Colin heads up Happy Sandpit, a South African organisational culture consultancy, which helps organisations of all sizes to increase employee engagement, performance and loyalty. 

He is the author of How to Build a Happy Sandpit, a ground-breaking book based on research conducted with more than 60 South African businesses over several years, on how their cultures drive success. He has lectured at GIBS, Wits Business School, Regenesys Business School and Unisa and has worked with hundreds of South African businesses to understand and implement better engagement techniques. He will demonstrate that by changing the context of the work they do, your employees will deliver performance that will help you soar to success.

The message Colin conveys is such an important one and the more people who hear him, the better.“ - Peter Maher, Director: Alumni Relations, University of the Witwatersrand.

Colin conducts keynotes and workshops aimed at helping organisations to identify and overcome their particular challenges in the six key areas that define a more engaged organisation:

  • A willingness to extend TRUST
  • The de-emphasis of HIERARCHY
  • Respect for the TWO-WAY STREET
  • An obsession with VALUES
  • The ability to HIRE for culture fit.

Each is backed by case studies of African organisations who have excelled in these areas; what they did, why they did it, and how they went about it. Learn how you can create the same results and dramatically increase your employee engagement. Colin has provided services and conducted workshops on employee engagement, organisational culture buy-in and leadership team development at organisations including the American Chamber of Commerce, American Tower Corporation, AOS, BMW South Africa, Bank Gaborone (Botswana), Cavmont Bank (Zambia) CBS, City of Johannesburg, Comair, German Chamber of Commerce, Huge Telecom, Innovation Group, Intel, MBD Credit Solutions, Nashua, PMSA, SAMRO, McCarthy Toyota, Bank Windhoek (Namibia) and Zurich Insurance.
