In that same year David Ran from the most northern temple in Kashmir India to the most southern temple in the ocean at Kanyikumari a distance of some 4008 km and a time span of 93 days becoming one of the first people to complete this deemed to be impossible feat.

KZN Chapter Meeting - 21 April 2016

Dr Mark Manley

'The Conference Speaker'

Mark is going to present on what he calls MaxSpeak (Presentation Impact)

For success, all speakers must have an objective of bringing some kind of change to the situation – usually in the people that will change systems and ultimately the world.

That is the leverage we have.  As Steven Jobs said, “Make a dent in the universe.”

It’s not enough to be slick and eloquent. We speakers have to be able to move people psychologically in a way that will have consequence in the real world.
