From Barefoot to Snakeskin Shoes
Billy shares principles which have transformed him from being very negative, lazy, and directionless; a victim mentality driven individual to a world renowned motivational speaker, author, businessman, Personal & Team Effectiveness Specialist.
He shares his story with passion, enthusiasm, humour and yet with high content and relevance to a variety of audiences. He has enthralled the youth to Executives from all around the world.
Be a Brand and Matter
There are all kinds of soft drinks, cars, watches and sneakers but those who matter most and have a ‘top of the mind awareness’ are Coca-Cola, BMW, Rolex and Nike.
The reason why they matter is because they are strong brands. Billy shares strategies of transforming oneself from just being one of the employees to being a powerful and distinct brand which captures ‘top of the mind awareness’ in your operational sphere whilst ensuring that you not only get opportunities but that these opportunities come to you – because you are a brand and that makes you matter.
Run it Your Way
As an indigenous Mosotho, a tribe from the mountain kingdom of Lesotho, Billy uses his natural savvy in the understanding of horses and he tells the story of a horse that no one believed could be a winner and its transformational journey to becoming one.
This story is used as an analogue to teach people about their inherent potential on how to discover, nurture and unleash the power within without competing with people around them. His core message is that this life is your race and you must run it your way, to be able to be, not just a winner, but to find fulfillment in whatever you have chosen to be or to do.
The Transcendental Leadership
Billy uses the story of the boy King Henry V as a lesson to how individuals can transcend from being at the perceived bottom of their game to a place where people around them begin to believe in their leadership ability. It also helps people to master the art of coming from behind and harnessing the power of leadership as a tool to achieving both personal and organisational goals.
Serve and Sell to Win
This presentation has a total bias towards sales people and their managers. It takes people from being a fly-by-night sales person to being one who understands the principles of being a servant sales person. This leads to people selling without a tight and cliché sales pitch but rather by understanding and serving their clients, who in return, give them the sale and a win-win is achieved.
Strand up and Deliver
This is an inspirational and business-focused keynote which uses The Phantom of the Opera as a backdrop.
Billy shares the power behind this phenomenon theatrical piece and he interweaves it with current business setups and how leaders and managers can harness International Congruence in the way in which they lead and manage. He shares current international trends based on his travels and international connections, how professionals are challenged by change and technology. He looks at business models and how they impact on business growth, team and leadership dynamics.
Awakening the Spirit of Tribal Consciousness
In this fresh, witty, exciting, passionate and application-driven keynote, Billy shares lessons long learned and applies in the times when Africa was at her prime; doing business with the Ming Dynasty from China.
He shares simple, yet profound principles which are Afro-centric in origination but have a modern business application in their orientation. He takes his audience through an amazing journey of discovering the real power and wisdom of Africa and the manner in which tribes were constituted, lead and thrived.
