Erna Basson Live On Stage



From Colleagues, Coaching Clients, CEOs, Audiences, Media.


I Spent 2 weeks with Erna whilst doing a business handover; I was left with such a positive feeling, Erna has so much energy and passion for sharing her business knowledge and insights. Her drive to excel and prove that success is the only option is contagious!


Petra-Ann Palframan - Port Elizabeth, South Africa


I had a full day one on one coaching session with Erna and it was so inspirational, she shared so much knowledge, insight, and experience.  She had great vision and ideas for my business and I cannot wait to start implementing them.  It was definitely worth the investment


Elmari Opperman - Cape Town, South Africa


Her stage presence and the sincere honest warm person draw me to her. Not only is she a well-rounded speaker but an excellent coach that listens to her clients' needs and make you feel like the most important person on earth. Her vibrant energy rubs off and I can highly recommend her.  Even coaches need a business coach like Erna


Coach Karl - Cape Town, South Africa


Most entrepreneurs struggle to build a business that won’t fail. Few build one good enough that someone wants to buy it. Erna has built and sold multiple businesses in rapid succession.


Disregard or dismiss her at your own peril…


Jason Gilbert - Global Business Coach, USA


Erna's positive and anything-is-possible attitude together with practical advice makes you take your business to the next level. She coached me to look at my business from a different angle and implement a new approach with clients
