One of the reasons I love going to conferences and events is because of the people I get to meet there. These conferences bring together people with similar passions and interests. They unite fellow sparks under one banner.

Last year I went to three major conference and at each of these events, the speakers were fantastic. But what I really got out of the events were deep and long lasting connections. And it’s with these people that I am and will continue to collaborate with. And we’re going to change the world together.

One of the people that I met at BYM is Nondumiso. She’s written a brilliant article on her experience of another prestigious event, the Queens Young Leaders. To close off this blog post, here is the last bit of her article:

Whatever your passion is, start small and collaborate

If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?

Alone, one only gets so far. Together we get a lot further and have a lot more impact.

If you intend to do good in the world, and your passion fuels you, you will do good.

If your intentions are shared with like-minded people and your passion unites, it is amazing what we can all achieve together.
