A personal crusader on a mission to empower through the power of positive thinking, Brent has achieved global recognition for this forward thinking approach, and has inspired a nation.
Brent unwittingly started a social media revolution through his positive spin on #neknominations. The Random Acts of Kindness Nominations (raknominations) that he started through his simple YouTube gesture spread around the world, touching hundreds of thousands of people, and saving lives and spawned numerous similar initiatives including the recent ALS Ice-Bucket Challenge.
Recognised as one of the Mail and Guardian’s Top 200 Young South African’s as well as a Primedia LeadSA Hero, Brent is a modern day family man, proud South African, Passionate Entrepreneur, Determined Dreamer & a Primal Optimist whose story and vision is as inspiring as he is.
Many have the power to inspire. Many have the ability to use social media for good. Few are able to combine the two, whilst remaining true to themselves.
Brent is a young South African that, due to an undying belief in the power of positivity, and a fair amount of luck has succeeded in achieving great things, in a small amount of time. His decision, to turn a frivolous internet drinking game nomination, into a Random Act of Kindness, literally Changed Everything.
Brent Lindeque pioneered the #ChangeOneThing movement which went viral internationally Using the simple premise that YOU have the power to change everything.
His story is both inspiring, accessible and relevant.
In 2009 Brent left his safe, corporate, salaried position, to follow his dream to be an entrepreneur. Chaos Theory is a Brand Activation & Events agency that works with numerous Blue Chip South African corporates, and marketing agencies to deliver excellence in bringing brands to life in the real world. In a highly populated market-place, Brent has grown this business exponentially since start-up and today it continues to evolve and expand rapidly including a newly launched Social Media division, targeting small to medium businesses.
