Let's Not Bullsh*t Each Other - your business could be doing

30 April 2018
Venue: TBC
Location: Bahrain

In 1999 I cut my teeth at IOL (Independent Newspaper’s digital division – www.iol.co.za) as Marketing & Sales Director. I later became the Managing Director and I was responsible  for launching a range of websites including 11 newspaper titles including www.theargus.co.zawww.thestar.co.zawww.capetimes.co.za & www.businessreport.co.za.

In 2005 I was the CEO and Founder of one of South Africa’s top digital marketing agencies – Purple Cow, which I sold in 2012.

I have over 15 years of experience in the Internet Marketing and Sales industry and I have been voted as the top speaker by the delegates at 14 out of 15 Sales and Marketing Conferences over the past 3 years.

I now work as a Conversion Optimisation Specialist, Internet Marketing Strategist and Business Coach assisting companies in optimising their sales and marketing channels.

I have worked with many smaller companies and brands and some of the more well-known companies being Vodacom, Frank.net, Tongaat Hulett, Pam Golding Properties, Jeep, Quickbooks, Tempest Car Hire, Virgin Active, The Foschini Group, Renault, TransUnion, Nashua Communications, Panasonic, Bidvest Bank, Nedbank, Nu Metro, Bowman Gilfillan & many more.

I found myself enjoying speaking and being able to share valuable content with hundreds of people at one event and the delegates responded very positively, so much so that I was being invited to speak at more and more conferences.

The conferences were mainly focused around my areas of expertise i.e. Internet Marketing, Small Business Growth and Retail/E-commerce and after speaking at 15 conferences over the past three years I was voted by the delegates as the top speaker at 14 of these conferences.

Title of the Presentation:

Let's Not Bullsh*t Each Other - your business could be doing so much better, so why isn't it?

MY PURPOSE is to help business owners and entrepreneurs to identify major areas that they are either not aware of or haven't tackled in order to boost their current business no matter how well they are currently doing. I assist them in building more sustainable businesses, both profitable & remarkable (yes remarkable so that you stand out heads above your competitors). 

My approach is different & unique: it's fresh, it's innovative and it's REAL.  The centre of my approach is something that very few businesses comprehend let alone implement & that is CONVERSION OPTIMISATION. 

I am a firm believer in working off a Business Model rather than a business plan. My experience from working with over 1000 entrepreneurs in the 12 months has proved this theory right; nobody ever uses or refers to their business plan whereas a Business Model is a living document, far more practical and real. I aggressively follow a customised Business Model with my own businesses & those of my clients very successfully. I consider myself a Growth Hacker (coined by Sean Ellis - Founder of Dropbox) in that I consistently find innovate ways & opportunities to assist them to grow their businesses in ways they had never imagined or even considered.
