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. 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.

What is Ubuntu?
The Cardinal spirit of Ubuntu is expressed in Xhosa as “Umntu ngumntu ngabanye abantu” in English as “people are people thru other people,” or “I am human because I belong to the human community and I view and treat others accordingly.” It is an African word for a universal concept which is fair and compassionate approach to a collective respect for human dignity.
