I happened to link up with an award winning StartUp that developed GEM, which is a mobile rewards platform for volunteers in South Africa.
The first session was with David Shields who is a co-founder of GEM and the second session was with Danielle Jarvis who is a Project Coordinator.
Besides GEM, Danielle is a Couchsurfer, Managing Director of SailPro, High-Performance Sailing Coach and Psychology post-graduate so I had a lot to learn from her in those areas. We talked about Couchsurfing, travel experiences, sailing and opinions on education since she’s a teacher.
