“Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny – he has something to fulfil, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed.  You are not here accidentally – you are here meaningfully.  There is a purpose behind you.  The whole intends to do something through you.” (OSHO – Creativity: Unleashing the forces within: 103)

How we do business is what really counts

Thermaspray isn’t just about coatings, it’s about substance

It may well be that the key to creating social change and correcting imbalances in the distribution of health, wealth and prosperity for all, is less a matter of changing what we do, but changing how we do it.  Instead of thinking we need to change the way we do business all at once – which can tend to overwhelm us – it is often a matter of changing one small thing at a time, and so doing what we can; incrementally.  The Read more...

CV tips to make you shine

Your CV is a bit like a herald you send on ahead to spread the word, a signal you transmit to inform others about what value you have to offer.  It has to make a comprehensive case for you in your absence, it has to be cogent and cut to the quick because you are not there in person to validate or justify anything it contains.  Your CV must speak for you, on your behalf, by speaking for itself; in other words it must be a legitimate ambassador and avid promoter of your merit and worth.

ENEX – Recruitment Without Borders

Early this year I met with Ian Irvin, Honorary Life President of ENEX Executive Search, while he was in South Africa from the UK to visit his daughter in Hout Bay.  We spent a number of inspiring hours together in the coffee lounge of The Protea Hotel President in Bantry bay, during which time Ian sold me on the idea of ENEX and their vision into the future.  Warm and approachable, with a giving nature, Ian shared his journey in executive search in the UK with me, and painted a dynamic picture Read more...
