The Art And Purpose of Thinking Reframed
Naretha Pretorius | TEDxDurban

Naretha Pretorius explores the art and purpose of thinking, reframed. The way we understand thinking and reframing is unpacked, while looking at how and why an individual or organisation can or should reframe their thinking, and why it matters. Naretha also dives deeper into the art of asking the right questions, while sharing her personal story of transformation. Naretha Pretorius is the Campus Head at the IIE Vega School, Durban Campus. She’s an integral coach and a reframed thinking facilitator, with experience in creative problem-solving for innovation, design thinking, purpose development and strategic decision making. Her approach in finding solutions and reframed thinking sits in the art of asking ‘the right’ questions.
