MICHAEL MOL

MICHAEL MOL

Summit Host/ Head of Hello Doctor

Michael Mol didn’t go for career counseling, which could explain why he’s a medical doctor, an executive TV producer & presenter, an international speaker, social entrepreneur, business consultant, former CEO and founder of Hello Doctor. His twitter profile sheds more light @DrMichaelMol:“A husband to one, father to three, friend to few, a stranger to many… but not to God.”

A trauma doctor turned TV personality with a Mr. South Africa title in the mix, Michael traded the casualty room for the small screen and anchored Top Billing, South Africa’s longest running prime time television magazine show, for more than a decade, scooping up several critically acclaimed awards along the way. Michael’s passion for discerning what makes people tick then led him to co-founding Tomorrow Today – helping organizations navigate the ‘New World of Work’ followed by The Revolution Group – helping people unearth what they were born to do through discovering their innate strengths. He has spoken to companies around the world and has been recognized as one of the South Africa’s top business speakers with a Hall of Fame distinction. In line with his ambition for a healthier world, Michael took up the position of CEO of Sportron International – a group of companies focused on promoting health and wellness through education and a new generation of nanotech nutritional supplements – but the power of media to bring about positive behaviour change would not let him go.

Business aside, Michael launched Expresso, SABC’s live morning show, as anchor presenter. Then as Executive Producer and presenter he melded his passion for medicine and media and produced two new TV series: “Hello Doctor” and “The Dr. Mol Show” with a vision to educate, entertain and inspire people to live their best life, by being the healthiest they can be. Watched by over a million people weekly, the show was part of a bigger vision to give every South African access to personal, affordable and quality healthcare through immediate access to doctors via their mobile phones. That vision became a reality with “Hello Doctor” – a mobile healthcare company of which he is a founding director. Hello Doctor’s game-changing approach to healthcare, using mobile technology to give anyone access to doctors anytime, anywhere, on any phone in any language is advancing #HealthForAll, and bringing South Africa closer to achieving the WHO’s Sustainable Development Goals – ensuring that everyone everywhere can access essential quality health services without facing financial hardship.

Michael is a South African Brand ambassador and has been commissioned to write a second book, on the back of his first best-selling publication “Your Best Life.” Aside from all the hats he wears, he suffers from an insatiable thirst for adrenaline! From sky-diving out of a hot-air balloon, running the bulls in Pamplona, scuba diving under a frozen lake, wing walking on a biplane, surfing the great Zambezi white waters on a body board, flying to the edge of space in a Russian Mig and bungee jumping off the highest bridge in the world backwards – there’s nothing that he wouldn’t tackle… yet!

Michael lives in Cape Town, South Africa with his wife Jacqui, their three children: Josh (18), Rachael (15) and Naethan (10) and is no longer on the safe side of 40

Nathan van Rooyen

Nathan van Rooyen

IT Director at Virgin Active

I started out as a business analyst, moving onto project management and ending up as an IT Manager, now an IT/Digital Executive.

The majority of this time has been in financial services, especially banking & insurance (long and short-term). As an IT professional, I have spent my time on the business end of the industry more than a technology/technical focus. This has made me strong on understanding the need for and creating alignment between business and IT as part of a functioning organisation. I have a strong process background (BA), a commercial mindset and attempt to create sustainable business capabilities rather than taking short term solutions to solving business problems. Development of an IT or Digital strategy is key to ensure this occurs. Coupled with a strong execution ability, I have and can deliver what is promised.

More recently I've taken a keen interest in digital specifically. The trend for Marketing and IT to work more closely together in terms of exploiting digital technologies for growing the business and getting closer to clients is an exciting field. Especially the use of social platforms and mobile can create cost effective and innovative acquisition tools or business models.
