One Hour Keynote Address

Invite Shakes to revitalise & energise your conference with his one hour “Success is a Choice” presentation which is based on the two day “Victim to Victor” intervention.

This presentation is highly engaging, interactive & alive with energy, and it will highlight some of the key principles from the two day program. During the captivating 60-minute, Shakes is engaging, entertaining & demonstrates the impact of the following concepts on people’s lives:

  • The power of mind-sets
  • Discovering & breaking limiting thought patterns
  • Dealing and coping with change
  • Internal vs. external locus of control
  • Maintaining positive attitudes
  • Creating empowering beliefs
  • Generating a vibrant energy field
  • Letting go of your past & redefining a compelling future

You will leave his talk feeling highly inspired & motivated, having challenged your own mind-set and your traditional thinking patterns & will be spurred into implementing these concepts in both your personal and professional life.

Topics Covered
  • Success is a Choice
  • Victim to Victor

Audiences will leave Shakes Dlutu talks feeling highly motivated, challenged and inspired to implement these concepts into your personal and professional life.

Perhaps what is most inspiring is Shakes’s dedication and love for his family. You will not find him in the office after two in the afternoon, because the time thereafter is devoted to his two children and his wife in the evenings.
