Having just heard the news of Nelson Mandela’s passing, I cannot help but reflect on the amazing impact this one man has had during his lifetime.

What captivates me most is the story of a dream, and determination for a better future.

He was able to overcome obstacles, having served 27 years (of a life sentence) then to be released in 1990, to become the first black South African President by 1994.

The legacy of Nelson Mandela, to me, will always beg the question – what do I do next?

Make your time count… Impact the world!
