Nearly four months since @leaverstoleaders was published and became an International best seller. I am glad to say we are officially supporting AfriEdx as part of our aim for a sustainable development by enabling children in remote areas to have access to primary & secondary education using VR & AR technology.
From my humble upbringing in Mauritius, (part of the African community) I am privileged to have transitioned from the government sector, social sector & business sector. I believe it is businesses & entrepreneurs who can really impact change positively in the world.

This now aligns @leaverstoleaders with a goal bigger than my company which will be also be extended to my partners & suppliers. February 2020, I will be taking a 20 delegates of 20 for a 10 days life changing retreat in support of AfriEdx & personal development to Mauritius. If you want to join me, get in touch or DM me.
