Adding Value & Giving Back

Adding Value & Giving Back

Around the age of 12, Tony Robbins was the first ‘Motivational Speaker’ I had come across. I remember sitting at home during my school holidays and passing my time watching daytime infomercials when the Tony Robbins ‘Personal Power’ series of motivational talks was plugged by Guthy-Renker (yeah – it’s ancient I know!). Don’t know what it was but I couldn’t stop listening to what he had to say. It’s maybe the fact he’s a master salesperson and an incredible speaker but nonetheless his content was valuable or what seemed to be valuable at the ripe age of 12.

13 years later I still find myself gaining valuable insights into what Tony preaches. I recently viewed a video entitled ‘Secret to Finding a Fulfilling Career’. At the core, Tony poses valuable and relevant questions for what are key markers for a successful life. Initially judging by the title I thought this is perfect for PepTalk… but the core concepts Tony talks about are universal.

“Work harder on yourself than you ever do on your job or your business” his idea of self-growth, giving back and adding value is an integral concept we explore in our PepTalk workshops with our participants.

Pep Talk 

PepTalk is a programme we have developed to address the “preparedness gap” for young people transitioning from tertiary study to the world of work.

It is a culmination of over 2-years of research and thinking into the ways in which this “gap” could be filled. We are taking a lean start-up approach to the development of Peptalk so it will continue to be a work in progress.

One of the things we have noticed across all or our corporate clients is they are all dealing with the same issue; graduates not having the requisite skills or capabilities to get up to speed in organizations quickly. What we hear from graduates is that they struggle to get their first “real” job due to their lack of work experience and/or skills.

We have set up a facebook page called Time for a PepTalk. This is about establishing a community of young people transitioning from study into work and intends to provide insightful tips, techniques and inspiration to assist graduates in securing that first job post-uni or establish their own start-up.

As we continue with our product and services prototyping and testing we are hoping to collaborate with universities, students associations, corporates and other interested. If you are interested in this programme you can visit our Pep Talk webpage
