Tangible Results - Fast Track to Freedom

Vibe Wire - Fastbreak


Invited by my friend Rai Santana www.facebook.com/we.can.all.be.heroes to fastBREAK, a breakfast at the Powerhouse Museum, held by Vibe Wire, (www.vibewire.org) an organisation which provides media, arts and entrepreneurial opportunities and events for young people. The topic for the event was "Failure" and the five young speakers were variously entertaining, moving, impactful and inspiring. Made me think the staid nature of many business networking events could do with a big shakeup!

I was particularly inspired by Justin Koonin, a mathematics whizz cut down by severe illness. After years of apparent failure he bounced back and is the founder and director Little Travellers Australia (www.littletravellersaus.org.au) which raises awareness about the 5.7 million South Africans living with HIV/AIDS and supports those infected and affected. I'm the proud owner of a Little Traveller - beaded dolls made by crafters and sold to raise funds. You can read stories of their courage and resilience on the website.
