National Theme

  • To develop a nation, develop its people; change the people and change the nation

  • A leadership without an engaging vision is a leadership out of control

  • The personality of a nation is the personality of its people; the soul of the nation is found in the heart of its people

Organizational Theme

  • Look after your people and your people will look after your organization

  • A competitive organization is made up of competent people

  • Organizations who will control the future are those who value the physical and intrinsic assets under its portfolio

Personal Theme

  • Lifelong personal learning and development is a calling, not an occupation

  • No ruler, nor power, nor influence in the world have monopoly over creativity and innovation nor the ability to make a day longer – everyone is still equal in potential to change their stars

  • Wisdom is not taught, nor transferred, nor traded, it’s a gift and imbedded in the genome of all, the value resonates only when applied
