Recommendations“While my time with Tim was a mere two days of inter-personal/personality diagnostic andinterpretation training, I learned a lot. I can attest to his professionalism and efficiency, as well asthe usefulness of his vast knowledge when it comes to interpreting his client and giving them thecorrect and necessary information/criticism without breaking them down. His work with me hashad a marked impression on my business life.” Wikus Kriel – Trinesoft Technologies. May 18, 2012“Tim and I have worked together on a number of occasions. Two large projects stand out inparticular. Both involved the transference of (life) skills and knowledge to large groups ofparticipants seeking to make themselves more attractive to potential employers. Tim showed anincredible ability to build strong and trusting working relationships with these participants. Suchwas his insight into their specific needs and concerns that he was able (more effectively than therest of us) to engage with them at a level that best ensured that the new knowledge would stickand that the new skills would be successfully applied. He is an extremely conscientious andtalented facilitator who sets high performance standards for himself and others.” Steve Woods, TheAchievement Network. April 30, 2012“Tim was my Lecturer in a leadership course I did at Bytes Technology group, outsourced toPowerhouse. I found him to be well versed in the course material and was able to capture anaudience, making the training come to life. His story telling was a true inspiration (one of theaspects of the course). Tim was able to connect with each learner on a one to one basis, even whileaddressing the entire class. I would recommend him as a trainer any time.” MikeTruter, Coronation. May 22, 2012

Firstly in the field ofeducation, then, over the last ten years as a personalcoach and facilitator, I have accompanied many whohave been stuck in the “mundane,” showing them thatone can enhance one’s significance and standing bybuilding a personal, portable portfolio which isrecognized and read by everyone they meet: amessage of strength, competence and confidence.
