Billy Selekane approach is very applicable to what we do, over the past years, we have implemented techniques and it has helped us create a variety of business models that activated how we do business at the epoch. The combination of personal effectiveness, motivation and inspiration, his personal experience, in depth technical and business knowledge and a collaborative working style was exactly what we need during fast changing situations in emerging markets.

I was with Billy Selekane for a three month Business Coaching programme 2005 that made me effective and I persist to inspire others.We have also used his book “From Bear foot to Snake Skin shoes” it’s a book that has lifetime scenarios on how he progressed in his business lifestyle.

I believe there comes at least one moment in a person’s lifetime which if recognised and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. You have been that moment in my life. My inner turmoil until now has been directionless, unfocussed and unproductive. You have taught me to listen to the inner voice that had initially started its message in a whisper and has recently starting shouting a deafening cry into my dreams.

Billy, I have always known that there is a light within me. A faint spark that at times ignites into a flame of desire. This flame, grows and diminishes as I will it and as I allow myself to stray off my path and stray away from my inner joy. I have known great joy and I can still feel it. Drawing it towards me, using the inner magnetic power of my Will Power, I can make it happen. There is a light within me. It has been threatened by a force wishing to extinguish my inner flame. But still, there is a light within me.

I have worked with Billy Selekane over a few years. He is a professional, potent, powerful presenter, expert keynote speaker, coach and mentor. He is a positive product of focus, commitment and action with a strong foundation of integrity, character and reliability.

He is a man of great faith in every sense of the word. HE IS the undisputed best speaker in Africa. Billy holds global recognition of CSP. Very few speakers carry this accreditation and recognition..

Billy is the REAL DEAL. Exceptional man

They can understand briefs and design a program that are world class in nature and practical in application. I have had an opportunity of working with local and international consulting firms in various projects and Intelligent Edge Consulting plays at a very high level.

Billy Selekane’s understanding of Leadership and Organizational Culture and his ability to bring clarity on these subjects is refreshing. They are an inspirational organization and yet very practical in their approach.

It is truly refreshing and encouraging to have a local organization which such depth and passion for what they are doing. I have no doubt that as they have been honoured with many accolades from around the world that not only are they inspirational to South Africans, they also inspire those in the diaspora and make people understand the power of possibility.

I have no doubt that whatever projects you endeavour to involve them in that they will deliver with distinction and leave a mark across your organization. They will not only deliver within the time frames you set with them, they will also create a skills transfer process which is a rare thing in the consulting arena.

I am confident that they will deliver on your assignment and that your will be able to create a long term and mutually beneficial relationship with them.

As the head of HR for a national company we interact with a lot of companies from SMME’s to Fortune 500 companies from all over the world. Amongst these we have had an honour of working with Intelligent Edge Consulting (PTY) LTD under the Leadership of Billy Selekane. He has had an opportunity to engage with our Leaders in our business.

We found that his insights into Leadership is quite vast and deep. He really understands the challenges faced by Leaders and has a way of articulating very powerful strategies in very simple and yet profound ways. He is an exceptional Speaker and leadership proponent bar none.

Each time we have an opportunity to work with him, not only do we get fresh insights he speaks from a place of authority having walked the path of Leadership himself and still on the journey.

We find that the global knowledge and case studies he brings to his interaction very practical and easy to understand. He has an ability to connect at the highest level and inspire a different way of looking at Leadership issues.

We recommend him and his organization Intelligent Edge Consulting, he is indeed not only a talking head but a Leadership and Culture Strategist who continues to impact organizations locally and globally and we believe your organization can only be richer on working with him and his team.

Mpho Kau

– Acting Managing Director, Johannesburg Roads Agency –

This is a testimony for the work done by Intelligent Edge Consulting (PTY) Ltd under the Leadership of Billy Selekane. We engaged with them when we had a Leadership challenge and we wanted a company which not only had expertise to facilitate a Leadership Immersion session but who had a deep understanding of Leadership and the context of the South African government and political milieu.

We found that their methodology was not only world class, it was inspirational, engaging, humorous, open and easy to understand and embrace. They understood our brief and went a step further through their research to understand where as a Leadership collective the challenges we were facing.

As a black owned and Lead organization with a global footprint it was an honour and a privilege to work with them. It confirmed that as South Africans can operate at the highest level. We therefore should not only look up to the Big 4 of Mckinsey, Deloitts, PWC and EY for professional service but have confidence in the likes of Intelligent Edge Consulting that has the potential to grow and be a big player soon.

We believe that South Africa should buy and support South African business as long as they have the capacity to deliver and we have no doubt that whatever assignment that you want them to undertake for you they will deliver it with distinction.
