Companion on your journey to productivity mastery


I’ve had the privilege of helping more than 13 000 people from 320+ companies in 12 countries to get their right things done easier, faster, and better.


They joined our Outlook Productivity course or participated in one of my Productivity Mastery programmes, with one-to-one coaching.


I am not a psychologist.  I don’t have certificates of coaching qualifications on my wall – my clients are my credentials..


I don’t call myself a “coach”, although the process of coaching is part of my repertoire.  


Our working relationship goes beyond just coaching.


I listen, inspire, encourage, support, guide, teach, share from my body of knowledge… I am your companion on your journey to productivity mastery.  And in the process we might just become good friends as a bonus.


My task is to understand what you want and walk next to you as we go there. 


I look forward to our informal first chat to see if there’s a good fit.







Let’s first be clear about where I can add value and make things better for you, and where not.

My specialty is to help you manage your workload and workflow more efficiently.

Workload: The amount of work you have to do in a period of time: The stuff that you have on your plate. Productivity suffers without proper workload management.  I can help you determine where your workload comes from and how to throttle the incoming stuff.

Workflow: The sequence of steps involved in moving from the beginning to the end of a working process. Emptying your plate. This is my expertise. I can definitely help you with this.

My job is to help you first say what you want, and then do what you have to do – to leave you better off than when I walked in.

People who are attracted to working with me typically want to improve their professional effectiveness and performance – their productivity.

I can write ten more pages that could take you twenty minutes to read.  Or we can meet online and take the twenty minutes to  talk about what you want, your current challenges, and what is required to get you there.

Our getting-to-know-each-other chat is my gift to you for showing your next signal or seriousness – booking the time for us to talk.

Participants In My Productivity Mastery Programme Have Said…

You can have similar results.

Moosa Karodia, PrEng Ceng
Production Manager at SAPREF(Durban) Refinery

“Productivity Mastery is designed to entrench a new habit, a new and improved way of working, organizing, thinking and feeling. I have personally benefited immensely in that a new productivity mindset has been created. I now feel much less anxious and much more relaxed.

I would recommend  Productivity Mastery to anyone who wants to take back control of their lives, both business and personal.”

Jan Mocke
The Joburg Market

“I would like to thank you at this stage while we are still busy with the Productivity Mastery Programme. [Even] if we would stop at this stage, I would already feel that is probably the best value for money I received from any course that I have done – and I have done quite a few.

Some of the articles you share are really enlightening and all I regret is that I was not exposed to this information earlier in my life.”

Bradley Hlubi
Operations Director: B&H Safety Consultants

“The programme is really tailored around people with busy schedules that need help. It really got me to rethink my levels of productivity and effectiveness. Started to expose me to other people and gain some tips on how to be more efficient.

A key learning for me is that you cannot trust yourself to remember everything – instead build a system and then use your trusted system to manage your workflow. Key personal management techniques were also taught..”

Peet van Jaarsveld
Group CFO, Digicall Solutions

I have formed and adapted and implemented quite a few new habits that are already paying off handsomely. My previous ways of handling emails and requests were not sustainable and has led to a lot of frustration. I now have a system that serves me much better.

Another major benefit of the programme is insight into oneself and understanding some issues better. And secondly insight into principles that highly successful people use. I think this offers a major opportunity for learning and growth.”

Henk Agenbach
CEO, Humansdorpse Koöperasie

“The programme helped me to understand that my problem with productivity is not unique but a general problem in the current high speed and quantity of information environment we operate in.

It also helped me to manage my time so as to focus on the most value adding aspects of my life not only as a CEO but also personally”

Your name next?

Why is this a free consultation?

You may get so much value from our conversation that you won’t need any further support.  Nothing wrong with that. My gift to you for showing that you are serious about improving your condition. (I had to look it up 😄:”Condition: the circumstances or factors affecting the way in which people live or work, especially with regard to their well-being.)

On the other hand, you may want to continue working together until you have achieved your goal. 

We can meet just once, or we design a package that will best suit your needs. No long-term commitment required up front, unless you prefer that. 

The first consultation is a good opportunity to see if there is a fit between you, me and the process.

Just one more thing. Please do not book time if you are not serious about this.

And let’s be honest with one another.  If I feel that it’s not going to work, I will tell you.  And you will tell me if you feel that way.


Outcome of our conversation

You will leave with:

  • Clarity about what it will be like, look like and feel like when you get what you want in terms of your personal and professional productivity.
  • Understanding your current driving forces to move you closer to how you would like things to be – to close the gap.
  • Knowing what is preventing you right now from already being there.
  • Actions to take right away that will help you trigger your journey.
  • Inspiration and excitement that you can create a positive change in your everyday life and achieve productivity mastery.

Will it be worth your while to be more effective and close the gap between how you want things to be and how things are now?
