Ever since an injury to my soft palate at the age of 5 where doctors were convinced I would never speak properly if at all for the remainder of my life. I have been fascinated by communication in all its myriad forms.
I started studying what made people effective communicators and why some people were better at it than others, during this time I came across the technology of NLP, I was hooked. Yet the urge to perform remained. Soon I heard of the possible emergence of independent radio in this country. This was an opportunity not to be missed. I attended the Solid Gold Broadcasting Course and was soon working as a presenter on one of the first independent radio stations in the country. This led to bigger and better things as I moved on to presenting on 94.7 Highveld Stereo. At that time opportunity once again came calling and I left the bright lights of Johannesburg for the tranquility of the Mpumalanga Lowveld. Here I took over the running and management of Radio Safari. To date this is still seen as one of the most successful community radio stations this country has seen. At that time communication skills were at an all time low in the country in general. So I decided it was time to share my knowledge regarding communication and effective presentation skills. This led to doing work with the following companies Sun International, Tsogo Sun, Telkom Business, EXSA, GCIS, UPS, Pioneer Foods and Microsoft.
I was instrumental in putting together Mpumalanga’s first independent commercial radio station MPowerFM. At its inception, I was both the program manager and Afternoon Drive presenter.
I have subsequently relocated to Johannesburg where I currently run my own business called Watts Involved. We operate in the digital marketing and sales space. I continue to do freelance MC work, voice overs, corporate voices as well as various cutting edge communication based training courses. Various team building options are available on request including the martial arts discipline of board breaking.
