In addition to our annual match against the Old Tonbridgians, we now are delighted to announce our inaugural match against the Old Haileyburians, a school which has very close ties to Bishops. Shouldn't stop us from aiming to thrash them. Alex Price (M, 2008) captains the side and can be contacted by clicking HERE.
Heavy Chef and The OD Union in partnership with Sable International presents: Techpreneurship at The Mitre! - with Mark Forrester (1999G) & Annette Muller August 14 2018, 6 pm for 6:30 pm Founder of Heavy Chef, Fred Roed (1991G) reports: "Heavy Chef creates learning experiences for entrepreneurs. We offer events, workshops and tours featuring some of the most inspiring people on the planet. The name 'Heavy Chef' actually has nothing to do with cooking, and comes from the saying never trust a skinny chef. In a world of talkers, Heavy Chef believe it’s the doers that are going to change it. Heavy Chef's aim is to inspire people to start things, and then empower them to succeed. We have invited two of South Africa’s most dynamic tech entrepreneurs Mark Forrester (1999G) and Annette Muller. Mark, who matriculated in 1999 from Bishops, is the founder of WooThemes and WooCommerce, which has been downloaded over 47 million times and powers almost a third of all the world’s e-commerce stores. Annette Muller is a sought-after international speaker, founder of Flexyforce, an innovative new startup in the Future of Work sector, and has been recognised by Forbes International as one of the ‘top 10 female tech founders to watch In Africa’. This event is for Bishops ODs, parents, pupils, and aspiring entrepreneurs who are curious about the brave new world of South African entrepreneurship." The event is kindly sponsored by Sable International.
