Dr David Molapo was born at the height of the apartheid era, but has never allowed the bitterness of the past to dictate his future. “You are no longer a prisoner of your past, but a pioneer of your future”, he often tells those he addresses. He obtained an Associate Degree in Mathematics and Science followed by a B.Sc. in Education, a Master’s Degree in Education and a Doctorate in Religious Education in the USA. He owns two companies and is chairman of four others. To be successful in the Human Resources business, David reckons personal experience and life skills are at the top of the list. You also need all the knowledge and wisdom you can glean from God’s Word.
His values are integrity, honesty and fairness, and he believes the keys to success in life is to believe in yourself, grow in confidence, and be tough but tender hearted. An important lesson life has taught him is to always take others up to the top with you. Dr David Molapo is a top management consultant, educationalist and renowned motivational speaker. By using a fine combination of humour, incredible stage presence and his personal life experiences, he has an unique ability to capture any audience with his message of hope.
Through his public appearances, his books and his stints in the media, David motivates, inspires and guides more than a million people annually in South Africa. He provides them with the confidence and tools they need to change their lives and those of the people around them. At the age of thirteen David was imprisoned for political activities. In jail an amazing process of change started in his life, which transformed him to become the successful businessman, leader, husband and father he is today. He is married to Dr Mamikie Molapo.
