Keynoting at Tiger Brands Leadership Conference

Thanks for visiting my site. If we’ve never met, 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 – 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...

I have had the distinct privilege of sharing a stage with Mike on many occasions. What sets Mike apart is his ability to package content so perfectly that not only do you enjoy listening to him, but you remember what he said months later. He is smart, funny, handsome, likes long walks on the beach... I saw Mike speak at Multiple.

I organised TEDxPretoria on 27 September 2013 where I invited Mike to be a speaker and share his 'Idea worth spreading'. Although he also had another event on the same day he showed up early, enthused ready for action. Mike not only has amazing talent as a presenter, he is also knowledgeable and passionate. I would definitely recommend him. I saw Mike speak at TEDxPretoria.
Linda Swart Organiser, TEDxPretoria
Mike's keen interest in understanding our market, combined with his enthusiasm for his areas of expertise, made for an engaging, entertaining and highly relevant presentation. His energy was positively infectious and his talk received huge compliments from our audience. Mike was an asset to our event and an absolute pleasure to work with. I saw Mike speak at Property Keystone - Own Tomorrow.
