Experience

Summary

My first career was in IT Security. I was the guy who stopped hackers from getting into the bank accounts of millions of customers in South Africa. At some point I realised how much I loved people, so I moved into sales, marketing and training.

Portfolio

Built an influential Twitter reputation

Very strategically built a influential Twitter following. After experimenting with buying Twitter followers, I went back to the drawing board by reducing the people I follow, engaging with CEOs, economists & journalists in dialogues, asking questions and debates. Many follow me back.

Help Motivational Speaker to amplify Personal Brand

Helped a motivational speaker to see value in merging blog and website into one platform using Wordpress. Complete intergration with social media when posting new content. Added a professional theme with functionality built-in reducing the need for web develpment. Focus on content marketing.

LinkedIn strategy for Recruitment

Helped the client change their thinking about using LinkedIn for recruitment. I conducted one-on-one coaching with the CEO to see the value of LinkedIn over other platforms for online recruitment. She has since expanded the company substantially and intergrated LinkedIn into the CRM.

Ideal team

My best teams are people with attention to detail who can allow me to focus on idea generation, relationship building while they take care of details.. Allow me to work at my own pace because I work harder, faster as I approach deadlines.
