Judy Bekker spent ten years working as a journalist in South Africa, before entering the consulting and faciltation arena in the early 1980’s. Her work ranges from corporate programmes to the more spiritual, personal development processes.
Leadership development, communication and conflict resolution work, diversity and visioning have been her four main areas of endeavour.
Judy is inspired by the willingness of so many South Africans, to understand the past, heal and mend, and to negotiate and navigate our present and our future with courage. She is completely committed to the African Renaissance.
In her teaching and facilitation career, she has worked with a large number of companies and institutiions from banks and hotels, to universities and colleges, oil companies, churches and publishers, mostly in Southern Africa, but also in Australia, England and Egypt.
She has a deep love of wild places and in 1993, after training in the USA at The School of Lost Borders, she introduced the 11-day Vision Quest process in South Africa and together with her partner, Valerie Morris, facilitates up to five of these every year.
She has travelled widely for both work and recreation, and her lifescope includes building (Valerie and Judy created and built by hand, a "cob" house in the Grootwinterhoek mountains) writing, singing, reading, learning, parenting, mentoring and laughing! She is mother to two daughters and lives alongside the Indian Ocean in Cape Town.
