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

‘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.
