FEAT Talk Highlights from October 2012 in Johannesburg.
The next annual FEAT talks evening will take place on Thursday, 4 October 2012 @ The Alexander Theatre, Braamfontein, Jo’burg.
Rock climbing legend Andy de Klerk spoke of the responsibility that climbers shoulder when opening climbing routes. A good route is elegant and well planned; a successful ascent is not purely about hauling yourself to the top by any means.
The speakers at this third edition of FEAT are cut from the same cloth. Andy de Klerk has opened countless climbing routes; he’s also a respected and accomplished alpinist, skydiver and BASE jumper.
FEAT proudly announces a new FEAT innovation: the FEAT Award.
From there who knows where…” reads an email received after the second edition of FEAT, an evening of talks celebrating South African adventures, held in Cape Town on 12 February 2011.
“What an amazing event and what brilliant speakers,” says FEAT MC, Bruce Fordyce. “The format was perfect for keeping the pace fast and exciting. I sat spellbound listening to each dynamic presentation. It was an honour and privilege to share the stage with such special people.”
Alex Harris has been climbing mountains for two decades, leading more than 20 expeditions. In 1996, at the age of 25, Alex resigned from a career in sales to follow his passion for exploration.
In October, for the first time, 12 South African adventurers come together to tell of their recent expedition experiences at FEAT, a dynamic and captivating evening of time-limited presentations.
