The programme consists of four modules, presented in four, 1-hour sessions. You can decide to do this either as a 1-hour session on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or over 2 weeks (eg every Tuesday and Thursday)

Delivery is a blend of self-paced and Instructor-led sessions. Each module consists of pre-recorded material which attendees need to work through before attending the live 1-hour session for that Module. The reason we have done this is so that the hour we are together live can be spent on answering questions and exploring aha’s the pre-recorded material has created. It also gives attendees the opportunity to come to each live session 100% prepared.



Instructor Bio PETER DU TOIT

Peter has always had a keen interest in technology and its impact on how business is done.

Throughout his business career he has been an early adopter and as a result he’s described by his peers as “being ahead of his time” and “visionary.” In early 2005 he founded a consultancy, Social Media IQ, which helped individuals and brands use modern communication technology to gain brand exposure and drive business objectives. The consultancy did work for, amongst others, The Kingdom of The Netherlands Embassy, Momentum, Canon and Unilever. In early 2016 Social Media IQ was rebranded as FutureWork IQ which specialises in helping businesses prepare for the disruptive future of work and in so doing, future proof their businesses.

Peter was enrolled in a speaking school by his parents at the tender age of 6 and as a result of years of experience speaking to thousands of people, he has gained the ability to both inspire and convey a message in a powerful succinct way. He is a master public speaker who will leave you with a clear understanding of the topic at hand and enough inspiration to take action.
