IIBA-SA BA Summit Track Chair – September 2019

Under its original guise, as BASSA, the (now known as) BA Summit launched in 2012, and I’ve had the pleasure of presenting every year (bar one in 2015).

However, I have decided to take a step back from speaking this year as it’s time for some new voices to take to the stage and share their insights with the South African business analyst community at this annual event.

Over the years this conference has given me plenty, both personally and professionally. It’s a great platform to shape ideas, share insights, build networks and grow careers.

When the conferences release the call for papers, I encourage you to seriously consider raising your hand and getting stuck in.

Keep your eyes on this page for the announcement: https://basummit.co.za/call-for-papers/

(Though, as most of my readers will know, I’m a keen ambassador for the IIBA® and IIBA®-SA chapter and so I shan’t be hanging up my boots altogether. Instead, this year, I’ve volunteered as a track chair for the BA Summit 2019.)

I’m excited to help shape the 2019 edition of this prestigious conference – and I hope you will be too.

If you’d like to know more about speaking, please ask me.


Almost 2020, and a new blog – over 12 years since my first. I’m sorry that it’s been so long, but I’m stoked that you’re here. I’ll be posting news, giving updates, and making announcements on this sub-page — letting you know what’s happening.

In the meantime, though, I encourage you to subscribe via email, it’s free and I’ll never give or sell your information to anyone. Or if RSS is your thing, all you need to do is find an RSS reader you like (I like Feedly) and then paste this link into it to add a new feed —


[If you’re already subscribed, there’s no need to do it again, but if you’re not sure, go for it, as you’ll only get one email a week – at most – either way.]
