It’s important that we as the players –  ALL SOUTH AFRICANS – show up for practice.

Talks powwrpoint (2)


Rob’s talk takes you inside the game plans of the Great Champions of Business & Sport –  taking you on an inspired journey from Good to Great to Greater. It shares in the firm belief that:

If you want to be the best- you must learn from the best 

Through business and sporting stories, Rob shares what the great champions know, yet coaches seldom teach.

It’s the stuff of Champions, the stuff that you cannot Google, the stuff you will not find on the Internet, and the stuff they do not teach you at Harvard!

It’s the stuff that sets great teams – and great individuals within those teams  – apart.

Every game has a winner. Every winner has a game plan.

Our Growing South Africans Great initiative (kindly sponsored by Cell C) kicked off in 2016 with a series of inspired talks to matriculants at South Africa’s top ranked rugby schools. We followed this up in 2017 with an online Development Programme designed for My Players – that’s the 984 professional rugby players in South Africa.

This year our focus turns to corporate teams via inspiring BREAKFAST TALKS – helping both teams and individuals within those teams – to unlock and unleash their greatest potential.
