Conscious Marketing and why it is the way to go in 2021.
As a business owner – are you tired of pushing, jostling, hustling for the buck you make?  Are you tired of watching your page likes stagnate, tired of featuring your hearts work – and having little or no reaction from your audience?  Are you tired of the feast and famine journey that your business is taking?
Conscious Marketing, also called Millennial Marketing or Mindful Marketing
is all about becoming still, aware and conscious of some key life principles that Robyn invites you to embrace in your business in 2021.  Come and join us and spend some of your priceless time going on an inward journey towards outward growth, evolution and abundance.

Hello Marketing my old friend

Providing a more in-depth understanding of what it truly is and why it is imperative for companies to incorporate marketing as part of the core foundation of the business. The fourth industrial revolution is here and all companies need to embrace it and go digital with websites and social media. The trick is your digital efforts need to be developed strategically from a good solid overall marketing plan and strategy. We will also look at and explore the various different marketing channels available and learn how to work smart, not expensively hard.
Good marketing is within the reach of all businesses.
Chris Kolbe studied a Bcomm Marketing at Stellenbosch University. He has been working since the age of 14 starting as Golden Feather and building up to Marketing Manager for Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing. Over the many years Chris has worked in a variety of different industries ranging from Radio, Media, Engineering, and Agriculture. One of the costs of getting a degree in life he decided to cash in his entrepreneurial core to go corporate. After 7 years of the corporate world, Chris is back to being an entrepreneur by offering the experience, skills, and insights he has gained as a marketing and business development consultant. This lead to the birth of Live2Dream. Live2Dream provides a ground up personalised consulting service to help companies be courageous and embrace marketing as part of their businesses foundation.

‘Train Naked’ with Pierre du Plessis, our last Business Club meeting for 2020

To train naked is to show up just as you are, without pretence, masks or bs. It is to live and work intentionally, to design and train for the life and career you desire. The ancient Greeks trained in the nude and competed naked in the Olympics, they literally had skin in the game. The word for gymnasium in Greek, gumnasia, literally means to train naked. These gyms were not only for physical training, they also had dedicated spaces for intellectual exercise, philosophy, teaching and conversation.
We train to compete and succeed. We practice over and over in order to nail a presentation. We must then also be training just as hard to become better human beings, to live meaningful lives, to do work that matters, and to thrive in chaos.
This keynote and book are calls to train naked, to have skin in the game and start training for the ultimate marathon, life.
It speaks of identity, purpose, ethics and along with a selection of life changing practices, they aim to inspire each one to take charge, get skin the game and train. www.thisispierreduplessis.com

Beat your competition by identifying your REAL USP”

Avontuur Breakfast – “Beat your competition by identifying your REAL USP”
Like the rest of the world, South Africa is moving into the 4th Industrial Revolution and Artificial Intelligence is becoming a very real part of our existence. Yet there is still much value to be placed on human connection. And human connection in the business context cannot be authentic without knowing and communicating your unique differentiator. For owner run businesses who compete against large corporate multinationals, it is THIS that will set you apart, and NOT your service offering.
We need to know what differentiates us in order to sell ourselves, and let’s face it – business people HAVE to sell themselves. Although I operate in the recruitment sector, the application is very similar to business people “recruiting” clients.
Learning your differentiator in the marketplace in not as simple as coming up with a value statement. People buy from people, and they only do that if you are truly one of a kind and have instilled trust in them. It is important to realise the subtle difference between marketing yourself and not being arrogant about it. I find that a lot of people confuse modesty with humility, when in fact it is not humility to underplay one’s strengths.
Whether you are in business, changing jobs, or trying to get a promotion, you can’t succeed until you can quantify and communicate your intrinsic value add, and learn how to sell yourself as a result of that.


Chantelle Botha
Chantelle has spent over a decade in recruitment from the agency perspective, she has sat in the manager’s chair where she has recruited her own staff, and has spent a significant amount of time in solution based sales. She has been fortunate to have worked for one of SA’s leading job boards, two of the top recruitment agencies, and one of the biggest privately held colleges in SA. In most of these companies, she has broken records and improved revenue and performance. She has built a reputation as a rainmaker simply because she sees things differently and believes that no problem can’t be solved.
Some years ago, she started coaching candidates on various aspects of job search (CV and profile optimisation, interview coaching etc.) More recently, whilst at the helm of the CTU Campus in Stellenbosch, she has facilitated CV and interview workshops for tertiary students entering the job market, as well as provided advice to companies and Line Managers on how best to maximise their process for cost-saving and employee retention. It is this passion and ability to impart valuable knowledge that people can implement immediately that led to starting her own consultancy.
Currently she works with job seekers, Line Managers, Recruitment Agencies and Schools & Tertiary Institutions. Her aim is to bring a fresh perspective to every aspect of recruitment by helping individuals to identify and communicate their intrinsic value add and using this to effectively sell themselves
