'HAPPY PEOPLE ARE HARDER TO KILL'
Conn Bertish is extraordinarily hard to kill. He is a multiple internationally awarded creative director, cancer survivor and founder of the innovative world changing social enterprise Cancer Dojo – which aims to turn cancer patients into active participants in their own healing using a mash of creativity, technology and mindful thinking.
Conn’s creative, irreverent approach to challenges enabled him to not only beat his rare form of adult brain cancer, but tackle massive waves as a Red Bull big wave surfer; ride steep mountains passes as a downhill extreme skateboarder; win South Africa’s first Fear Factor and raise numerous hackles as a conceptual artist and environmental activist. He is one of South Africa’s most respected creative thinkers and performed the role of Creative Director for the World Design Capital Cape Town 2014 after beating cancer in 2013.
Conn now shares his unique Dojo thinking approach to living, to assist humans, brands and organisation overcome challenges, engender leadership and become happier, healthier and as he likes to say, ‘Harder to kill.’
Conn uses Creative Purpose-driven strategy to engender Resilience as a consultant for projects, brands and organizations facing tough challenges.
He also offers creative programs and workshops to help people become happier, healthier and harder to kill.
