I got in touch with the managing director of YESA, Dr Ron Beyers. Dr Ron did his PhD through North West University in “Promoting Human Capital Development through ICTs, Creativity and Innovation" and has been educating grade 8 - 12 students on various subjects including Biology, Physical Science, Mathematics, Computer Studies, Thinking Skills, Design and Technology, Bible Education and Computer Literacy.

A very thought provoking video on the issues of creativity and how to make provision for it in the work place.
