Supersprout bio.
Mariette van den Heever is the founder and owner of SUPERSPROUT.  As an artist and researcher in the health and wellness field she stumbled on the concept of micro-greens. She was stunned to discover the immense health benefits and the versatility and uses of the product. Being a bit of a health freak herself, she anticipated the possibilities for developing the product. In 2013 she started experimenting with growing methods and different varieties and eventually came up with the current package, which yields very satisfactory results and is still cost-effective. She experimented with various other products, but to date the micro-green kits and sprouting kits are still in huge demand.When Mariette became aware of the degree of genetic manipulation to which present day foods are subject, she became fanatic abou theirloom plants and especially vegetables. She has gone to great lengths to acquire a huge repertoire of seeds which she grows and sells in slabs, which has proved to be a very effective way of nurturing growth from seed into plants which are ready for transplant. SUPERSPROUT products are sold at neighbourhood food markets e.g. he Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, at several Christmas markets and lifestyle markets such as Kamers and the Stellenbosch Cheese and Wine Festival and are also ordered by companies such as Wellness.Warehouse.
Recently Mariette has teamed up with Wim Koppenol, who shares her passion for growing things and together they have developed  several new initiatives. His enthusiasm, special talents and propensity for business is taking SUPERSPROUT to a new level.

If municipal inefficiencies and rolling blackouts affect your life,  be at our next Breakfast club meeting with Chad Hyland, CEO of Ikapa Power Management. 

business breakfast logo

Chad Hyland, certified energy manager (CEM), founded iKapaPower Management in 2008.
In this period SA had been experiencing major energy issues from municipal inefficiencies, rolling blackouts and continuous administrative headaches.

Chad’s core focus at that time was based on back-up power supply and quickly changed direction after spending endless hours understanding the energy crisis alongside the policy makers NERSA (National Energy Regulator) & Eskom. This change saw the beginning of our Smart Metering department which essentially performs the function of a municipality on a smaller and private scale.

Here Chad was able to independently audit  clients both on water & electricity which resulted in the exposure of inaccurate billing, incorrect supply and estimated readings. This utility auditing gave our clients the power to claim back incorrect charges, had their accounts credited and their supply matching their needs resulting in tangible savings and lower operational costs.

At the age of 37 Chad has great hopes for both the residential and commercial sectors managed under the iKapaPower team in the continuous drive to reduce our clients utility spend.
Being one of the only companies who provide an end to end solution gives iKapaPower Management and our clients the leading edge in power & water reduction (consumption), and in mapping their green/renewable energy goals with correctly specked solutions resulting in tangible savings and off-grid dependency, ensuring that our clients have the power!

Personal Mastery at Avontuur Business Breakfast Club


If our lives are a masterpiece then there is obviously an art to making them so.
Paying attention to ourselves holds the key.

Self-attention does not require any special skill although there are many techniques to help us do this effectively, techniques to observe our responses to anything and everything that is going on around us.
Too often we focus on the events of our lives instead of how we feel about them, what our immediate and longer term reactions are.
However, these reactions are the greatest markers to who we really are – they are so personal, intimate and unique; for example, we know well that what pleases me, might offend you.
The circumstances of our lives continually provide us with opportunities to reveal ourselves to ourselves – are you paying attention?
And what is the point of self-revelation anyway? I shall provide some answers to this question and how to go about it.

Imagine your perfectly orderly world, where mostly smooth sailing has been the order of the day with only minor swells disrupting your harmony.

Suddenly, the small swells become big swells, turning into huge waves, allowing you no time to breathe or come up for air.  You have no life jacket and no support to depend on. You feel like you are drowning at sea…. all alone!

How do you get to dry land, without losing focus or motivation?

Creativity as the Art of Self-Discipline – An Exploration into Mastering our Creative Selves. Beatrix Pickard-Cambridge our guest speaker in October 2015

As Clarissa Pinkola Estes says:’ Creativity is a shapechanger. One moment it takes this form, the next that.’
It is in the creation of a painting, in the tending of a garden, in the nurturing of a marriage and the building of a business.
It is in our ideas, our thinking and in our doing.
So what is this essence that flows through us like a river? How do we access it and what form does it take for us? How do we connect with it and harness it to elevate our business lives and our personal lives to that place of passion where we thrive and not merely survive.
And how do we anchor it to become the driving force behind everything we do? Creativity is the ability to create, it implies an inspiration and an action, and integration that must become manifest. So let’s explore this underutilized asset of Self.
