Peter du Toit – Digital Future Work

Peter du Toit – Digital Future Work has always had a keen interest in technology and its impact on how business is done. Throughout his business career he has been an early adopter and as a result has been described by his peers as “being ahead of his time” and “visionary.” In early 2005 while running a wellness consulting business, which primarily helped companies understand the connection between wellness and productivity, he was approached by clients for advice on how to use social technologies to drive business objectives.

Out of this was born a consultancy called Social Media IQ which helped individuals and brands use modern communication technology to gain brand exposure and drive business objectives. The consultancy did work for, amongst others, The Kingdom of The Netherlands Embassy, Momentum, Canon and Unilever. Book through Conference Speakers

The consultancy’s last project was for The Success Academy, a property development and landlord company in Pretoria. After completing the project Peter was appointed Head of Sales & Marketing at the company. During his tenure at The Success Academy, he interacted first hand with thousands of businesses and in the process gained a keen understanding of the challenges faced doing business in South Africa, as well as a good view of how technology could be used to overcome these challenges. In March of this year Peter re-opened the doors of his consultancy, now rebranded as FutureWork IQ, which specialises in helping businesses prepare for the disruptive future of work and in so doing future-proofing their business.

Peter was enrolled in a public speaking school by his parents at the tender age of 6, and as a result of years of experience speaking to thousands of people, he has gained the ability to both inspire and convey a message in a powerful succinct way. He is a master public speaker who will leave you with a clear understanding of the topic at hand and enough inspiration to take action.
