Arianna Huffington is thriving and winging her way to South Africa

Author, columnist and businesswoman par excellence Arianna Huffington left the Huffington Post, which she founded, at the age of 66 to start a new venture Thrive Global.

She is on her way to South Africa as a guest at the Discovery Leadership Summit taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre on 14 November.

She chats to Bruce Whitfield from New York about her new life direction.

Thrive Global is all about workplace health which is increasingly becoming a global trend.
