A cyber security (*eek I'm a geek*) conversation with a twist: Meet Frank...

Uncategorized Jun 28, 2020
 

... a man on a mission to use technical expertise to provide a first line of defence for the things we all care about. Frank wants to kill cyber security stereotypes (geeks, only middle-aged white men), AND if he could have his way, would kill all bullies too. In his words:   

"What toxic bosses do not understand, is that you judge a leader based on how they treat others.  Their poor treatment of workers is proof they are poor leaders.  I hate all bullies.  While I prefer to just pull out my sword ;-) ,  your book ROAR and a more strategic approach is needed in the workplace. It is awesome you wrote this book."

Two big topics we address are wellbeing in Cyber, and how we build a safer and  socially-responsible Cyber sector.

Find out why Black Lives Matter, meet Simeon Quarrie

your bullyproof life Jun 08, 2020
 

"What is really important, is that those who are in a position of privilege start to recognise that they are in a position of privilege and that they start to use that privilege to assist and help and support." Simeon Quarrie, Founder & CEO, VIVIDA 

It was a great honour chatting to Simeon yesterday about why #blacklivesmatter and what we can all do to start the conversation and take action.

In this interview Simeon elegantly shares his own story and struggles with racism. He goes so far to say that racism is bullying and shared some of his key insights and learnings from reading my book ROAR! How to Tame the Bully Inside and Out 

I won’t lie, I was nervous about this interview. Not a comfortable conversation, but necessary. As a white South African female who grew up in the Apartheid years - Nelson Mandela became our president when I was a teenager - I am all too aware that white privilege is real. And the guilt and shame that comes with it...

Today we talk about breathing .. meet Freediver Helena Bourdillon

your bullyproof life May 30, 2020

May is Mental Health Awareness month so I have lined up interviews with a few incredible guests over on my new Youtube Channel, Your Bullyproof Life.

Helena Bourdillon is a Freediver, Speaker and a Breath Trainer. I had the pleasure of talking to her this week all about breathing. As a freediver, she holds 7 national records for depth and has represented the UK at 4 x World Championships so far.

She speaks publicly about her survival and triumph over chronic depression which had her on the verge of suicide 20 years ago. As a Breath Trainer, she helps people to gain better health both physically and mentally through using healthy breathing habits (9 out of 10 of us are no longer breathing healthily as our bodies were designed to do). 

 Here is the link to my interview with Helena Bourdillon - see you there!

We can't be what we can't see. Celebrating Mom <3 <3 <3

Uncategorized Mar 08, 2020

*** Happy International Women's Day everyone ***

You can see four generations of women in this picture - my mom Karin (standing), my late Ouma Marie (right), my late Ouma Lettie (left) and me - blissfully unaware of the adventure ahead! 

Today I am celebrating all the unbelievably amazing women in my life; one in particular: my beautiful mom, Karin.  

Mom was 21 when I was born, but this didn't stop her from carving out a successful career - always working hard to support Dad financially. She did work shorter days - to prioritise being a wife and a mom - and used to jokingly say "what most women do between 8am - 5pm, I have to do between 5pm - 8pm"... :))

Mom and Dad started their Accounting & Tax business 20 years ago, and I often call her the CEO (mostly to wind Dad up) but I have to say, I honestly don't know what he would've done without her. I know Dad will be the first one to acknowledge this. 

The biggest life lessons Mom...
