I have been directly involved in meaningful motivation and training at all levels at the Mine Training Centres where I was employed. Once qualified, I rose very quickly through the ranks, initially to the position of Mine Captain and then fairly quickly on to senior level as a Mine Manager.

With regard to Public Speaking, I was an active participant in the Dale Carnegie International environment, advancing to Group Leader. In 1980 I established my own Bulk Chemicals business (Wilco Chemicals (Pty) Ltd), using unique, indeed original approaches to solving underground dust issues.
I have also qualified as a SETA Registered Assessor, which led to my being the Assessor for the marking of assignments for a country-wide Entrepreneurial Training Centre in South Africa.
Subsequently, in recent years, I specialised in privately tutoring individual performance skills, and developing individual career potential, using unconventional methods, including Shadowmatch, Professional Handwriting Analysis, and lecturing/running workshops at Executrain, the Local Chef School, Leeukop Prison and Servest Ltd. I am avidly interested in Rugby, Cricket & Soccer. I was an invited Guest on E-TV, Radio Today, 702 Talk Radio, and Kaya FM, on a variety of subjects.
General observations: Apart from using a range of "people insight" tools, including the well-known "DISC" approach, I have developed an innate ability to weigh up people, and thus recognise their latent, perhaps untapped potential. I have now attained the TEFL Qualification, which opens the door for me to teach English as a foreign language internationally. My long an relevant business experience can also be brought into play here, should the situation require that ability.
With the onset of Covid-19, I have now also enthusiastically embraced the idea of online Tutoring in Maths, addressed primarily at Grades levels 2-9, and using the excellent resources offered by the UK based "Open University." I am continually keeping up with the recent trends – business-wise….a useful addition.
Active Member of the International Scouting Movement……rising to Queen’s Scouts level, and attended the World Jamboree in England as a member of the South African contingent. After the Covid-19 epidemic has run its course, I will again be involved at committee level with the local Scout Groups.

Colin gave me medium-term career counselling a few years back. Colin opened my eyes to insights about myself which have supported me on my life journey. I am most grateful for the gentle positive nudges he continues to provide from a distance.
Colin is a patient and empathic teacher. He has a lot of experience and I recommend him without hesitation.
The only tutor who was able to pick up, that the reason I was having difficulty at school, was because I couldn't see. I didn't know I had eyesight problems till Colin picked it up! He was also able to improve my learning with different styles of study and education he improved my learning capability's and improved my life!
Nothing can match the real value of experience, rapidly aimed at recognising and developing YOUR specific needs. Now, YOU too can draw on Colin's abilities to enrich your knowledge and life with REAL Professional Results. Don't delay, you can only gain from the experience.
Colin is a well qualified and dedicated academic and as a life coach has been instrumental in helping us and a lot of other people by recommendation.
