For the past decade, Stef has helped us improve our results through our people. Without his help, it is unlikely that we would have managed to sustain our high levels of excellence on all fronts,

Stimulating … cannot but capture people’s imagination and assist them to achieve their full potential.

Unforgettable – definitely established a firm foundation for the new Sanlam Properties.

There is no doubt that our UGRs programme dramatically improved both our safety and operational performance. UGRs is a sure formula for success because the process engages employees at all levels. I have no doubt that UGRs can significantly boost the culture across any company.

Gareth Taylor

Vice PresidentBarrick Africa

An excellent session. Our vision for further development has been rekindled.

Dr Bing Henderson

Voted ‘best speaker’ at our annual Sales Convention 2008. As a result we asked him back in 2009 – something we never do – to handle a half-day mass-facilitation session for almost 300 managers. It was undoubtedly the highlight of our convention.

George Steyn

Stef kept the audience riveted for 5 hours – quite a feat! Sufficient coverage of the topic without clutter and unnecessary detail… extremely well balanced.

Deon van As

One of the world’s leading practitioners when it comes to teams and team leadership.

One of South Africa’s most influential motivators.

Stef’s program initiated a corporate “Road to Damascus” experience, creating the foundation for our future sustainable success.

Your involvement has laid the foundation for the total culture change which I’m experiencing in the company today.

Stef has had a strategic alliance with us for the last 3 years. During this time he has helped us to develop the potential of top and middle management. He has the ability to simplify the most difficult concepts so that they are understood and taken to heart by semi-literate people,

Stef stretched both management and unions to go beyond the boundaries…our attitude towards each other,

and the workforce, will never be the same again. I have never seen a facilitator like Stef du Plessis.

Stef played an integral role in the development of our people at all levels, without which it is unlikely that we would have managed to sustain our high levels of excellence on all fronts, during a particularly trying time in our industry.

After years of working with you, I didn’t think you could raise your game any higher… but somehow you did… again. This was by far the very best strategic session I have ever attended.

Gareth Taylor

Stef’s programmes have nation-building potential.

Thabo Mbeki

Stef is hands down the best speaker I have ever listened to in my entire life. If you don’t walk out of his presentation motivated to see and do things differently there is something wrong with you!

Johan Breed

One of the most incisive, visionary, transformational, yet humourous public speakers you’ll ever know.
