About John Smit

As a boy, John William Smit had dreams of winning Wimbledon. Luckily for sports fans around the world, a love for tennis became a passion for rugby which saw him grow into one of South Africa’s most successful rugby captains.

Born in Pietersburg in 1978, John Smit went to Pretoria Boys High School where he was head prefect in 1996 and played in the First XV.

He has played most of his career as a hooker, but played twice for the Springboks off the bench as a prop prior to the South Africa coaching staff’s decision to use him as a tighthead prop for the 2008 end of year Tests. In 2008 he surpassed prop Os du Randt as the most-capped forward in Springboks history.

About the Breakfast Indaba

TheSouthAfrican.com and The SA Chamber of Commerce have partnered to deliver the monthly Breakfast Indaba, the most pro-active business networking opportunity within the South African community.

Every participant will be given the opportunity to present to the group of 40+ South African orientated business networkers, enjoy a great breakfast and GENERATE BUSINESS.

What’s great about working with other South Africans? They speak your language. They are friendly, clear, honest and direct in their business dealings and, like you, know what hard work means and they have fun doing it. You and your business need people like that – people you can trust.

The Breakfast Indaba asks each business person to do a one-minute business presentation so everyone can understand the clients they are searching for. There’ll also be an educational plus a coffee and a decent breakfast served during the proceedings.
