Riveting and insightful..

I suppose you are accustomed to blowing people away with your presentations, and charismatic presence, so it should come as no surprise that you now added the South African Business Schools Association to your growing list of admirers. Thank you for giving us both an enormously entertaining, but highly informative world-wind tour of communities which surrounds, but of which we know nothing about. It was riveting, and insightful, and I think, will provide my colleagues with food for thought about how we should teach business in a kasinomics environment. - Millard Arnold

A MASSIVE thank you..

On behalf of A2Pay I just wanted to send a MASSIVE thank you to you for yesterday. You were definitely the highlight of our conference and I can’t tell you how many people kept raving about “the Zulu”. - Jon Harris
