Devan Moonsamy has more than 15 years experience in the learning and development space, and is the CEO of the I Can Help Africa Foundation (ICHAF) Training Institute Pty (Ltd).

Gareth breaks his article down in this conversation to find out straight from him what he exactly meant by it, especially in these times that we’re living in. Have we as society become too outraged? Are we being too emotional when it comes to some of the problems we face? Are we too fixated on emotion and not enough on overcoming issues? They discuss this and more here.
