I deliver inspirational speeches on various topics to many different audiences in the strata of Professional Groups, Matriculates, University Students, Corporations and Conferences and Special Events such as year-end functions, graduation functions, Human Rights Day, etc.


Did you forget who you were before the world told you who you should be?

You are not what happened to you neither what people think, or say, or believe about you – you are who your inner being prompts who you are – the choice is entirely up to you!

Many people are unconsciously stuck in the “boxes” of old and familiar subjective behavior patterns and belief, cultural, dogmatic, or traditional belief-systems, which often result in the loss or lack of self-identity, or lack as well as in the complete absence of meaning, or purpose of life, self-esteem, and in low energy levels.

Do you perhaps feel “boxed-in,” or that you lost your grip on LIFE, or that of your own life, or maybe, that you lost track of your dreams? Do you feel distracted or despondent due to conflicting results with regards to your pure and honest intentions – that your reality just do not match up to the visions you had for your life?

If you desire to discover who you really are – to REVITALIZE YOUR LIFE to BE FULLY YOU and to live a more meaningful and purposeful life – as individual, in your relationships, your marriage, parenting and the work place, this seminar is for you.

It teaches you to uncover and identify yourself and how to free yourself from the “boxes” preventing you to BE FULLY YOU.

Please forward you e-mail address and where you reside to me at life and I will keep you posted about the venues near you and dates where you can attend.

It does not matter what life throws at you personally or in business, but how you respond to it. Also, to accept full responsibility for the causes and consequences of your lifestyle and lastly that, however traumatic your ordeal might have been, it does not determine who you are, it reveals who you are.

My keynote talks are mainly about inspiration and personal development. I teach audiences how to utilize the phenomenal power of the mind to evolve, to be fully who they ought to be on a personal level and collectively as a family, or colleagues and in business.

However, what excites me most, is to deliver my next talk to your conference, either at the beginning of the conference to ignite the inspiration and enthusiasm for the conference or at the end as the closing speaker by merging the theme of your conference with my experiences to leave the attendees with a memorable inspiration.

I regard a briefing and consultation session (prior to a presentation), together with a client and CPO or EO as key and proportional to the efficiency and successful outcome of an event.

What the audience has to say:

I got to meet Kobus several years ago, at a conference in the Drakensburg, since then our
relationship has grown into one of mutual respect and deep affection. Kobus is an amazing
man with an incredible story to tell. He has really dived into his subject matter and quite
literally walks his talk. He is a walking miracle and has the knack of translating complex
thoughts into easily understandable bite sized chunks. He is a shining example of the power
of the human mind, I would wholeheartedly recommend that you attend one of his retreats or
consider booking him as a speaker or coach.

We all have a story.  Like movie genres, our stories fall into categories.  I believe mine, like Dr. du Toit’s fall in the horror genre.  When severe trauma befalls us, we have certain choices: let it happen to us or through us.  Through many Kübler-Ross grief cycles, I finally chose to let the trauma happen through me. I could move away from it.  But when you are placed in a family group, different parts of the family deals with trauma differently.

I used to believe that the most important part of our shaping knowledge was only formed when we’re young; that we learn, build and grow the foundations and as we grow we merely add to our skill sets; that once our foundation was built that it can never be changed/improved. Experiences shape who we choose to be, our pasts reflect on us, and our futures await us.
