Shockingly sold by sellers at the NACSA

2013-12-04T13:06:21+00:00

After leaving home at 6am to attend the National Achievers Congress at the Sandton Convention Centre, I was amped for a great day of valuable content and presentations. Of course after the crazy high fees for the two day congress, I expected a focus on promoting and upskilling entrepreneurs. There was some great content by the likes of Les Brown and some of the other presenters, but there was the ironic sales pitches by many of the presenters who wanted to sell training courses on sales and presentations by selling to people who already PAID for this hoping to get this [...]

2013-04-29T14:36:59+00:00

The benefits and value of doctors in managed healthcare leadership and management I have finally managed to make the time to edit (basic editing of course) the entire video of my presentation at the Managed Healthcare symposium in Johannesburg. The presentation was on: The benefits and value of doctors in managed healthcare leadership and management. The video is just over an hour long, but details my perspective on both the challenges and opportunities in having more doctors in healthcare leadership and managed, especially in the managed healthcare environments. There some controversial views presented, but these are my perspectives and not on [...]

Working in Cape Town, is this another country?

2013-11-12T15:50:33+00:00

Having borne the tedious and long drive down to Cape Town from Pretoria, my fiancé and I and now almost a week in Cape Town. Some may see this as an ordinary visit to the Mother City. Of course, I see this as an amazing experience of varied people in almost a different country. The mindset of everyone is indeed a drastic difference from Pretoria and its hasty rush that we all usually thrive on. Here in the Cape there is almost and unhurried understanding that 'all is well'. With the likes of Silicon Cape based in Cape Town, and some [...]

It was indeed both a pleasure and honour to be invited by the IQPC to present as an expert presenter, for the Joint Simulation and Training Africa 2012.

Facebook adds new email service to replace your original contact methods

2012-06-25T21:13:10+00:00

Facebook has now integrated the new emails of @facebook.com, to promote usage of its own email that is linked to the messages in each profile. This has resulted in many users main contact email being changes for them. This was picked up and reported by bloggers on Saturday, and has now been buzzing on major social media sites. Another possible reason for this move is to limit the access to public users, to users main direct contact email addresses. of course, the emails are the mainstay of the database business model of facebook, and any limitations to such by public users, [...]

Joining SA blogosphere via Amatomu

2017-12-04T20:20:39+00:00

I was chatting to my girlfriend today (updated: as she respectfully was then), about another blogger and some of the fantastic things that she has been doing with her blog. I then spent the rest of the afternoon, pondering why I wasn't a more active part of the SA blogosphere...and could find a single reason, besides sheer, inactivity, just on my blog of course. Well, as a start I have joined the ever popular amatomu site, perhaps to begin with a local but very lekker community of South Africans! Enough said...now to remain more active!

Corporate branding with real people

2011-10-31T08:30:02+00:00

I just read through a chapter in David Meerman Scott's book, Real-time Media and Pr, and noted and interesting dicussion about how companies cotinue to brand their companies with images and people that dont't even work for the company. Be they models, or stock images that are used, it has no direct link to the actual people that work for the company, or what they offer. Agreed, there are those that do, but most companies choose to market and promote their brand with generic images. Many are of the perception that great images will sel their brand better. In actual fact [...]

Social media changes and keeping up with the growth of services

2011-08-02T13:58:31+00:00

In recent weeks there has been a huge change in the dynamic of how social networks are used globally. With the rise of Google+, many have hailed it as a facebook replacement or 'killer'. I disagree as another type of network does not necessarily mean the end of a previous/ older service. I think that there will be a growth of the google+ network whilst the other networks like facebook and twitter will continue to thrive. How so? Its simple actually... Although each type of network has seemingly similar and some overlapping features they also have some unique features too. Facebook [...]
