"Thank you so much for giving us the great treat of listening to you last week. It was an absolutely virtuoso performance and the feedback I received afterwards was most enthusiastic. Your skill in running what amounted to a workshop, with nearly 500 people, was masterly."
(Chairperson, University of the Third Age, March 2004)
"Thank you for a fascinating time with you. It has opened up a whole new realm of thinking for me as to how I run my life, and how we communicate our business in Africa."
(Rob de Groot, Standard Bank. Head: Brand marketing, Africa)
Your workshop was astounding and it left my team with the most awesome energy that bounced off the walls for an entire week.
The painting used for the cover, Justiça by Brazilian artist Alexander Moreira, is an unusual depiction of Lady Justice done in soluble coffee and white tempera. It calls to mind what is honourable, fair, well-reasoned, balanced and ‘jus’ (right): a seeking of the truth and a taking of responsibility. The absence of the usually prominent sword ascribes a gentle strength to Justice, rather than one which destroys. The aim of such gentle justice in business is restoration and harmony.
“Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts” (Amos 5:15 ) are the virtues of the virtuouso business.
