this is me and what I do

In all likelihood you found this website because of one of the three below activities which keep me active and, in a general sense, out of trouble. At first glance it would seem these are completely different areas of interest. They are, however tied together by what they hold in common: People.

At some level each of these activities afford me the opportunity to meet and engage a wide variety of people which is pretty much my favourite thing. 


Since 2010 I have worked in 14 countries and 900 conferences as either a keynote speaker or as an MC, Facilitator or host. The pandemic of 2020 has altered the course of my speaking where I know have a stronger focus on professional and personal adaptation to and coping with the relentless advance of technology.

I broadcast, play, commentate and do all I can to grow interest in a game that has become the highest paid esport in South Africa.  I stream live and create content around this journey on Youtube and Twitch.
