South Africa’s first ever The Success Summit, headlined by Sir Richard Branson, took place in March 2013 at The Sandton Convention Centre. The local PR agency introduced us to all the speakers and helped coordinate a number of Skype interviews – interviews which were recorded in studio and then played later on air during the live show.
Our very first international interview was with Greg Secker who has developed a bespoke trading system which helps people create additional wealth through trading stocks. Next was Robert Allen, widely acclaimed property investor and bestselling author who has made billions. Then followed Loral Langemeier, Andy Harrington, Scott Harris, Marlon Smith, Adam Ginsberg and Dr. Rohan Weerasinghe.
The ultimate coup was having Dr John Demartini agree to join us live in studio to teach for an hour on Highest Values and why knowing and understanding these is core to your leading a purposeful and fulfilled life.
Each interview was podcast and sent out via social media platforms and LinkedIn Groups. As a result of our hard work the PR firm gifted us and the radio station 100 free tickets which we then used to send 100 deserving South African entrepreneurial youths to the event so that they could learn from the best.
During 2013 and 2014 South Africa experienced a flood of international gurus – from T Harv Eker and Doug Nelson who teach the highly acclaimed programme Secrets of a Millionaire Mind, to Les Brown [widely regarded as one of the world’s most inspirational speaker], Chris Gardner of The Pursuit of Happyness fame, to James Caan of the UK’s hit television series, Dragon’s Den.
Over the duration of our show Dr John Demartini joined us in studio three more times to teach on Relationships, Doom. gloom and silver linings and in our last show with him, the importance of faith.
Our approach with all these success touting gurus was a simple one – we would interview them and help promote what it is that they were doing here in South Africa, however, in return, they had to teach and share the key success lessons and approaches which had made them rich and powerful. This is why our library of podcasts provides you with such an important repository of easily accessible knowledge – because it is not just a collection of idle chatter, quite the contrary, it is crammed full of success creating wisdom and strategies shared by people who have achieved what the world would deem to be extreme pinnacles of success.
