Summary Profile

Motivational Speaker,Public Speaker ,Master of Ceremonies ,Team building facilitator and Broadcaster.

Hector was born in the North Western village of Madidi in North West Province to a dressmaker mother and upholsterer father. Drawn to debate and public speaking as a child, he honed his abilities by practicing diligently, with his parents and three siblings as his audience and test subjects. Conscious of the world around him and growing up in a time of political unrest, Hector was always eager to make a difference.

At 14 he convinced fellow students at Seamoge Middle School to unite in an effective strike action against corporal punishment – which he considered cruel and counterproductive. Now recognising the power words have to influence, he decided they’d be the tools he would use to make his mark.

Deeply family oriented, Hector loves to spend leisure time with his children. He also likes to travel, both locally and internationally. His favorite color, yellow, to him represents hope - optimism and sunshine - the dawn of a happy new day.

After leaving TUT where he studied Public manangement, Hector did a spell at the then Radio Bop, presenting Monday Madness, a show which saw presenters offering personal and professional advice to callers and listeners. Following this he joined the I Can Foundation as a public speaking intern.

Here, under tutelage and mentorship by renowned speaker David Molapo, he was trained to be one of the youngest motivational speakers in South Africa.

From here it was on to Kaya FM, where Hector hosted an inspirational Sunday morning show to raving reviews.

By 1999, an increased demand for motivational speaking engagements caused Hector to establish his company, Marang Consulting. Over time, team building facilitating and training were added to the com pany’s list of services. 10 years later, Marang Consulting became The Motivation Company - rebranded and renamed to more accurately reflect the vision and mission of Hector Motivator.

Energetic and engaging, Hector exudes a passion that elegantly complements his upbeat personality. Bright and warm, like his favourite colour yellow, he’s always seen himself as a bringer of light. A village boy with the gift of the gab and a passion for motivation, Hector decided early on that uplifting and inspiring others would be his chief personal and professional pursuits. 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 humour, 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. Hector’s lively and animated personality, added to his unique presentation style, have earned him a steady base of satisfied clients over the past 20 years. His signature approach to motivation first opens the heart with laughter and then fills the soul with inspiration.

Hector’s clear enthusiasm, keen insight and sharp sense of humour make every event he facilitates a memorable affair. By keeping his audiences alive through sheer dynamism, enthusiasm and wit, he has become a much sought-after event facilitator and Master of Ceremonies in Gauteng and beyond.

In addition to speaking and hosting, Hector also offers corporate team-building services. He has facilitated teambuilding retreats for major SA government departments and various companies and businesses all across South Africa. 

Hector is more than a motivational speaker, programme director and team builder. Like his hero Myles Munroe, Hector believes each individual (and organisation) is created with immense potential and a unique set of attributes designed for a specific purpose. Life, therefore is about maximizing potential for achieving our purpose and as a born communicator, Hector’s always understood the power words have to inspire and motivate action.

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 radio shows were a mix of entertainment and uplifting content and this experience marked the beginning of his motivational crusade.

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. A firm believer in accessibility and fostering a genuine connection with his listeners and audiences, Hector takes pride in being R.E.A.L - an acronym be developed to emphasise his focus on: Results, Entertainment, Authenticity, and Listening.

What others have to say about Hector Motau: Ayanda Noah - Managing Director (ESKOM Distribution) Hector has done wonderful work for me, and I would like him to do more!!! I took him with to my area visits during the year, where we visited 7 areas across the country. My interventions were to discuss performance issues with a group of employees, most of who were generally demotivated. The visits were during May-July 2008. Hector closed off all my sessions with a "Re" message which he called “Sending an SMS - Self Motivating Strategies". The way he designed it was around Eskom's 4 values (Customer Service, Integrity, Innovation and Excellence) and he delved into them using his personal experience and examples. He made these so clear to the employees, bringing humour in it - so he had all of us in stitches. After traveling with him 7 times, I still enjoyed his approach because each was different although the message was the same. He got the staff so engrossed, so energized and spirits lifted that I believe there was huge impact on them. He certainly had an impact on me. Ayesha Abdool – SAWEN (South African Women Entrepreneurial Network) Dear Hector I just want to let you know that I am so motivated by your speech. Most women have to earn a living as well as do all the household chores which includes taking care of children, washing, etc. At home no-one makes us feel special.
