Some kind words from great people...
“I believe Tom was indispensable to our Currie Cup campaign. He got the team thinking and communicating at a level we hadn’t been at before. As a team and as individuals we developed a lot from his sessions. He was also a great guy to have in the team environment.”
— Huw Jones,
Scotland Rugby International
“Tom was instrumental in the team’s collective confidence and bringing out not only the best in me, but also the team. A man that believes in being straight up and most of all, being honest.”
— Rob Du Preez,
Sharks Rugby Player
“Tom’s abilities in the sporting world translate perfectly to the corporate environment. His infectious curiosity around how to drive performance rubs off immediately on the people he works with or talks to.”
— Rowan Belchers,

“I have had the pleasure of working with Tom during the Ikey Tigers successful 2011 Varsity Cup campaign. I have been impressed by his passion, his intellect, his obvious thirst for knowledge and his search for new ideas. He is not someone who is comfortable with a fixed way of educating athletes. Instead he tries continuously to improve himself and his craft.”
— Professor Tim Noakes,

“Tom has brought something completely different: an objective way of thinking, what you can control and what to leave out the picture. The time spent with him has helped us build on something deeper, something that plays a bigger role in a sportsman’s world than most people realise.”
— Francois Louw,
Springboks & Bath Rugby Player
"I think the most important thing about Tom is that he knows how to win. His competitive nature is a great asset to his work. In the last 3 years I have been part of 3 different teams and have won 3 trophies – Tom was extremely involved in all 3 campaigns, working with the team as a whole and on a 1 on 1 basis with all the players. Working with Tom is always fun and enjoyable; he has an amazing gift of bringing a team together and creating a positive environment. I still to this day regularly work with Tom to strengthen and refine parts of my game. If I were a coach , Tom would be the first person I would hire."
— Nic Groom,
Stormers & WP Rugby Player
"Although a relatively new concept with regard to rugby, the mental side of the game cannot be ignored and having a person as forward thinking and unique as Tom on board is an absolute must. He is ahead of the game in his field and has a great feel for people and is able to connect on all levels. It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to work with Tom during this campaign."
— Kevin Musikanth,
UCT Ikey Tigers Varsity Cup Head Coach 2014
"Tom has an amazing ability to resonate with each individual by speaking and relating life with sport.
His knowledge of the psychological sphere is incomparable."
