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.

How to WIN at Buisness, our topic for October at Avontuur Business Club with Lindie Malan.

“How To WIN at Business” 

Your business is your “vehicle of choice” towards your desired future…

Some real questions all business owners should ask themselves…

How will my business look when it is done? Do I have an exit strategy? Will I be able to sell my business? Can we expand or will I be able to hand over and exit?

Are you exhausted by running your business, challenged by crisis management, cash flow issues and managing an ineffective team?

Lindie’s life purpose is to work with business owners to address these questions and other business challenges so that they can win at the game of business!


Lindie is an experienced entrepreneur, business owner, business coach and event speaker. Her 25-year journey in business includes involvement in a family business, a partnership and several successful start-up business ventures.”Being a business owner taught me a few hard lessons like perseverance, to focus and to understand the importance of building a business with real value. Giving up on myself, my goals and dreams has never been an option. I lead from the front and I am congruent in everything I teach and coach my clients!”Lindie’s love for business, her belief in the power of coaching and her drive to change the way entrepreneurs do business, led her to become an ActionCOACH business coach. She has coached more than 100 business owners in various industries on many levels towards achieving significant business results.

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!

Goal Setting with Sonja McKaiser Business Club May 2019

I’m Sonja McKaiser, a coffee-fuelled soulpreneur, and owner of
The Creative Space with Sonja.

I help my clients write their own narrative, through interactive workshops (and one-on-one coaching sessions) that are designed to unlock creativity, define goals, and unleash expression. Using tools such as vision boarding and expressive writing, my clients learn to take charge of their own stories, changing their lives in the process. When I’m not working, I enjoy taking my dogs for walks on the beach and visiting new markets in and around Cape Town.

Goal setting

  • Getting clear on what you want – soul goals ;
  • Your limiting beliefs, and how are they are stopping you from achieving your goals ;
  • How to set and achieve your soul goals

Who are the Millennial’s and what can we learn from them? Avontuur Business Club theme for March.

TOPIC: The Magic of Millennial’s~

Who are the Millennial’s and what can we learn from them?

Millennial’s are a mixed bag with plenty of differing opinions on what defines them.

What cannot be disputed however, is that the workplace has changed because of them – millennial’s are climbing career ladders quicker bringing with them 21st century ideas and causing us to rethink authority and accountability.

What’s more important is that they don’t just want a job, they want to make an impact on the world too. They are the promoters of fair trade, sustainable production methods, beauty without cruelty, online trading, wanting to make a difference by supporting smaller businesses, people they know and trust. They are questioning business practices and holding the older generations accountable.

Join us to discover who this person really is and how we can relate to them in our businesses and as our clients.

ABOUT OUR GUEST SPEAKER:
Debbie Jackson: Founder of About your Life Style & Balance Cape Town.
She is known for her practical, street-savvy style; her fusion of real-life stories and her fun, easy style and conversational techniques enable her to connect with her audience at an intimate, intense and individual level.
