Hi - and welcome to my world :-)

Early on during the "digital revolution" I started a media business providing in-store radio, television and plasma point-of-sale display to large corporations (most notably the entire Edcon Group - Edgars, Jet, CNA, Boardmans Etc) but clients also included Ster-Kinekor, parastatal Transnet and creative and exciting mining-house Harmony Gold (where I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Nic Alexandre.)

In 2008 I sold my shares and took a nice long sabbatical to spend more time with my three children and do a bit of travelling and thinking about future opportunities. I later got re-involved in my old business (AirMedia), but as a minor shareholder, leaving me lots of time to continue spending with my (now older) children, consulting for small businesses, coaching individual seeking to live the lives they want, writing a little, taking more photographs, and recently working as Operations Manager at KipMcGrath.net (provider of extra lessons to repair, rebuild and enrich) as well as EducationIncorporated.co.za (a unique Boutique School offering).

My focus remains helping people edfine and reach their goals and to optimise their businesses (particularly education-related ones) and I still do a little bit of web design and hosting.

My "next big thing" is everything to do with podcasts - check this out.

I look forward to assisting you too!

Background... My passions include teaching (in general) and coaching and assisting small businesses. I absolutely love being involved in the personal transformations of people (who are ready, willing and able to change) into all they can be. I also specialise in consulting to people starting-up or transforming their businesses (often in a mentoring role) and assisting companies and individuals with goal setting.

I currently spend a lot of my time working with individuals, small businesses and start-ups to clearly define their goals and at the same time register domains, set-up email, design and create their websites, host them and manage their blogging and SEO. This process naturally extends to updating business plans and defining milestones.

I am actively involved at Bryanston High School where I was past chairman of the School Governing Body (after being on the SGB of Bryandale Primary School previously) as well as at KipMcGrath.net and EducationIncorporated.co.za.

I occasionally work with the inspiring Vasintha Pather in delivering Graphic Facilitation sessions to her growing list of Corporate and "blue-chip" clients. Vasintha started, and still heads-up, inter-arise - a company that enables collective effectiveness. This is only one of the numerous valuable courses offerd by inter-arise, aimed at enhancing individual and organisational effectiveness.

I've been involved in live radio and television broadcasting for many years, setting-up several radio stations (Solid Gold, Buwa FM, East Wave, Mix FM) and was part of the team that got South Africa's most successful community television station off-the-ground (Soweto TV).
