Discovery has evolved into a diversified and multinational financial services group, expanding its reach to the United Kingdom, United States, China, Europe and Asia. The Group serves over seven million customers around the world.

ORT JET has as its mission to help make people financially sustainable.

Gore stressed that no matter what position you are in, always be humble, lead from the front and have respect for others.

Find a niche. Whenever possible, take the road less travelled. Don’t chase money; let passion drive what you do.

He stressed a philosophy that has helped Discovery along its growth path: Aspire for perfection and avoid mediocrity. Make your decision slowly, but act quickly.

He added: Visualise what you want and what you’re passionate about. As a team player par excellence, he stressed. Surround yourself with a smart team and select your shareholders carefully. Positivity and optimism remain the most powerful fuel of all, he told his appreciative audience.

But equally important, as far as a balanced life is concerned, he says, once you spend time doing what you love at work and at home, you gain balance in your life without the need to chase it.

Gore had a refreshing response to mistakes he has made. He reiterated that it is up to us to redefine failures and make them part of the learning process and journey for a successful business.
