“Walk out the door of a big company, what are you – stripped of that all-powerful identity?
You’re free. You’re brave.
And potentially you’re rich,
if you take full advantage of the opportunities that lie in store. Soloing is not about changing jobs – it is about changing your life”
(Soloing. Reaching Life’s Everest)

The name “OORSPRONG” is an Afrikaans word meaning “origin”. It reflects the idea that our journeys are original – they originate from a unique context – and continue to be influenced by this original context. The Afrikaans word can also be associated with the opportunity to re-start (“begin oor”) or to cross a boundary or blockage (“spring oor”) on our journey. In its variety of meanings and associations, the word reflects what my work is about; returning to the original journey and taking it forward.
