Tutu Fellow selected for "Expert Mavericks"

Tutu Fellow selected for "Expert Mavericks"

The book, Expert Mavericks, showcases extraordinary individuals, each one a maverick in their field. It highlights the journeys and struggles that they faced in order to achieve success. Tutu Fellow Craig Wing is one of the 13 people selected for the book, compiled by Shareen Richter. 

The 13 South Africans, who are considered mavericks in their respective fields, share their personal stories with Richter in an effort to empower other South Africans to...

learn from their mistakes, grow from their successes, and use these lessons to become the most dynamic, successful people they can. 

Richter says that in a time of uncertainty and negativity in the world, this book showcases how much opportunity exists and how powerful South Africans are.

Among the 13 stories is that of Craig Wing, the current partner at Future World International who started his first company at 22, completed two Masters degrees, helped more than 1,000 entrepreneurs, and is responsible for two provisional patents, starting four companies and creating 50 000 websites in one year - or about one every 10 minutes.

The book makes its international debut this month and include Cassper Nyovest, Rowan Swartz, Dr Ridwan Mia, Shereen Hunter, Janine Hills, Shaheed Joosub, Alex Granger, Albert Bardavid, Tandy Coleman, Carla Da Silva, Pam Green and Anthony Goodman.

A portion of book sales is going to the Smile Foundation, an NGO that assists children with treatable facial anomalies like cleft palates and other conditions.
