Sibusiso held the unwavering attention of the guests throughout the presentation, and

received a massive applause that spoke of a great admiration for his feats, for his humility, for the exemplary example of his life and attitude, and for the underlying

challenge to everyone which accompanied his great presentation and message.

We heartily recommend Sibusiso’s presentation to any group of people who spend time together, whether it be in a work, social or spiritual environment. There is a magic about

the presentation which inspires, builds and challenges, in the most encouraging and endearing of ways.

Sibusiso’s presentation is extremely inspiring. It is the most incredible story of his journey. All aspects were so interesting and obviously worked well when trying to get across the importance of team work – each person’s role in the expedition is so important. We at Sasfin Wealth really enjoyed the presentation and would definitely recommend Sibusiso to others.
