Pretoria Chapter was very pleased to host Dr Alex Granger on 28 May 2020.
It was great to host PSASA President Joni Peddie, KZN Chapter President, Zanele Njapha and Cape Town Chapter President, Unotida Nyoni. From the Johannesburg Chapter, it was great to see Dr Ian Bratt who is a regular visitor to our Chapter in Pretoria, especially when we have face to face meetings at Lynnwood Conference Centre. We were also spoilt to have some participants from abroad, notably from Ghana and Zimbabwe, these are the benefits of hosting virtual meetings!

Our Topic was The Second Arrow
Dr Alex spoke on Personal Mastery, his topic: the 2nd Arrow. The essence of his talk is that we may not be able to control what happens to us but we have control on how we respond. This is especially important during times of uncertainty like the current COVID19 pandemic. The participants were very happy to hear Dr Alex sing at the end. What a great evening that was!
