We were a little taken aback when we received an invite to speak at the 35th Crime Stoppers Conference in Cape Town in October. Nothing like a visit to the lions den.
The DC as representatives of Fields Of Green For ALL have been given the floor on the first afternoon sharing the stage with the likes of the SAPS Hawks International Drug Trafficking representative.
It feels a bit like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – the pair of us driving through the Karoo with a boot full of drugs to an FBI symposium.
It will no doubt be a bit nerve wracking but on the other hand we can’t think of a better opportunity to get to the hearts and minds of the The South African policing community.
We promise we’ll be on our best behaviours and won’t be taking any vape pens into the auditorium. We would suggest you come along for the experience but the registration fees for the conference are nearly R4000 for non speakers. We will try to sneak a video of the proceedings and get some audio to you as soon as we can.
Wish us luck!
