What previous participants have said about our events:

Dumisani Wambi

Co-founder, Sisonke Konnect

Exceptional reception from the Pranary team, and insightful delivery of information from the speaker and attendees. The quality of the network is outstanding!

Mellania Mashandudze

Founder, The Home Of Bougie

Pranary has a great way of planning events that speak to me as an individual in my entrepreneurial journey. Today’s event changed my life and my thoughts about google ads. I have been equipped with digital knowledge which is something that everyone wants and talks about but do not know the right path to follow. I am grateful for Pranary.
