From Suspect to Success, our topic for May Breakfast Club at Avontuur with Lance Brown.

 Lance Brown is a living testament to his “Creating Opportunities” philosophy and presentations.
Growing up in Mitchell’s Plain on the Cape Flats, Lance dared to reach for the stars. From the small seed of a basic job as a delivery driver and filing clerk in his twenties, he discovered an aptitude for taxation and a road to a brighter world.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in Financial Management through University of South Africa and is now a tax consultant for one of the world’s leading consulting firms. Lance is an author of a book titled: “The ‘Driver’ of Change” which is aimed at inspiring employees to find opportunities within their organizations.

In his talk he will explain how you can create opportunities, instead of waiting for them to happen.

BRING A MALE GUEST WITH YOU AND ONLY PAY FOR ONE SEAT.

‘Embracing your uniqueness – being a platypus in a world full of ducks’; our Business Club topic this April 2017

From the time we are born, we are being put into boxes of expected behaviour. The boxes encompass our whole being and almost everything we do, from the way we dress to the way we wear our hair. It is cultural, based on our sex, based on our age, based on our religion, based on who knows what else. Boxes inside boxes upon boxes, all filled with ways in which we should think and be and act.
But what would happen if you could give yourself the space to live your life, and to be who you actually are? Not this construct of other people’s thoughts, this poor shrivelled thing, cowering inside a tower of boxes, shrinking yourself to fit others’ expectations and ideas of who and what you should be, think, say and do?

BIO:
Melanie Britz is the author of the self-help memoir Dive in: Unlocking happiness and miracles by exploring the hidden parts of us and the universe we live in. This wide-ranging conversation with her 20-year old self is all about a journey in emotional mastery, understanding the world and her purpose in it better and moving into a boxless space of self-love and self-acceptance. It is filled with lessons, wisdom and practical tools that has a wide application for us all.
An ex-journalist and newspaper newseditor, Melanie is currently working as a property strategist with leading Somerset West estate agency, Harcourts Platinum, by day. During non-office hours though, her calling and nature as a writer/spiritual storyteller emerges.

Her website www.showinguptoday.com is a platform for people to share their wisdom and lessons with their own younger selves and she recently published Fabulous 365, a collection of affirmations, reflections and inspirations to make 2017 our best year yet.
