Who, is Andrew?
My aim when I work with anyone, is to help them understand how to get the most from their mind, to help them understand how their values influence their actions and to guide them to create a Success Habit Set, which will support their dreams.
I am one of the most informative and entertaining inspirational and motivational speakers around. You can trust me to deliver a relevant motivational or inspirational message that works, every time. I am a straight shooting, grounded and deeply curious master teacher that will inspire your team to deliver their best, every day. My credible message will leave all attendees with a practical set of tools and techniques, which they can immediately begin to utilize and apply in their lives and careers.
My No. 1 goal when I speak, as one of South Africa’s top inspirational and motivational speakers and activity and time management training experts, is to ignite magic in each person, connect with them so that I can help them renew a vision or inspire them to find a lost belief or birth a new one. My aim is to guide everyone at my talks, to create a spark or inspire them to take action so that they can achieve what they desire!
I am an Entrepreneur, Master Teacher, Motivational speaker, Radio and TV Host, Global Traveler, human behaviour architect, time management expert and Author. My area of focus is in the field of time management and human behaviour, expanded awareness and enlightenment. I travel the planet constantly researching, learning and seeking ways to unlock the mysteries of the human mind. I delve into the inner workings of the universe, always looking for ways to understand my role in making things better and contributing to the improvement of the human experience.
I live an authentic and privileged life filled with love and gratitude. My mission and vision has been to gather, learn and apply as much wisdom and knowledge in my own life as possible. To this end I have been a voracious student, in the field of human behavior and human development. I specialize in guiding people to optimize their available time and energy and I help them explore the limits of their potential. My aim is to teach people how to convert their available time and energy into long term sustainable success. The tools and techniques that I offer my clients have all been tested in the laboratory of my own businesses and personal life. These very clients have also become testament to the efficacy of my methods as they have moved their personal lives and their businesses onto a new plane of success. My aim when I work with anyone is to help them understand how to get the most from their mind, to help them understand how their values influence them and to guide them to create a Success Habit Set that will support their dreams.
I have been a voracious student for the past twenty years, in the field of human development and specialise in guiding people to optimise their available time, their energy and activity management routines. My aim is to teach them how to convert this into profit and long term sustainable success. The tools and techniques that I offer my clients have all been tested in the laboratory of my own businesses and personal life and in those of my numerous coaching clients. My aim when I work with anyone is to help them to develop a Success Habit Set, over time that promotes sustainable and Effortless Success.
One of my favourite quotes and one I live by is:
“We are what we repeatedly do, excellence is not an act it is a habit.” Aristotle
I believe in making a difference in the lives of everyone I come into contact with and aspire to be an eternal optimist. I look at a world, where I see that everyone around me is conspiring to do me good. My greatest wish in life is to enrich the lives of everyone that comes into contact with me and at worst leave them no worse off after meeting me.
I am a straight shooting, grounded and deeply curious teacher that offers a simple, no nonsense approach to uncovering and utilising the hidden potential that lies dormant within all of us. This is accomplished by filtering, synthesizing and converting the best personal development ideas into simple, actionable change tools that are easy to apply and implement, thereby allowing for sustainable success. I work with people that want to drop limiting rules and restrictions in the pursuit of excellence and want to live an AGILE and thriving life.
AGILE means, ENGAGEMENT, mastery and success, in all areas of life.
Drawing on over 25 years of personal business ownership, 20 years of in-depth study of human potential and three years of coaching experience, I offer my clients a set of practical, time tested, simple tools and techniques that work. I bring laser focus into their lives and guide them on what will work and what won’t.
I host a weekly radio show every Monday evening between 7 and 8 pm on 93-8 fm. This show is aimed at inspired individuals and business professionals between the ages of 25 and 65. The focus of the show is around personal development, business and success coaching and entrepreneurialism.
Dr. John De Martini is a regular guest on our show. He has in fact requested to appear on the show on a regular basis and has asked for recordings of each show that he has appeared in, so that he can post them on his website. We have also interviewed Elizabeth Whiter and Sonia Choquette, both are New York Times best selling authors, to name but a few. Both of them were impressed by the quality of the show and expressed their approval for the professionalism shown and the excellent way the show is run. Janice Barry, (Managing Director Hayhouse South Africa) has recorded a video testimonial describing the feedback she received from both Sonia and Elizabeth.

I am regularly asked to speak at expos, seminars and corporate conferences, on topics such as success, productivity, time, energy and activity management and inspiration. I focus my talks around simplifying and demystifying topics like productivity, efficiency and effectiveness. My aim when I speak is to guide my clients to optimise the use of their available time and show them how to turn it into productivity, profit and long term sustainable success. I always leave them with ideas, concepts and tools that they can take away and begin applying in their lives to improve their efficiency and effectiveness.
I am a Professional member of the Professional Speakers Association of South Africa and have been a member for the past 3 years.

I was invited to speak in Dallas Texas last October. This was a really successful two week tour, where I spoke at numerous venues in and around Dallas and Dallas Fort Worth. Please see testimonials below from that visit.

I still own and operate my engineering and manufacturing businesses. These are both very successful businesses. I manufacture a commodity product, namely vices, where I compete and have competed very successfully against cheap Chinese imports for the past nine years. This despite the fact that I pay 13 Months wages for 11 months work and other productivity killing factors, like 12 public holidays a year etc.
I have become an expert at improving productivity and getting the maximum out of limited resources. This has stood me in good stead for building my professional speaking vocation.
I started his career with my first Business venture, a gymnasium, over 25 years ago. Since then I have owned and operated a number of very successful businesses in a wide variety of industries.
Prior to the democratic elections in South Africa, he saw that tourism had the potential to be a huge growth industry and as such I started a transfer business in 1993. The timing was perfect and this business quickly expanded to include a regional tour operation.
There is a clear synergy that exists between the tourism industry and conferencing and to explore and benefit from this opportunity I started a Conference centre in 1995. By blending these two businesses together and offering a venue geared toward meeting this specific need, the conference centre very quickly grew into a very sought after Conference and meeting venue.
As a natural progression I ventured into the dive industry and bought a dive facility in 2001 to further extend my business offering to the tourism market and to grow hmy business and product offering.
I was looking for a new challenge and in 2002 I bought a manufacturing business in the tool sector and soon expanded this to include a general engineering company as well.
I have bought a number of businesses that were struggling to survive due to poor management systems. And utilising tried and tested sound management principles and my time tested Activity Management Model, I was able to turn these businesses around and sell them for a profit.
I have spent the past 20 years finding ways to accelerate the successes of my various business ventures and have through trial and error and in-depth study of human development, found the best methods for realizing all my goals and dreams.
I began sharing my ideas and simple yet extremely effective concepts with friends and colleagues and after enjoying incredible levels of success with these people, progressed into providing success coaching to individuals on a commercial basis. Sharing all these insights, I have gleaned over the years, with my clients, offers me a way to live my True Life Purpose and to enrich the lives of many people.
