“After hearing Jan talk at the Change Your World Conference I was moved to contact him. As we sat in the theatre, a room full of strangers, he made it feel as though we were a hundred and fifty friends meeting up for a chat. His made us laugh, cry and think, leaving an impression long after I had returned home to my normal life and routine. A week later and his talk still resonates and inspires, together we can make a difference. Thank you Jan for reminding me of that, and making me want to start that change.” – Annette George, Author and Blogger.

Testimonial #2

“Jan is a truly open, honest and inspiring speaker whose passion really resonates. It’s not often you see a man of such physical stature speak with so much heart. His messaging around creating a significant life rather than a successful one really spoke to me.” – Laura Willis, Founder, Shine Offline

Testimonial #3

Being part of the Value-based workshop done by Ki Leadership Institute with my organisation recently has propelled me further and given me a new outlook towards life and making a difference in an organisation. I am also grateful to have been the person who applied my new coaching skills on a colleague the very next day and got the desired effect. I wish more organizations would use the value based leadership as it engages employees on personal reflections, implementation of goals and eventually changes the organisation positively as a whole. Thank you Arthie and Jan, I am not the same anymore. – Nothando Dlamini, Manager, Mbabane Municipality Council
