You would be surprised to learn how many business principles are informed by the ancestors of Africa. Storytelling connects the human race and helps us to understand each other better. It's a pathway to healing. If there is one continent that's misunderstood, it's Africa. These stories must be heard.
In this story safari, Carmen Murray chats to Frans van der Colff, Lecturer and Fellow at Henley Business School about the power of African storytelling, and how the history of this continent is misunderstood.
