“No Fit” Online Book Launch
Global award-winning author Dr. Nico de Klerk will be interviewed by Prof Leonie Baldacchino about his extraordinary "long walk for the entrepreneurial mindset," which is featured in his book "No Fit."
As a white man walking solo across South Africa for 1,700 miles (2,750 km), social innovator de Klerk’s unannounced arrival at more than 100 townships (segregated areas of Black population post-Apartheid) with no pre-arrangements could be seen as highly risky behavior. Why did he do it? Through delivering workshops on the entrepreneurship mindset to nearly 50,000 students and the impoverished—while conducting research about the South African strategy to address poverty, unemployment, and inequality—de Klerk's journey transcended that of a long walk. Blending socioeconomics, neuroscience, and spirituality, while revealing what it means to be human on this planet, de Klerk’s work was awarded the Best Global Innovative Project for 2018 by Life Learning Academia with the Edward de Bono Reference Award. The interview will be followed by a Q&A session, and everyone is welcome to attend and join the discussion.
