primate survival projects to Zoo Check, the international operation to halt captive animal suffering.
