“I think your ability to intuitively “get” our company personality without someone having to explain the subtle nuances of a family business turned corporate puts you in a class of your own.
Couple this with your passion for growing and developing people into the best that they can be makes you invaluable to us as employers.
You provide a platform for staff to practice what you are teaching them in a safe and “accepted” environment.
Encouraging people to step outside their comfort zones to find a hidden natural talent or create new comfort zones is your special talent.
Our staff have always commented on the fact that you also make yourself available to them for personal issues or challenges. This is very unique to you and they really appreciate being able to chat to you and gain your insights knowing that these discussions are confidential.
I know that the directors also have the utmost confidence in your ability to maintain a good balance between work related development and growth and the personal issues staff ask for assistance with.”

“Short note to say thank you for an incredible program you ran with our GEM LT at the end of Oct. It was one of the most enjoyable learning experiences we have had in a long time. The way the program was run and the really interactive sessions made the experience even better. The content of the program and how you embraced Growth Mindset, Executive Presence into Leadership really got the team thinking and wanting to stretch ourselves to become better leaders for our organisation and a better team.
Thank you again and we really look forward to the opportunity of working with you again in the near future”

“Just some feedback on the totally brilliant life skills and sales course we as a Company attended a few weeks ago. Already it had such a powerful impact on both my work and personal life as well as the work and personal life of my fellow employees. The webinar was very knowledgeable and is it therefore that I have been able to employ the skills and tips I learnt, with great results almost immediately. It is amazing how you were able to tailor the webinar over 2 half days to our individual needs, as there were 113 of us attending each day. The experience was a total success from start to finish.
I can see why you come so highly recommended! Thank you for the positive influence and I will recommend you to everyone in any organization for life, sales or individual growth training.
It’s been nothing but an absolute privilege to be coached and mentored by you over my 12 year career.”
Morné Griesel – Business manager Spine
“Grant did an amazing workshop on leadership and advocacy for our international delegates in Malta 2020. The way that he engages and interacts with the delegates are above the norm. He is an exceptional facilitator and knows how to engage with all personality types to enable them and the whole team to get the most out of the sessions. I could recommend any of his training modules and workshops to any company, person or organisation big or small.”

“Not only are you one of the most engaging strategist and speaker I have had the pleasure to work with, but your “drive” to help AND SEE others succeed is what makes you stand out to me personally. In this industry where ego seems to be the norm, not only do you willingly impart with your very valuable knowledge and intellectual capital but you offer your best self!
Your connection with audiences, even difficult ones at times is why you such a successful speaker. It is something that comes naturally and effortlessly to you.
Connecting to and with people is your greatest strength. Perhaps it is not a unique ability but when you do on so many levels in corporates, I think it is unique. In so doing, you also ignite hidden strengths in others they may not have realised before. The reason I say this is because in my personal capacity, I feared people (although I have worked in events industry for 25+ years!) and any form of speaking to groups yet, since meeting you and working with you, I found a confidence I never knew I had.
You have a great sense of creativity and a brilliant detailed eye when it comes to creating unique events which is one of the reasons I love working with you!
Your gratitude for what you have daily is what I believe distinguishes you amongst many and certainly something that you have taught me the deeper meaning within gratitude.
On a personal level, your dedication to family in particular your parents, is something I truly admire as it is rare.”

“Grant’s relaxed presentation style was very successful in captivating a diverse audience while still accomplishing the objective of ensuring the more serious message was absorbed. The session was well received by all staff. Grant’s key points mirrored the mandate which I asked him to meet and we would definitely consider working with him again.”
Chief Executive Officer
Grant is a captivating presenter with an interactive, humorous and engaging presentation style. I was particularly impressed with his confident, and fluid ability to handle witty quips from audience members and respond on the fly – his keynote address elicited great feedback from attendees, and a significant change in perspective and attitude from some previously cynical, and almost disengaged employees has been visible since the address. He delivered perfectly to the brief, with a great balance of content and media and I look forward to doing some further work to entrench this cultural change in the business with Grant.”
Group Marketing Manager
I would like to personally thank you for your presentation to the Discovery PAs. Judging from the comments of those who attended, your talk was very successful and one of the highlights of our summit. All the credit goes to you who gave such and interesting and thought provoking talk. What resonates with most of the PAs is that we all come into the world with a unique purpose for our lives. Finding that purpose and celebrating our uniqueness can often be quite challenging though!
We hope that you will want to be involved in our PA Summits in years to come. We were pleased to have your participation in this unique PA Summit, and we thank you for your valuable contribution.
Sharing is Caring!

SVP Global Technical Services
I was successful and subsequently appointed as Business Executive in the Eastern Cape Business Unit of Auditor General South Africa.
Thanks very much for all the coaching and guidance, keep on doing great work.
I would like to thank you for the amazing talk you gave today you honestly have made me more driven and have awoken something that has been dormant for a long time. I wish to be trained and possibly mentored by a great mind such as yours. I have shared your Facebook/LinkedIn and website link to all my colleagues and friends because I believe that you have a lot to share to the world and people need to know. thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you.
Let me start of by saying that by the time I met Grant I had applied numerous times for higher positions in the organisation, without success. I met Grant in 2007 as part of an initiative to prepare me for my interview for a position at the next level and to enhance the identification of my strength and weaknesses and to actively address these. His focus was heavily on self-awareness and he spend endless sessions with me to dig further and further into who Alice really was, what matters to her and what she has to offer her leaders, her peers and the rest of the organisation. These sessions also included the identification of personal values and to establish the value proposition for my own brand. Needless to say I was successful and was appointed as a Corporate Executive in March 2008, which I don’t believe would have been possible without Grant’s help.
Over the next few years Grant continue to support me in continuous self- development which specific focus on being an inspiring leader, up-skill my negotiation abilities with great results and also to focus on improving and fostering good relationships inside and outside the organisation. Good relationships became critical in the work that we do to influence a better live for all South Africans!
Having Grant as my coach always felt like a “safety-net” when I get tangled up in the day to day activities associated with my role in the organisation and more than once Grant was called on to bring some “sanity” back in the chaos that faces me in this leadership position. The value he brings can never be translated into monetary value and one of Grant’s strengths is his ability to have endless patience and continue to “push” for higher performance.
I can recommend Grant to any individual that needs to grow into a specific role of for a specific purpose or any organisation that wishes to enhance the skills of their leadership.

Ons was verlede week by jou opleiding saam met Landmark. Ek het vandag dat my personeel die Personality types doen en vanaand gaan ons dit bespreek.
Hulle is BAIE opgewonde en vir my was dit nogal ‘n ‘eyeopener’ om te sien wie in watter kategorie val….baie interressant en ek moet se van hulle is nogal in die regte posisie met die regte persoonlikheid.
Sal laatweet hoe hulervaring was.

Mr “Driver” was quite interesting indeed. I like his informal but authentic style of presentation. He made such a conservative topic very interesting.
Grant is a vibrant, inspirational speaker who captures his audience throughout his presentation. Each one in the audience could connect with him. He added value to our conference.
From the first day I listened to you, my life has never been the same again, I am now making my mark, not doing things for the sake of doing them, Now I make sure that everything I do is personalized. I would love to join you on your next workshop!
If you always do what you’ve done, you will always get what you’ve got. Keep on keeping on! Thank you so much, I have never been this confident in my life!”
The value of having everybody get the complete picture, and trusting each person with it,” Grant Driver will develop your customer service to expertise and value through his Professional and Business speaking at your conference.
