Bound. Real People. Real Rope. Real Photography

@ VOL 21 ON MAR 25, 2019

Gerry Pelser is a de-facto house-husband living in Johannesburg. He has one wife, two dogs, three bedrooms and a mortgage. When he is not busy looking after dogs or folding the sheets, he takes photos and writes books. He has a lighter side though: he likes to dabble in the art and psychology of BDSM, especially Japanese rope bondage, which is what his talk is about tonight. He is obsessed with photographic lighting and chicken wings, and if you buy him a beer, he will tell you anything you want to know.

Ki Akido: The Way Of Harmony

@ VOL 21 ON MAR 25, 2019

Jan Robberts has had over 30 years of experience managing people in more than 10 countries, which gives him a clear insight to how people feel or treat each other in their personal and business environment. There is a tremendous need to focus on our youth and support their growth as bullying, low self-esteem, and uncertainty about an ever faster changing world is causing unprecedented numbers of youth suicide, stress, and the need for anti-depressant medicines and treatment. Jan always says: "It is better to prepare them than to repair them". He is personally mentored by two leading experts in the world; John Maxwell and Les Brown and through that development is able to add value to people's lives as a leadership coach, mentor, speaker, and values based leadership specialist. He has been part of teams to support the start of transformation in Guatemala and Paraguay where they trained 19,000 Facilitators and this summer both he and Arthie were in Ireland to support a similar start up with smaller numbers. His core focus is continuous development by studying the latest innovative and international practices in Leadership, Coaching, Speaking and youth development.
