David’s audio-visual live presentation: “The Power of Vision” is a visual and intellectual feast. Remarkable and beautiful photographs, many secured through some of the world’s largest telescopes, including the Hubble Space Telescope, take you from the planet earth, to comets, to the birth of stars and furthest galaxies.
With audiences such as PRISA (Public Relations Institute of South Africa), Pick ‘n Pay, South African Breweries (SAB) and De Beers, Professor Block is a well worth it speaker who will help you learn how to embrace change and thrive on chaos (‘chaos theory’), pivotal to reaching your stellar potential.
“Yours is a branch of science which has occupied the mind of every great scientist from Aristotle to Einstein. It is a noble pursuit indeed, and one which fundamentally enriches human knowledge about our habitat and our history” – Nelson Mandela
