Compliance with Melanie Coetzee at Avontuur Business Club

What is COMPLIANCE?

Why would I want to do something so mundane considering the previous corporate successes which I had reached in my professional career?
There is nothing better than finding your niche in life. Most people struggle for years, often a lifetime, to find their happy place in work. There are many reasons for this:

  • We all grow up institutionalised;
  • We grow up fearful of failure;
  • We grow up supressing our own authenticity.

During school, I took both art and academic subjects. I have always been a little bit different and artistic so when I had to choose my career path, I faced the choice and chose law. How do I reconcile the artistic side of my brain with my academics? That is the secret to my happiness and I will be sharing the joys of living authentically AND finding your success path.


A bit about me:
Between being born in Burgersdorp, growing up on a farm in Barkly-East and ending up in the largest corporate property law firm in SA pretty much sums up my meander. I obtained both my BPROC and LLB degrees at UPE in 1999 where after I worked at a law firm in London for a few years. Upon returning to SA, I took up a position at Buchanan Boyes attorneys and worked there as an attorney, conveyancer and notary until 2020, 10 years of which as a partner.

Until breast cancer halted me in my tracks in 2018. As with all cancer survivors, I questioned my WHY and whether I was really being fulfilled in the fast lane. In addition, I realised that I badly neglected to continue my self development and just being present in the moment during the years in corporate and based my “success” in life on the amount of money that I had in the bank. I also compromised massively on other areas in my life in my quest to be successful.

In 2020, I made the massive leap and left the corporate law firm to start my own small compliance business. What a leap to say the least!
Looking back, I now realise that I never really felt fulfilled or took in most of what was going on inside and in my environment. Since I left corporate, I have realised my own professional boundaries. I am in control of my time and my income and enjoy every moment of generating connections and doing business with people who appreciate my skills and knowledge.

Understanding the cost of advertising, Business breakfast topic with Chrisitelle Lochner.

Understanding the cost of advertising:

Most of us have a love-hate relationship with advertising, because we have no clue which avenues are the best to choose from.

Between printed media, pay-per-click, direct marketing and vehicle or shop signage, it can be confusing to figure out which would be most valuable.

The aim of this talk is to help you to understand how to break down the cost of each of these types of advertising into a cost per impression, and help you to understand which are most likely to generate sales for your business now and over time

Last minute presentations, we give you the skills at Avontuur Business Club

Aletta Rochat is passionate about helping you speak like a professional. So many people are talented and hardworking. They miss out on opportunities because they lack confidence to speak up in meetings, or to present in front of others. As a result, their voice is not heard and often their superb ideas never see the light of day. In addition, we never seem to have enough time to prepare for our presentations. We know we could do better, but don’t know how.

Aletta is a Certified World Class Speaking Coach as well as a Distinguished Toastmaster. She has spoken and trained in 21 countries. She delivers keynotes, dynamic training and coaching. She is a master story-teller who captivates her audiences.

Last Minute Presentation Secrets is the template you need to speak confidently, even if you have NO time to prepare. You will leave this event empowered, knowing exactly how to speak and connect with your audience. This is what you need to move from anxiety to confidence!

SELF-MANAGEMENT; The foundation of Success!

This is Success as you define it.

This talk will speak to anyone in Business, Relationships, Parenting, Communications and Decision-making/Start-up business planning.

Why do I face procrastination at the most inopportune times? What can I do if I often find myself at the brink of burnout time and time again? I have dreams, yet am frustrated with the fears that keep holding me back? I speak and feel I am not heard…HOW COME? Why is my team not effective? You will have your own questions, bring them along.

What if, small changes and insights could make the world of difference to your experience of life in these instances? With the potential to change the outcomes you are currently experiencing!

Join me as I unpack SELF-MANAGEMENT in its simplest form.

What you don’t know about success, our topic for November 2017 with Chris Van Rooyen.

Probably one of the most documented topics of the modern era is
“How to be successful”.
One cannot pass a bookstore or browse the Internet without crossing the path of some expert waxing away about how to be a success in life, health, business, career, faith, etc. The list is seemingly endless and we are pounded with thousands of hypotheses viewed from multiple perspectives.
Despite this plethora of information we still find the vast majority of people falling significantly short of the success they so ardently set out to achieve. Why?
Where I cannot profess to have all the answers to ‘success’, I have over the years observed three glaring non-negotiable truths that will take you to the pinnacle of any dream you may pursue. But, you may not like these truths. Why? Because they do not offer a quick fix or a smooth ride. But they do offer an absolute guarantee.

Chris van Rooyen
Coach/Facilitator/Speaker/Thinker

I began my career in the Advertising/Marketing Industries. This career channel led me to being Creative Director, Marketing Strategist, specialist in consumer behaviour, Director and Owner of numerous companies from Online Resource Management to Marketing Consulting and Coaching. I am currently the owner of The Business Gym, a Business Training/Coaching initiative.
I am blessed with the Creative Curse. That simply means I cannot look at anything as a static state, but always see things in terms of their possibilities. I see the change potential in just about everything. As Creative Director for numerous International Advertising Agencies my background has led me down a path of thinking differently and thereby identifying how, through simple but dedicated changes, people and situations can be improved dramatically. This aptitude I apply to my work, to the people I deal with and help, to my family life and to my personal life.
I have always had a fascination for the miracles and anomalies that surround human behaviour. We, the human race, are profoundly influenced by our perceptions of life, and in many cases it can affect our very being, resulting in a contented life balance or extreme emotional imbalance. Our response to all things is influenced enormously by our life attitude and it always amazes me how much we can control it to our benefit, or how it can control us to our detriment.
