While many speakers focus on just one of these areas, JP and his team of researchers have been studying these fields as they pertain to SA for some years now, constantly upgrading their knowledge and understanding. Their financial commitment though the research enables them to explore those themes and angles which are not covered in the mainstream media. The result is a holistic product that integrates all four fields in a unique way.
