[/et_pb_text][et_pb_testimonial admin_label=”Testimonial” author=”Robert Frost” url_new_window=”off”]

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

[/et_pb_testimonial][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_2″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left”]

This Is My Story

The reason I get out of bed every morning is to help you do work that makes you proud.

This includes the inner work to help you become the best version of yourself and its resultant outer manifestation so that you can make a difference to:

  • Those you love (your family and friends)
  • Those you serve (the company you work for and your clients)
  • The place you call home (your country and community)

I’m known as an inspirational speaker, philosopher and intellectual. My clients call me ‘the Business Generator’ because of the strategies I employ to help them increase their business.

I can live with these descriptors. But where I add real value to my clients is through my relationships, built up over the last 20 years, with some astounding individuals.  They can have a huge impact on you, both personally and professionally, if you let them in. You’ll find some of them on this website under Board of Advisors.

Where I really shine for my clients, however, is in the writing space. My direct response copy has generated more than R200-million for them and I’ve put a whole bunch of them on the map by ghostwriting their books.

Where did this all start?

I come from a family with a rich history in academia, politics, medicine, philosophy, theology, publishing and business.

It was largely due to the larger-than-life exploits of my grandfather (Senator Bruckner de Villiers), uncle (Professor Raoul de Villiers) and father (Dr. Bruckner de Villiers) that my quest to become a ‘man of knowledge’ was piqued.

My search for knowledge and meaning has taken me on an awesome journey of discovery into the world of meaning, purpose, philosophy, psychology, spiritualism, quantum mechanics and neuroscience, amongst others.

Today, I share this knowledge through my writing, training, speaking and consulting with my clients and friends.
