I’ve always been an out of box thinker, free spirit and a pave-my-own-way kind of guy. With a diverse set of interests: creativity (creative strategy), writing, spirituality, kenjutsu, photography, hiking and entrepreneurship. I enjoy being stimulated and not being confined to the conventional boxes society compels us to adopt.
Yet, I’ve always had a passion for working with people and helping to solve their challenges where possible.
After school I decided to study Marketing, not law as originally planned – as I was attracted to the tools that I would learn in the Marketing field, and how those tools can be used to satisfy customer needs.
I worked two part time jobs to put myself through university; and after four years I graduated with my degree and was ready to take on the world.
14 years later and having worked in various industries, on some of the biggest brands in the world as Marketing and Brand Manager on Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Strongbow to name but a few – as well as lecturing Marketing, Economics, Advertising, Management Practice and Operations Management at some of the biggest colleges in South Africa – I decided it was time I followed my heart, and use my skills and passion to impact the world in a different way.
After several years of making hundreds of millions of dollars for big brands and corporates – cultivating a powerful skillset combination of practical insight driven strategy, effective implementation and understanding how to lead diverse teams to achieve great results; I wanted to use those same skills to help entrepreneurs and organisations grow and achieve their objectives.
I’ve always had a passion brewing deep down inside of me to make the world a better place; helping others achieve their goals and dreams is one way that helps me realise my mission.
I also always had the desire to create something of my own, that would empower people and organisations to solve problems. I therefore coined the term (being a naturally creative and idealistic soul) and founded “idreate” in alignment with that mission.
Not only did I want to work on various projects and ideas that would help make the world a better place, but also achieve this by helping others to do the same.
We don’t claim to be gurus nor to be perfect, but we are always learning, growing and improving. And we’ll pass on our learnings and experiences to keep you inspired and empowered too.
I am selective in the clients I choose to work with, as I believe time is valuable and it’s the only currency that can never be replaced.
So I will only work with clients who are serious about putting in the work, applying our advice, and who are open to being challenged and using their business to positively impact the world (whether globally or in your own local community).
The rewards for developing conscious and social entrepreneurs are not just financial, but can have a broader lasting positive impact as well.
I look forward to partnering and collaborating with you on this exciting journey.
