“I can think of few individuals more selfless, dedicated, passionate and driving change through actions and not just words than Ashraf. I got to now Ashraf when he invited me a few times to his radio show on SAfm and through that started learning more and more about his work, energy and incredible talents. We can consider ourselves incredibly lucky that he is channeling that talent towards doing good and improving South Africa. Everything he does is done with so much passion, interest and attention. His incredibly broad understanding of the pieces of the puzzle means he brings out incredible perspectives and his many years interviewing, hosting etc means he has the capabilities to deliver exceptional performances, events, discussions and engagements.”
