Fabulous FEAT

Wow! I knew it would be great and it was even better than that! The audience went home completely inspired, encouraged to follow their hearts and to answer that calling for adventure - even those people who are not sporty and adventurous. Yay! - FEAT did what it was meant to.

The speakers were all incredible and because of the mix of topics, there really was something for everyone - and more.

As for the surprises... we had some super prizes from the event sponsors (envelopes were randomly hidden under chairs in the theatre), a top trials bike rider, Dylan Victor, who did some bouncing around on (and onto) the stage (and over people!) and a seven minute clip from Riaan Manser's new doccie about his kayak circumnavigation of Madagascar ('Madagascar Maverick').

And, as if 12 speakers and these treats were not enough, our MC for the night was none other than ultra running legend and 'King of Comrades Marathon', Bruce Fordyce. He's a great supporter of adventurous pursuits and he was blown away by the speakers.

I'm still buzzing, my inbox is going mad and I'm just so absolutely delighted by the success of the event. I could hardly get to sleep when I got to bed at 2am this morning because my mind was racing with tweaks to make and so many ideas for fun elements to include.

The next FEAT will be in Cape Town in early 2011 and it will be an annual event in October.
Thank you to the speakers: Alex, Andrew, Cobus, Darron, Kyle, Julian, Mandy, Marianne, Mike, Pete, Pierre and Ray - Wwwoooohoooo! You are all so inspirational.
