Habib

Known for his work as a sports science researcher and as the current Mr. South Africa, Dr. Habib Noorbhai is set to release his very first book, Heart, this November in Cape Town.
Structured in three parts, Heart tackles the inferior vena cava (the root to his life) before delving into what he calls the superior vena cava (the meat of his career). The final instalment (the aorta) looks at the way forward for the current Mr. South Africa and how one will find fulfilment from leading from the heart.

The book looks at the roots of Noorbhai's life (who is now based in Cape Town) and how we all are provided with the same platform to evoke a sustainable and innovative difference in the lives of others but each and every one of us has a different path/journey.

“If I can contribute towards five percent of difference making, then for me, that would be a significant contribution, and I continue aiming to give a 110 percent. I am just an ordinary guy attempting to do extraordinary things, with a foundation of heart.” - Habib Noorbhai

This is an event for book lovers, sports science fans as well as entrepreneurs who want to gain valuable insight into the journey of a passionate man, hoping to use his life to further make a difference in the world.

Launch Date: Monday 27 November 2017

Time: 17H30-19H30

Venue: Two Oceans Aquarium Auditorium, Dock Road, V & A Waterfront, Cape Town
(The most convenient parking for the Two Oceans Aquarium is in Portswood Square, which is opposite the Aquarium in Dock Road).

  • It was a great pleasure to supervise Habib Noorbhai. He has unique abilities that I have not previously experienced in any of the PhD students I have assisted. I have not ever experienced this combination of personal abilities and drives in any other student. Other characteristics that I appreciated are his ability to be fearless – he is not daunted by any task he sets himself – and his desire to push the boundaries of knowledge, regardless of the personal consequences.

    ~ Prof Tim Noakes, Emeritus Professor, University of Cape Town

  • Habib was warmly welcomed by the Redbacks team and staff and fitted in well. He carried out his duties diligently and efficiently. The players and staff had only had praise for his experise and enthusiasm during the CLT20 tournament and this was much appreciated by all. Habib also showed initiative outside his core duties by assisting the support staff on training days and always doing this to the best of his abilities. During this time, Habib had been well-organised, reliable and responsible.

    ~ Simon Cain, South Australian Redbacks Cricket, 2010

  • The service that I received from Habib Noorbhai was more than satisfactory. Habib was considerate about the fact that I had limited assistance with very limited time. He was more than helpful in terms of structuring my work, checking the content, and all other features of my work. I would recommend his assistance to any other person who needs guidance in similar tasks. Mr Noorbhai was patient, understanding and encouraging at all times. I would like to thank Mr Noorbhai for his assistance with my thesis completion.

    ~ Nicholas Christelis, University of Cape Town student, 2014.

  • Whomever Habib speaks or presents to, he does so with such enthusiasm, practically and is highly adaptable to his audience and the genre. It is a pleasure to listen to his unique insights and perspectives. One can't help but feel inspired to do and be more after interacting with him.
