Michael MolLocation: Based in Cape Town
Michael Mol wears several hats, all of different shapes and sizes.
He’s a medical doctor, an executive television producer, presenter, international speaker, business consultant, company director and most importantly – a husband and father of three.
Fifteen years ago, this energetic young trauma doctor carried his charisma from the casualty room over to the small screen and anchored Top Billing, South Africa’s longest running prime time television magazine show, for more than a decade. He spoke to the stars, travelled the world and shared his experiences in a personal and endearing way with a captive audience, scooping up numerous critically acclaimed media awards along the way. He’s garnered accolades for scriptwriting, producing and presenting – most recently a People’s Award for the Best TV Presenter, most popular TV personality and two SAFTA nominations for The Dr Mol Show. A former Mr. South Africa, he is also a Red Cross Children’s Champion, and a patron of SA Cares for Life, Living Hope and the Orbis Foundation.
Michael's passion for understanding the world around him led him to co-founding the futurist consultancy TomorrowToday, helping individuals and organizations to better understand the way the world works, and trends that will affect us in the future. In particular, Michael has a passion for helping people find significance and purpose - through discovering their innate strengths, and founded the Revolution Group to do just that. He has spoken to leading companies around the world, has been nominated by South Africa’s foremost CEO’s as one of the country’s top business speakers, and was awarded a Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Speakers Association.
In line with his desire for a healthier world, Michael took up the position of CEO of the Sportron International group of companies in 2006 - a group focused on promoting health and wellness through education and hi-tech, new generation nutritional supplements – but the power of media would not let him go.
In 2010, he launched SABC 3’s live morning show Expresso, as anchor presenter. Then as Executive Producer and presenter he melded his passion for medicine and media and created a new TV series called “Hello Doctor” (renamed “The Dr Mol Show” for two seasons) which launched in April 2011 with a vision to educate, entertain and inspire South Africans to live their best life, by being the healthiest they can be. The show was watched by over a million people weekly and was part of a bigger vision to create a platform for interactivity that not only educates a wide audience on prevention and health related issues - but one that gives every South African access to individualized health education, care and advice through direct and affordable access to doctors via their mobile phones.
That vision became a reality through “Hello Doctor” – a mobile healthcare company of which he is a founding director. Hello Doctor’s revolutionary approach to healthcare (a doctor in your pocket 24/7) has spread globally and is operating in several countries in Africa as well as Indonesia. The Hello Doctor app is consistently in the Top 3 most downloaded health and fitness apps in South Africa, and the company’s pioneering approach to solving the healthcare crisis caught the attention of the MMI, who bought a majority stake in the company at the end of 2013. Michael is currently producing a new localized “Hello Doctor” series for Indonesia.
Toward the end of 2014 Michael’s first book “The Best Day of your Life” will hit South African shelves.
Aside from all the hats he wears, he suffers from an incurable addiction … an insatiable thirst for adrenalin! From sky-diving out of a hot-air balloon, to running the bulls in Pamplona, to scuba diving under an frozen lake, to wing walking on a bi-plane, to surfing the great Zambezi white waters on a body board, to flying to th edge of space in a russian mig and bungi jumping off the highest bridge in the world …backwards! There’s nothing that he would shrink back from – yet!
Michael is available as MC, celebrity guest or speaker for events across South Africa and beyond. His interpersonal and business skills, together with his ability to identify, simplify and pass on insightful observations about the world we live in, combined with an endearing presentation style, have made him a favourite with conference organisers and business professionals around the world.
