Keynote Speakers

Don Packett

Don Packett

Speaker, MC, Comedian

Don brings a fresh perspective to conferences and events by sharing his experiences with audiences, related to a number of hot topics, assisting CEOs and organisational leaders to drive specific messages home. Every talk provides educational and entertaining anecdotes, tales, metaphors, analogies and a healthy dose of recapitulation for good measure.


Building a comedy career balancing between underground clubs and big, flashy, corporate stages has built Don’s style into one focusing on everyday preoccupations that make him, and now you, think a little differently about life, love and everything in between.

With a wealth of deep‐set knowledge and appreciation for the corporate beast, Don is hellbent on ensuring that the gap between organisational content and entertainment is not only bridged, but firmly set in order for all audiences to engage with speakers’ content as effectively as possible.

Having co-built an innovation consultancy a decade ago, and working closely with organisations on their strategic intent for twice as long, Don’s magic power is to not only ensure objectives are measured and met in facilitated engagements, but to also ensure that participants are pushed to their paces on the road to excellence.


Pieter Theron

Pieter Theron

Partner, PwC South Africa

Digital Transformation evangelist for metals, mining, minerals, petrochemicals and industrial manufacturing industry with good business sense for new opportunities. Experience alone is not a guarantee for near perfect performance all the time. I am an Activator/Shaper, impatient for action and can turn thoughts into action swiftly and effectively. This sense of urgency gives new life to a team and is ideally suited for start-up or turn-around situations.


My Strategic talent enables me to easily sort through clutter, generate alternatives and find the best way forward without falling into analysis paralysis. To move is to think and therefore I excel at building on someone’s idea or strategy instead of designing the wheel from scratch.

My Competitor talent enables me to tackle a wide variety of challenging or demanding assignments, overcome obstacles and to forge ahead irrespective the adversity or resistance. This mental toughness and courage of conviction enables me to search for truth, take action and pursue my goals with vigour.

I don’t believe in mediocre; therefore my Maximizer talent enables me to turn something strong into excellent. I like to associate with and lead excellent people to achieve a goal rather than to direct junior team members on detail activities.

I am a good straight forward Communicator that likes to explain, describe or present publicly. I do not avoid debates as I like to persuade others and equally like to be persuaded by good reason.

He then turned to R&D on Artificial Intelligence applied in Process Control and decision support systems. He was involved in several large European research programs in process alarm analysis and diagnosis, Fieldbus standards definition, water treatment plant advanced SCADA systems and model-based emergency decision support systems.


His team was one of the early adopters of object programming for industrial applications in the early eighties. He then moved to industrial projects and spent approximately 10 years as project manager and project director in several Systems Integration companies including: Alcatel and Cegelec (Water / Wastewater management, building automation, and alarming systems in Facility Management Systems). In 1996 he joined Wonderware, where he occupied different positions in relation with either large projects and/or strategic customers.
