Hykie Berg is an award-winning actor, speaker and entrepreneur currently seen on Kyknet’s daily drama, Binnelanders. He also won Survivor Maldives 2011, writing two best-seller books (Hykie Berg-My Storie van Hoop” and “Hykie Berg-The Ultimate Survivor). He also authored ADHD-Die Onsigbare Oorlog, which tells the story of his struggle with addiction, mental illness, and his process towards recovery. He was awarded the 2021 Andrew Murray / Desmond Tutu prize for Outstanding Literature. 

He is one of the most requested speakers in South Africa as he shares his message of hope, purpose, faith, and leadership. 

Hykie and his wife Gerridene are fiery entrepreneurs. Their heart and passion lie in empowering individuals interested in transforming their lives through faith, leadership, business principles 

and the desire to make a difference. They are also parents to their beautiful baby girl Lehmé.

He is the ambassador of TOM-The Ordinary Millionaire and Creative Kidz, an educational institution offering remedial support for children with learning barriers. He is proud to be serving as part of the preaching team at Centre Church in Olivedale, Johannesburg. 

“I love stories of people overcoming challenges and seemingly hopeless situations. It inspires me and gives me hope. But overcoming requires courage and determination; it demands radical surrender and sacrifice. Changing habits and behaviour can be challenging. Venturing out of our comfort zones takes a lot of work. But if I and millions of others could do it, you can too! I feel humbled knowing I play a small part in God’s ultimate plan for humanity. I can bring a little hope to those who need urgent change and who desire to make a remarkable difference in their own lives and the lives of others. 

Something better is waiting for you-something much better than you have ever known. It’s time to be courageous and rise! The world needs you to play your part. Be brave and take the first step. You can live fearlessly forward if you choose it.” 

You don’t build a business, a school or an organisation. You make people, and then people build the company, school or organisation. 

MamaMagic, I look forward to sharing with you and exploring different aspects of parenting over the next few weeks.
