Growing up on the Cape Flats in Mitchell's Plain Brandon knows all about hardship but he overcame life's challenges and ultimately became the successful man he is today. 'As a young boy I would look up at the stars and dream about the life I wanted for myself, but I knew that dreaming was only one part of the journey,' remembers Brandon. I needed to map out my future and then systematically do the things that would make my dreams a reality. So many teenagers have no idea of where their lives are headed, and without the proper guidance and support, their dreams will never be realised.

Brandon’s high school talks focus on one’s attitude and their choices in everyday life. His message encompasses: accountability, personal responsibility, choices, character, acceptance, selflessness, and can be tailored to your theme with advance notice.

Brandon gets personal about his own life: his challenges with his sense of self-worth, failing at relationships, and ultimately how he overcame his challenges and obstacles to make him the man he is today.

Live In The Moment

All too often we focus on the past and allow those experiences to impact our lives with debilitating consequences. The future with all its hopes and dreams beckons us to want more, pushing us onward and stealing our focus. The present is where the past begins and where the future is created. That's where our focus should be: in the now.
