Bringing EQ to the corporate sector
This is what I've been trying to do since I achieved degrees in the Humanities ...after I had a motorbike accident in my matric year (1986) that left me in a coma for 5-months. But I haven't had many speeches.

#InnovationMonth: How tech is transforming healthcare
I I had a severe motorbike accident in my matric year (1986) that left me in a coma for 7-months. I've since achieved 4 Uni degrees in the Humanities. After a few months in a coma my mom asked a dr why I was still alive? He said, apparently, that I was still alive because I was very fit.
