Spillly with 3 Ls
Brent Spilkin, affectionately called “Spillly with 3 Ls” has spent the last 20 odd years discovering what makes him happy besides architecture, driving ambulances, pickling mango achaar, distribution and redeveloping the inner city. He now gets his kicks from growing talented creative individuals in their businesses around the world by putting them through his Growing Pains Business Consultancy.
With an innate ability to develop relationships with strangers and his passion to communicate his opinions, Spillly developed a persona that has allowed him to flourish in the public speaking arena and also gave him the opportunity to host an online radio show, lecture business at reputable tertiary schools and work with international brands in the media space. He is a loud-mouthed, tech-adopting, motorcycle-riding business coach who won’t settle for mediocrity. He has an endless supply of hope when it comes to the resurrection of a beautiful, successful South Africa in which he wants to live and thrive.
Spillly has helped over 150 advertising, media, marketing, PR, digital, software, branding and content businesses and their owners develop, manage crisis, strategize and flourish and has clients throughout South Africa, Israel, The United Kingdom and The United States. His clients now generate over one billion Rands worth of annual sales revenue.
With a recent worldwide explosion in the independent professional and freelance market, Spillly has written a book entitled ‘What The Freelance – a Mini MBA for the Creative and Digital Freelancer’ and lectures on the content to small business owners and iPros alike.
