"I am passionate about what I do and believe in what eLearning and technology can do for individuals and organisations alike. Having experienced what well designed and aligned learning can do for organisations is very rewarding, and I get a great deal of satisfaction in helping organisations develop the capability of their employees as well as developing individuals to reach their full potential. Having returned to South Africa I am very excited what can be achieved on the African continent through the use of eLearning and technology -- the African people are very keen to learn and very passionate about technology."
