Business aside, in 2010, Michael launched Expresso, SABC’s live morning show, as anchor presenter. Then as Executive Producer and presenter he melded his passion for medicine and media and produced two new TV series: “Hello Doctor” and “The Dr. Mol Show” with a vision to educate, entertain and inspire people to live their best life, by being the healthiest they can be. Watched by over a million people weekly, the show was part of a bigger vision to give every South African access to personal, affordable and quality healthcare through immediate access to doctors via their mobile phones.
That vision became a reality with “Hello Doctor” – a mobile healthcare company of which he is a founding director. Hello Doctor’s game-changing approach to healthcare, using mobile technology to give anyone access to doctors anytime, anywhere - has spread globally, operating in several countries.
Michael is a South African Brand ambassador and has been commissioned to write a second book, on the back of his first best-selling publication “Your Best Life.”
Aside from all the hats he wears, he suffers from an insatiable thirst for adrenalin! From sky-diving out of a hot-air balloon, running the bulls in Pamplona, scuba diving under a frozen lake, wing walking on a bi-plane, surfing the great Zambezi white waters on a body board, flying to the edge of space in a Russian Mig and bungee jumping off the highest bridge in the world backwards - there’s nothing that he wouldn’t tackle… yet!
It's Your Move
“You may not be sick, but that doesn’t mean you’re healthy.” Health is not our default setting, it requires pro-active pursuit and the most pro-active thing we can do to invest in our health is to be pro-active, literally. Aside from being addictive (and free), it’s no secret that exercise is a miracle drug that combats chronic disease, controls our weight, improves our moods, boosts energy, promotes better sleep, ignites our sex life, strengthens immunity and enhances brain power. So why don’t we get our game on!? Simple really. We don’t have a compelling “why”. Knowing your “WHY” is the most powerful of motivators – and figuring it out is the gist of Dr Michael Mol’s latest keynote presentation: “It’s your Move” - Using empirical, on the spot, self-assessments (resting heart rate, waist circumference, diabetes self-checks, stress analysis and more) each member of the audience has an opportunity to identify their own personal “WHY.” A self-revelation that’s then followed up with astounding, evidence based, myth busting eye-openers on the “how” and “what” of exercise. It’s a compelling case. There’s a strong likelihood that this single hour could extend your life by a decade. Science says so … what do you say?
The Truth About You
Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day?
Chances are, you don’t. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths, and that’s not clever. Your unique mix of talents and passions are not merely what set you apart – they define your lasting success and your ability to be the best at what you do.
Concepts covered in the Keynote
• Understanding Biochemical Energy
• The diagnosis and consequences of mismanaging our energy
• Debunking the Myths and paradigms of traditional management
Michael’s speech was excellent and made you realize that you have to find a balance in life. It was quite scary to discover that as an employee most of us are under-utilized and our real strengths are not recognized. I learned that you define who you are both in your personal and work environment and to do what you love, those are your inherent strengths.

Michael’s presentation was inspiring and memorable – his content of his presentation really “hit home” for many of our employees and they truly enjoyed the message he delivered.
