Leading with Courage
Braam believes that you first have to believe in yourself and be comfortable in your own skin to be able to stand out from the crowd and be open to criticism. Only once you trust yourself and have faith in your own integrity, others will too. True leaders stand up in the face of adversity and do the right thing. Respect is not given, but earned.
Leaders have a special ability to display a sincere passion that ignites those in their company to buy into the goal or vision and want to be part of the journey. They empower others to want to go places that they never previously imagined possible. A leader with purpose fuels others to action through change. They inspire others to want to reach their fullest potential, to become leaders themselves.

How not to build an internship program

As ClickMaven, we don’t do jobs. We do mastery and purpose.

We've created an internship program that equips digitally savvy graduates with the skills they need in order to make their mark in the industry.Using a highly structured 6-month internship we equip them with technical and business acumen skills. 

We aim to inspire and assist other agencies to develop programs/opportunities where they can bridge the skills gap.

My life sucks; how do I keep motivated?
Being an entrepreneur can be daunting at times: you spend your days getting rejected only to come back for more. As an employee you're often at the mercy of a boss or other difficult situations. In this session we'll talk about how to keep yourself motivated regardless of the circumstances.
