Today, close to two decades later, he remains resolute about his business. His customized motivation and teambuilding seminars are boldly imaginative and insightful and his love of performance, combined with a generous use of humor, make Hector Motivator sessions a pleasant blend of motivation, education and entertainment. Hector has a core belief that a life with no motivation is one of stagnation. In addition, to create the lives we imagine, we must constantly be willing to discover and explore creative ways of staying motivated enough to pursue our goals. His aim is to equip South Africans with the tools, insights and information needed to inspire and motivate themselves – and to stay committed in pursuing their purpose.

After discovering he had an affinity for radio broadcasting, Hector decided it would be his mission to inspire and uplift others with his passions. His careers in motivation and radio began in Varsity, when his love for the medium led to him teaming up with a group of students to establish the first campus radio station.

Hector’s messages are designed to cut across creed, culture and other social barriers, and to appeal to South Africans regardless of race, age, gender or economic status.
