Douglas Kruger wows City of Roses at business breakfast event

Widely celebrated South African author of six business books, international speaker and five times winner of the Southern African Public Speaking Championships, Douglas Kruger, delivered an inspirational and insightful presentation in Bloemfontein on what it takes to be an industry expert.

Speaking at the Business Breakfast with Douglas Kruger event on Wednesday morning at the Bloemfontein Rambler’s Club, Kruger presented compelling stories from well-known individuals and organisations who are known as brand leaders in their respective industries. Kruger outlined the similarities between names like popular chef Nigella Lawson, Virgin Active’s Richard Branson and skateboarder Tony Hawk among many others and explained why and how these names stand out more in their industries than their counterparts do.

He further explained the value that companies and individuals stand to benefit from just by positioning themselves as experts. This provided many benefits, which ranged from the income experts have as well as how different their sales and marketing strategies are from those who are yet to position themselves as experts.
He also gave ten points on how to go from being an amateur to an expert through his humorous, well researched and informative presentation.
