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. The video below is from one of my talks. You can get the full scoop on my specialty as a speaker by clicking here.
What started as a casual leisure activity in 2015 has evolved to playing a significant role in growing the esport of Rocket League in Sub Saharan Africa. It has also informed much of my speaking content on the role that gaming will play in any future ‘metaverse’. 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. You can dip in on my channel here: Rocket League Grey Beard
