PRESENTATION CONTENT for Vusi Thembekwayo

Talk 1:
THE BLACK SHEEP

Thinking outside the box is out-dated, its time to do it outside the box. “Black Sheep” – an inspirational and fun-filled look at the most fascination young lives from Africa – is aimed at organizations & individuals that dare to think & act out-the-box.

What are Black Sheep?
Black sheep are individuals with daring ambition and a persistent will to succeed. These individuals are calculated risk-takers that look beyond circumstance to find opportunity. For them starting a business, a division or even expanding their horizons are activities best poised for recessionary times. They see opportunity & prosperity where others see contraction. They are daring when others “bearish”.

They are black sheep!

Vusi has travelled the globe researching this talk, meeting with some of the most influential young lives from Africa. He outlines the key pillars to success such as “time & concentration”, “4 o’clock theory” and the “fortune of misfortune”.

A hit on the international motivational speaking circuit, this talk is sure must have.



Talk 2:
BIG MAMA AND THE HORSE

Imagine a young boy growing up in a small dusty village of a no-name town in the tip of Africa. With perseverance and hard-work this young boy goes on to become a world champion public speaker. Big mama & the horse is an inspirational but funny look at the development of this young, the first air-flight experience, the first limo ride, and the first time in a London pub. This true story looks at the key principles of success: patience, passion & persistence, the "fortune of failure" and more importantly an abrassive belief in you.

Having delivered this talk in 4 of the 7 continents, Vusi has fine-tuned its message to entertain, enthuse and inspire your audience.

A hit with captains of commerce and statesmen alike, Big Mama is your sure bet at motivational success.



Talk 3:
... THE TAKE OVER!

What can executives running large multinational firms learn from simple corner shopkeepers? Frankly, some of the most exciting, new age & adaptive business strategies ever implemented. In the past 10 years the proverbial township shopkeeper has gone from being that old-man that everybody knew and respected whose family lived in and was a part of the community to a foreigner with whom none in the community members have a history.
Their business strategies have been shrewd, simple & clear. They have come to localise entire townships & dominate the local food trade. Consider that in the 1980’s the township market was seen the most risky market to operate in and their achievements are quite extraordinary.

Having spent over 5 years working as an executive in this sector and armed with tons of research, Vusi looks at why these foreigners have become such a formidable business force trading under the most horrid of conditions. He dispels popular myths about their financial savvy, business acumen and operational skills. Through videos, pictures and statistics you come to respect, revere & empathise with the foreign trader whose organisational skills are unequalled.

This is a mind-blowing presentation that is a perfect-fit for any that strategy sessions and must be heard by every executive team.



Talk 4:
BHAMPA IN THE BOARDROOM

Typically: where would you place the the teenage looking, baggy jeans wearing, ear-studs sporting candidate in your business?
The IT department where they never have to meet with clients?
What if they arrived at work with red all-star sneakers and a half-torn pair of jeans? Then maybe security wouldn’t even allow them on the premises.
Finally imagine that they’ve been in corporate for some years, have that all illusive MBA from a top-notch business school yet cant seem to stay in the same organisation for too long. Would you hire them?

If you’ve answered “NO” then Bhampa in the boardroom is for you.

In this talk we dispel the urban legends about hiring “today's generation” by giving advice, tools, methodologies and suggesting systems that can help you attract, acquire and grow younger people in your team.

  The Truth.....

Lets be honest: how many times have you heard speakers that talk about how “Eagle survive in the wild” or give analogies about “Lions hunt using group power”. You may have even heard speakers that call themselves “business generators” yet have never run one successful business. If you are looking a nature motivational speaker or someone that read books published for MBAs and simply regurgitates the contents, then Vusi is the NOT the man to pick.
However, if you want fresh, dynamic, thought-provoking and original content that has been well researched & tailored to suit your audience then motivational speaker Vusi Thembekwayo is your best bet at motivational success. Consider that his been kicked out varsity for failure to pay his fees (... And yes he went back to a business school and attained a qualification far above the undergraduate degree); started what is now a multi-million rand organisation by valuation from a R35 start-up capital and three short phone calls!... then you know that Vusi is about action and results.

His use of multimedia brings his presentations to life & keep his audiences captivated and enthralled. He is the only motivational speaker that had a international corporate finance client give him negative feedback for being “too funny; too informative & too entertaining”. In fact their exact feedback was “We thoroughly enjoyed your talk. Too much humour, too much information & an amazing multimedia presentation. What we’ve learned from you is that “In extraordinary times, it's your approach that matters.”
