About

Mike StopforthThanks for visiting my site. I’m the founder and CEO of Cerebra, a company that specialises in social media and social business consulting, education and implementation for corporate brands. In 2013 WPP acquired a majority stake in Cerebra.

I use this site to share ideas, projects and learnings, and also to hear from interesting people like you.

In 2014 I published #BrandSchizo – a business book designed to help brands navigate the opportunities and challenges of the social era of business. If you’re interested in finding out more about my talks and presentations this is the place. If you saw me speak and would like to leave a testimonial I’d appreciate your feedback.

When I’m not working, I’m golfing, drumming, fishing, running, cycling, swimming or spending time with family and friends.

What Clients Say...

Mike was a keynote speaker at our recently held Digital Ignition Symposium. Mike was given the unfortunate graveyard shift but due to the insightful, enthusiastic and passionate way in which Mike delivered his talk made it the most interactive and interesting session of conference. He is one of the most dynamic speakers I have seen in a long time.

I saw Mike speak at Acceleration's Digital Ignition Sympsoium.

Mike did an outstanding presentation to the Discovery team on social media and its powerful and pervasive impact on society today. He provided a framework for companies like ours to think about social media as well as some practical tips and tools. Mike’s conversational style and humour went down brilliantly!

I saw Mike speak at Discovery Digital Thought Leadership Conference.

Mike is one of the most convincing digital brains in the South African industry with a keen understanding of the impact and value that social media has in business and society. His measured, authentic and pragmatic view on the world comes to life when he speaks in a refreshing and inspiring way.
