We could not have hoped for a more authentic and inspirational speaker at our conference.” - Iain Hooper , Managing Director Edward Snell & Co. Ltd
"Dear Braam, I'd just like to thank you personally for what you are doing in our world. I've been photographing conference speakers for years and I have heard some of SA's and the world's best speakers at many conferences. None of them has had an impact on me quite like the talk you delivered for Edward Snell & Co last week." - Dallas Dahms, Photographer
“I have seen Braam speak twice in Johannesburg, South Africa and was extremely impressed with his performance. I have heard many speakers and can confidently rate Braam amongst the best I have heard. He not only delivers a heart-felt message but challenges his audiences to move from complacency towards their innate fuller potential. It was because of this that we invited Braam to address a large corporate conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The audience was really moved and impressed as was evidenced by the standing ovation Braam received. I can say with absolute confidence that anyone considering using Braam as their keynote speaker will be suitably impressed.” - Steve Morris, Managing Partner The Eventful Group
