Pierre Heistein has six years experience in economic advisory, specialising in Sub-Saharan Africa. He is a recognised columnist in South Africa and is regularly present on South African radio and television to discuss ways that policy and people can challenge the status quo. He is also the co-founder of The 12.01 Project – a documentary filmmaking company that focuses on up-scaling solutions to social and environmental problems.
Pierre’s primary focus of interest is the development of systems that reduce the incentives for centralised control, misrepresentation of information and the predication of prejudice. With the ability to work remotely, Pierre is an avid traveller and uses this opportunity to facilitate his passions for intercultural cooperation and understanding, coordination of global projects and innovative economic systems.
