Our Monthly Dinners


At each of our dinners we encourage people to arrive early before formalities start @ 7.15 and leave late after the proceedings conclude @ 9.30 pm - taking the opportunity to meet others and explore opportunities to collaborate in some way around our stated purpose of driving SA forward..

To stumilate that we we have a regular format which allows us to give people doing big bold things a chance to talk about what they do and for our regulars to take part in panels and to present their story and the benefits they are getting from attending in the past

Our theme for 2019 - Taking SA  to the World (esp Asia)

Conversations with Visionaries

Zaffar Khan

Business Entrepreneur | Executive Chairman of Home Doctor Group of Companies & NDIS Registered Approved Provider |Author

Zaffar will talk about “How To Achieve Anything in 5 Steps” for 10 minutes and then we will have questions and answers for 10-20 minutes. Miracle with 20 Disappointments, Failure and Resilience is part of these 5 steps. Behind the scene he has been using these 5 Steps in all of his businesses and will be disclosing those 5 steps publicly first time at our dinner.

"Believe me your people will love this talk - it will be one of the unique talks people have ever heard. I will give the “Ingredient of Success”."


At our July Dinner  we had a brief conversation with Zaffar, our new sponsor who was visiting from Brisbane.  He talked about the philosophy that has supported him in failure and driven his incredible business success.

Zaffar came to Australia 40 years ago and worked as a cleaner and taxi driver and within a few years he owned taxi companies and then lost it all. And has gone on to build great success and provide great service to the wider community.

Last month he talked about Resilience and his dance to celebrate things that didn't work and his approach to trying 20 different ways before giving up.

The feedback was such that we have invited him back for an indepth conversation which will include plenty of opportunities for Q&A and interaction with our audience.

Cocoon have shown great commitment to SA in building 62 homes for People with Disbabilities around SA this year with another 60 plus next year.
