Hi and thank you for stopping by!
If you want to know a bit about me, why we should work together, and how I can help you, then you are in the right place.
I have been in the IT game since 1998. During my career, I have been involved in various aspects of the tech world in the USA, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.
From the real geeky stuff such as setting up complicated international WANS to the Marketing side such as Social Media Strategy.
Back in 1998, I contracted to a large Financial firm n the UK where I looked after 110 000 email users around the globe. That is when I saw an opportunity – Mobile Communication.
I relocated back to South Africa and started a company called SwiftSMS whose aim was to provide SMS solutions to businesses.
The company has flourished since its launch in June 2000, survived the Bubble Burst until I exited the business in 2019.
While the SMS communication was going on, in 2005, I recognized another gap in the market – there were (and still are) many companies who need an external independent opinion about their IT network, infrastructure, issues, and security. To address this, I founded Swift Consulting whose aim it was to provide IT consulting service to businesses.
In 2008, I began writing my blog, TheTechieGuy.com which has gone on to win several local and international awards. The blog started with answering common questions I was constantly asked. I figured that it was simpler to just email a link to the article and this way I could help people around the world and not just those who knew me.
It was at that stage that Brand started to reach out to me as I was able to engage with their products and services in a way they could not (this was way before we had the term “influencer.”). Since then I have been working with some of the biggest brands in the world, creating digital campaigns, consulting on strategy, and reporting from product launches around the globe. I have been fortunate to attend events in the US, China, Spain, England, the Netherlands to name but a few.
My YouTube channel was launched too and have over 8million views with over 60 000 subscribers at the time of writing this.
I love the community I have built, am fortunate and thankful to be able to work in Tech and Marketing world with incredible people.
I have a total fascination for systemizing challenges business owners face and deploying a solution that scales.
What can I do for YOU ?
Having been exposed to organizations, corporates, and business in numerous countries, my strength comes from offering practical consultation that translates into real-world results.
