The drivers to
organisational performance

We spend more time at work than at home. Why should our relationships there be less meaningful? Now you too can lead for impact. To improve performance, innovation, and employee engagement, you only need to change your perspective.

Eksteen has worked with teams in the pharmaceutical, banking and medical devices industry where critical thinking is all in a day's work but thoughts on relationships less so. Through exploring his personal journey in leadership he highlights the latest research and impactful interventions that can help you forge a new way of leading.

How technology is affecting our relationships with healthcare workers

1 in 200 people has hemochromatosis. A condition that slowly poisons your body with too much iron leading to organ and even brain damage.

It is easy to detect and treat, yet very few doctors diagnose it correctly from the start. This surprisingly common metabolic disorder is often only diagnosed later in life, which means that for millions of people each year, the damage has already been done and may not be reversible.  
Eksteen shares his own personal journey with hemochromatosis; how it has impacted his life, and what one can do to protect the ones you love.

It is a story of technological change, the healthcare insustries and the power of early adoption.
