Dr. Michael Mol didn’t go for career counseling, which could explain why he’s not only a medical doctor, but an executive TV producer & presenter, an international speaker, business consultant and a founding director of a multi-national company called Hello Doctor. His twitter profile sheds more light: “A husband to one, father to three, friend to few, a stranger to many… but not to God.”
A trauma doctor turned TV personality with a Mr. South Africa title in the mix, Michael anchored Top Billing, South Africa’s longest running prime time television magazine show, for more than a decade. Then as Executive Producer and presenter he melded his passion for medicine and media and produced two TV series: “Hello Doctor” and “The Dr. Mol Show” with a vision to educate, entertain and inspire people to live their best life, by being the healthiest they can be. Watched by over a million people weekly, the show was part of a bigger vision to give every South African access to personal, affordable and quality healthcare through their mobile phones. Now a mobile health company, Hello Doctor’s game-changing approach to healthcare, using mobile phones to give anyone access to doctors anytime, anywhere – has spread globally.
Michael has been commissioned to write a second book, on the back of his first best-selling title “Your Best Life.” He lives in Cape Town, South Africa with his wife Jacqui, and three children, Joshua (17), Rachael (14) and Naethan (9) … and is no longer on the safe side of 40.
