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 maximising 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.
Hector was born in 1972 in the North Western village of Madidi, 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 Varsity, Hector did a spell at 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.
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 company’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.
