Keynote Topics

Using human stories and challenging circumstances, this talk will shift your views on intuition, and ultimately on interconnectedness.


To quote Rudyard Kipling :


‘If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too’


Yes, engaging our intuition can make a special and positive difference in our daily lives, work and relationships.



When you want to motivate, persuade, or be remembered, start with a story of human struggle and eventual triumph. It will capture people’s hearts – by first attracting their brains.




The important role intuition plays in our daily lives


Their response to tragedy will make you weep. The Mendi is one of many extraordinary stories used in this engaging presentation.




A romp through the last 200 years


This young country has a fascinating and complex history.

The Battle of Isandlwana, 22nd January 1879. British defeat or Zulu victory?


Scarcely 10 days after the invasion of Zululand began, disaster struck at Isandlwana.


Whilst Lord Chelmsford was away with 60% of the force in search of the main Zulu Army, the remaining force of 1 800 British soldiers was overwhelmed by 25 000 Zulu warriors.


Imagine the courage of facing modern rifles with spear and shield?


In less than 2 hours more than 1 300 British soldiers lay dead in what some view as the greatest military defeat the British suffered at the hand of a native army in their entire colonial history.
