South Africa

Short Description

Based upon Dr Dean Allen, best-selling book, Empire, War and Cricket, this fully illustrated talk has entertained and inspired international audiences around the world.


It tells the story of James Logan, a young Scottish entrepreneur who made his name and fortune in South Africa during the late 1800s. An important figure culturally and politically, at the age of just 24 Logan created the famous Victorian town Matjiesfontein in the Karoo. He was also responsible for bringing international sport to South Africa.


The talk, which can be shaped to meet the needs of the clients, teaches us important lessons from history, in terms of business, entrepreneurship and overcoming barriers to achieving one’s goals. It is a controversial yet thought-provoking story of opportunism and destiny from which many lessons and comparisons can be made today.
