From a mining-town childhood before decades spent in the education of young people, Rudi has learned that actually, unlocking the potential of the real diamonds in the world- people - is the answer. To get there, and to do great things we need to be a little bit crazy, unclutter our minds when we can and ask how we make every day count when all we have is 86400 seconds in each one. Living consciously and mindfully permeates through this beautiful purpose-lived conversation.
