I am a professional motivational speaker with more than 19 years of public speaking experience.  Having started public speaking from the age of 14 in high school, my public speaking skills position me to be able to convey my message to my audience in a more practical and thought provoking way. With an inborn public speaking gift and years of corporate experience , I am not only able to touch on business related topics , I am also able to provide motivation to people who need direction concerning key life decisions that they need to make.

My unique attributes. 

When dealing with business related topics I draw from my own experience as an entrepreneur who has to navigate through an ever changing business environment. This makes me one of the most relevant, and practical speakers.

Television and radio platforms.

I was featured on various shows that have positioned me to speak to thousands and millions of people per time via mass media.

Radio stations that hosted me include: Jozi FM, Radio Pulpit, Tetha FM, Thobel FM and Radio Alpha, with the later having given me a slot for a complete leadership programme. These platforms where part of what assisted me to sharpen my speaking skills.

Apart from radio I featured on DSTV channel 331 where I was speaking to the entire continent of Africa on relevant life issues.


Topics and Brief

Topics covered in my presentations.

1.      Reproducing yourself as a leader.

The success of leadership is based on the leader’s ability to develop likeminded people that have the unique ability to produce results. Furthermore many companies struggle after the leader leaves or pass away.

Which is why reproducing yourself as a leader becomes the most ideal way to resolve the succession problem and help your organization to stay profitable. The key benefit of reproducing yourself as a leader is that the baton is passed on to somebody who is already in tune with company systems, processes and corporate culture.

One of the greatest business leaders: Jack Welch, joined General electric in 1960 as a junior engineer and went on to become its CEO in 1980, growing its market value from $ 12 billion to $ 280 billion. Having been acquainted with the systems, brands and the culture of General Electric he  knew which changes to make to get the business where he aspire to take it.

The following are the benefits.

·         The company will always have somebody that understands it corporate culture.

·         You will also have somebody that has a passion for the company and its products or services.

·         Helps to facilitate the process of adaptation of systems to match current market trends.

2.      The power of human capital.

In this fast paced economic environment, and changing consumption patterns , one of the most important resources that can keep the company relevant and gaining momentum is the knowledge and the skills of its own people. What shapes and cultivate corporate culture which is the driving force and the DNA of your organization is people. The capacity of your  people will make or break you organization.

It is high time that companies recognise that the quality of your labour is what determines the position of your business on the market.  Companies never grow beyond the capacity it has in the form of labour to take them to the next level. It is therefore key for businesses to invest in developing its people to maximise their potential to position  to compete in  fast paced economies.

80% of a company’s value is not determined by its buildings, equipment etc., but by its people.

Somebody once asked what if you develop people and then they go : But my question is what if you do not develop them and they stay.

The following are key simple steps that will allow you to develop people in your organization to stay competitive

a). Attract and retain people who have the potential and the skills you need.

b).Have an aggressive system that helps you to attract talent.

c). Create an environment  that is conducive for your people to put their skills and talents to work.

d). Have monitored individual development plans for all your employees.

e). Align employee training and development with strategy.

3.      Adapt or Die.

( Doing business within a constantly changing economic  environment).

Many companies have been relegated from being market leaders to being at the backseat of business.

A great deal of them are currently not able to operate  profitably because they are unable to offer the market what is currently being demanded. But it all comes to one thing : many companies do not want to  interrupt themselves , they would rather be interrupted by competition and the market. And many times it is too late for them to catch up. 

In 1976 one of the employees at Kodak invented a digital camera, but the company was not ready to adapt at that time. Thirty years later they declared themselves insolvent.

what then should companies do to stay competitive?. The answer is ADAPT. 

b). Have a structured innovation process.
c). Have a tight innovation filtering process.
d).Value market intelligence.
e). Move to commercialization at the right time.

4.      .Visionary leadership.

As the popular saying goes : You can’t take people where you have not been.

Who are visionary leaders.
In essence the concept of visionary leadership is based on the premise that , it is those who can see the end from the beginning that are qualified to lead.

Who then is a visionary leader?

·         They  are people that have the picture of the end product before the process of development starts ( a snapshot of the future).

·         Visionary leaders are people who are driven by the mental picture of how things should be rather than the status quo.

·         Visionary leaders spend time developing their followers to see what they as leaders are seeing.

·         Visionary leaders have the unique ability to plan leadership succession successfully.

·         Visionary leaders are people who are able to craft a vision that outlives them.

5.      Developing a healthy corporate culture

·         Corporate culture is mainly the way things are done in that organization or better said, why we do what we do.

·         It is the driving force within that organization.

·         Culture is what reveals the DNA of the organization , which is the lifeblood of that particular organization. However, the culture of the organization is shaped by  values.

All organizations have to be vision focused and value drive.

The following are the reasons why values are important in shaping corporate culture.

  • They communicate what is important.
  • They dictate personal involvement.
  •  They  influence overall behaviour.
  •  They inspire people to action.
  •  They determine what distinguishes the organization.

6.      Creating your world.

(The ideal plan about life  is that we must  change our current circumstances which are in most cases what we don’t want into what we see with the eyes of your imagination)That transition will take a deliberate process of action.

The characteristics of those who will create their world.


·         Dream the world they  want. The human mind is the creative faculty of our being that has the capacity to create. Once a person possesses a dream that is big enough it is not easy to talk him out of that dream because he has already been where he wants to be through the eyes or their imagination.

·         Have the big three: Hindsight, insight and foresight.

·         Are discontent with the status quo. People that are happy with their current situation are those who have reached  a comfort zone and are not ready to move out of that circle.

·         Calculate the costs. What will it take for me to reach my dream.

·         Gather the tools or resources that will serve as enablers for their dream to materialize.

·         Cultivate habits that will support the fulfilment their dream.

·         Have a personal activity plan. This should outline all the day to day activities that will advance the course of reaching their goals.

·         Develop the discipline to complete activities on their personal activity plan
