Brand Pretorius

Under Brand Pretorius' leadership, Toyota SA grew from a small automotive player focused on light commercial vehicles with just 7% of the vehicle market to SA’s biggest in just 10 years. In 1999 he was offered the position of CEO at McCarthy Motor Holdings, but debts were out of control, the share price had disintegrated and the group was declared insolvent. Brand accepted the position and McCarthy returned to profit within 18 months. McCarthy became a part of Bidvest in 2004 in a deal worth R1bn and remains one of the key focus areas of the diversified giant.

His first book, "In the driving seat - lessons in leadership" was published in February 2013. It has achieved best seller status and has been reprinted four times. He is one of South Africa's foremost leadership coaches and public speakers on business success and leadership.

Brand's keynote topics include the following:

• The role the business sector can play to bring about a more prosperous South Africa.
• Guidelines for business success in a rapidly changing South Africa.
• The key lessons I have learnt during my career in business.
• Guidelines for effective leadership.
• Inspirational leadership – how to optimize passion, motivation and commitment.
• Servant leadership – is it effective in tough times?
• Key leadership lessons I have learnt.
• How to optimise customer satisfaction and retention.
• Guidelines for a successful sales and service organisation.
