A little bit about me:
I was born in a small town called Cradock situated in the eastern part of South Africa. Started my first school year in Kimberley and matriculated at Jan van Riebeeck High School in Cape Town.
After military service, I studied at Stellenbosch University and graduated in 1976. Do not ask me what I have learned, because I have forgotten most of it. Today I am enrolled at the University of Life.
I am married to a beautiful and supportive woman and we have three lovely daughters. And a grandson and two granddaughters!
For 30½ years I was a teacher in public schools; the last part of my career as principal of DF Malan High School in Bellville.
A few years back, I made a career change and I am now self-employed. I’d like to work for anyone who wants, and can afford, me. (The afford part is supposed to be a joke!) I offer:
• Inspirational talks
• Leadership development
• Strategic sessions
• Team building
I love people with a passion for life. For that matter, anything with passion! In the same breath; I detest people who are wasting their precious life.
My interests: Writing, motivational talks, travel, the youth, leadership, outdoors, cooking and red wine. Not always in that particular order.
My motto’s: If you don’t make dust, you will eat dust and I have a dream.
