In this episode of Mission Driven Entrepreneurs I interview someone who asked to link to me on linkedin. Now as you know if you have ever been in one of my workshops I don't link to just anyone!  But Rex was clear about why he wanted to link to me and he had an interesting background so I was keen to talk to him to understand his mission in setting up some of the organisations he has been involved with.

Rex set up the African Achievers Awards and is on a mission to celebrate and invest in the potential of Africans to change the future of Africa for the better. When faced with huge problems it's too easy to give up as they seem to be so insurmountable, but here's a bright young lawyer doing his bit to address these issues.

In this session you’ll find out about: 

  • What his mission is and what he is passionate about
  • The journey to setting up an organisation that has had Archbishop Desmond Tutu as a recipient of one of the awards
  • What other organisations he has set up and how he has learnt from these
  • His exciting plans for the next few year and his secret for success
