ABOUT

Language — and connecting dots — is my trade.

Writing (Tap dancing with words)

Through my word-slinging sensibilities, I solve a vast array of written-word challenges.

Speaking \ Oratory (Ubuciko Bomlomo)

Greatness, here, is characterised by the delivery of words that connect (dots), teach and grow people. I place front-and-centre the importance of human connections and the learnings made possible by the curiosity to interrogate the stories we choose to make, tell (or consume) and believe.

I enjoy connecting dots and offering insight and strategy around varied forms of storytelling and the ways in which it all impacts and shapes our lives.

That’s the essence of what I do.

I’ve worked at Cerebra Communications, dropped in on an intensive digital media course sponsored by Google and endorsed by IAB South Africa called Digify. During that tenure, I learned about social media (for business), online media strategy, digital advertising, content creation, public speaking / presenting, pitching and relationship building. As part of the programme, I had the opportunity of delivering pitch presentations to Nando’s (via an agency called Publicis Machine) and Mercedes Benz (via Network BDDO).

After a stint of freelancing, I joined forces as a Writer and Content Strategist with a design / marketing agency called Kwambele Social Marketing, based in Sandton, Johannesburg. The experience there was like being thrown into a pack of wolves, expected to come back leading the pack. The upside was massive growth that resulted in discovering and now extensively using my prowess at strategy-making. (I talk about those experiences further on my Facebook and YouTube channels.)
