Stene Jacobs - South African Sage


Property developer Stene Jacobs joins us to discuss why London is the gateway to the rest of the world, how he qualified as a diver in the South African navy, the do’s and don’ts of running with bulls in Pamplona, how depression is a valuable and necessary part of life, his views on the massive socio-economic changes happening in South Africa, public vs. private education, and how a successful business all comes down to your network.
