Naturally curious, I try to use my life and work experiences as lessons to do better and be better. I believe that for the collective to progress, it is important that we each share whatever knowledge and wisdom we have garnered. I am comfortable exploring a wide range of topics, using the lessons to create greater understanding across multiple industries. We need to be fully engaged in the human experience. We need to draw from everything at our disposal to ensure that our little patch of this earth is better for us having been in it.
I have facilitated, hosted and been programme director for various events, conferences, workshops, and seminars. I speak on different topics and customise my keynotes and talks each according to the audience and brief. I can also develop custom talks for specific occasions, delving into innovation, technology, lifestyle, marketing, and branding, amongst others.
- Understanding Content in a Digital World – In this talk, drawing from my experience in magazine, television and media consulting for brands, I dig into the evolution of media and storytelling and how we need to change our perspectives on content if we are going to make sense of it in a time when the noise is incessant. We are all curators, we are all media, whether individuals, brands, organisations, companies, etc.
- Being Human: Person As A Brand – I am fascinated by this idea of a ‘person as a brand’ and, drawing from the varied life and work experiences I have, I look at the decisions we make and how those decisions impact on the lives we live, especially around careers and work life.
- The Things My Children Have Taught Me – There is no manual for raising children, we all just stumble along doing our best. At the same time, the lessons they teach you, indirectly and directly, apply to the work and business environment.
Other areas I speak on include, but aren’t limited to The Heart Of Storytelling, Career Transitions, Redefining Success, Finding Purpose and Fatherhood.
