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.

Get in touch with me here.

What Clients Say...

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.

Mike is irritatingly good at public speaking. Irritating because he has an uncanny ability to read the audience and pitch the content and tone at exactly the right level. Irritating because he delivers profound insights in a common-sense manner, and because his wry sense of humour makes each presentation more like a chat with a mate than a lecture.

I saw Mike speak at IMC Conference, Johannesburg 2013.

Mike’s participation at Tribe Thursday made the event! If you’re looking for a razor-sharp intellect who is not shy to mix it up and really get people thinking then Mike’s the man! Unconventional, outspoken, lateral, and thoroughly entertaining Mike’s speaker debate at Tribe Thursday ensured we had the jagged edge to keep people talking!
