Raised in Mpumalanga, South Africa, Vernon was introduced to the wonders of nature at a very early age. After graduating with B Com LLB Degree and Higher Tax Diploma and Company Law Diplomas, he decided to pursue a career in business – a decision that proved to be highly successful. In later years he and a few colleagues built their own financial planning business which was later sold to a large corporate. After serving a restraint period, Vernon was headhunted in 2001 by one of the largest banks to start up their Private Bank, now a highly successful part of the groups Retail Bank.

Vernon was later appointed as head of the bank’s Wealth Division. After remaining in this position for a period of time, the urge for Vernon to take up a new and exciting challenge was too great – resulting in him devising and developing a presentation, which enables him to assist others in the corporate environment to reach their own levels of true success when working as a team. A new presentation has subsequently been devised which focuses more on personal/family lives.

Is renowned for his inspiring presentations on how we can use some of the more powerful lessons found in nature and how to apply these learning’s to the business or family arena as well as working more effectively as a team.

His vibrant presentation openly confirms that we need to adapt the way we operate as a team today in order to survive tomorrow.

Vernon’s presentations are ideally suited for employees from all levels within small entrepreneurial organisations all the way up to large corporates, as well as for any person wanting to improve his or her personal interactions. The presentation encompasses some of the following issues.

You can’t fly solo - Know when to back off - Specialist vs. Generalist - The weakest link - Succession Planning - Communication - Competition - Trust.

Both dynamic and inspiring, Vernon is a presenter with paramount appeal. His ability to combine various business and family principles with hard lessons we can learn from nature, whilst still delivering this message with dynamism and humour, makes a presentation from Vernon Cresswell truly unique.
