Meet the other Dr Who (Hu).
He has a mission to build bridges of mutual understanding and insight between China and South Africa and pioneer a new model of collaboration to inspire the world.
"I think South African companies have a huge contribution to make to the African continent and I would like to be part of the process which makes that happen, " said Hu Da Ping.
Hu, the first business coach in China to use the tenets of the Daoist religion as his primary guide, plans to take a delegation to South Africa this year to learn about the country and interact with it's leaders.
Hu is an executive coach in China who uses the wisdom of Daoism, Zen Buddhism and Confusionism to help people and companies to become happier and thus more successful.
Hu sees collaboration between the East and West as the formula for a new way of thinking and innovation to benefit all of humanity.
The three main religious influences in China are finding resonance with the ruling Communist Party as the country's leaders seek a value system that will placate and stabilise a rapidly-growing middle-class looking to secure its wealth and property.
This awakening has been manifest in the official celebration of the birthday of the ancient Chinese safe Confucius and encouraging the nation to celebrate festivals such as Qing Ming when people return home to clean the graves of the ancestors as a mark of respect.
Daoism advocates a process of self realisation and "letting go" to allow the best in people to emerge as the force in their business, personal and civil lives.
Hu Da Ping is not in fact either a medical doctor or a doctor of letters.
His students refer to him as "Dr Hu" out of respect born of the huge positive impact he has made on their lives with his coaching methods.
"We will bring medical and educational facilities and we will learn from South Africans, " he said.
Hu sees a process of mutual learning between the two countries as the Chinese establish businesses in South Africa.
"We don't regard South Africa as merely a market but as a partner with whom we can co-operate to forge a new model of sustainable business and economic development," he said.
He believes that a new education system and way of conucting busibess could emerge from Sino-South African collaboration.
"We want to build a long-term relationship with South Africa," Hu said.
Hu sees the inspiration of the late Nelson Mandela as the guiding force of the project and regards Mandela as the most important world leader in more than a century.
Hu is one of a growing band of thought leaders in China who hold Mandela and the example he set in the highest esteem.
The overwhelming majority of Chinese intellectuals, students and business leaders immediately acknowledge Mandela' s contribution to humanity through his example of forgiveness and magnanimity.
Hu was born and grew up in the Western Chinese province of Xinjiang.
He worked as an investment banker and stock-broker before reading a book on Buddhism which led him to business coaching.
Hu recently met with Wang Zhenyao, Dean of the Chinese Philanthropy Research Institute (CPRI) in Beijing who was a senior government official before founding the CPRI five years ago.
Mr Wang is the author of a best-selling book which seeks to give readers a better understanding of the government system and act as a bridge with citizens.
The Institute is pioneering a new approach to philanthropy in China and establishing funding relationships with global foundations to promote health care for the elderly, child welfare and the training of philanthropy professionals.
