Henley Breakfast with Alan Hosking: Achieving genuine success - building seven forms of wealth.
Too many people believe that financial success is the only and best form of success. That is a very narrow and inferior view of success. This presentation looks at how to avoid settling for a superficial version of success and achieving a deep and meaningful success by focusing on building seven forms of wealth instead of only one. ALAN HOSKING
has dedicated his career to the development of people in all walks of life and across four generations. A Psychology and English graduate with a Post Graduate Higher Education Diploma, Alan started his career in the education sector, moved into training in the corporate world and then into private enterprise as a publisher.
A multitalented person, Alan's roles embrace magazine publisher, author, editor, mentor, coach, trainer, public speaker, trend spotter and musician.

In 2011, he received a Meritorious Award from the Association of Mine Human Resource Practitioners for outstanding contribution in service of the interests of the South African Mining Industry.
Alan is the Publisher of HR Future, a global human strategy magazine (www.hrfuture.net
), and has previously been a Contributing Editor for two UK-based international HR magazines, as well as a regular contributor to three national parenting magazines in South Africa. Five years ago he and his team were tasked by the Nelson Mandela Foundation with the redesign and relaunch of former President Nelson Mandela's personal website, nelsonmandela.org.
