After working with Herman, many leaders have rediscovered their passions for their own careers – passions they were convinced had been lost. Herman has been speaking publicly since 2005 and strategically shapes workshops and talks to transform organisations.

Through his work, Herman has gained local and national recognition. He is commissioned as the Lead Mentor of Birmingham, and his work has been recognised by the government, having been included in the white paper for social inclusion. In 2017, Herman was invited to be one of the first Leadership Fellows at St Georges House, Windsor Castle.

Herman is often requested to take his mentoring strategies overseas, including school leaders and government authorities in the UAE, including Dubai and Abi Dhabi.

Herman’s TEDx Talk from 2018, The Joy of Being Broken, shares his perspective of using challenging situations as learning opportunities, despite the sense of disappointment.

Herman has been voted Mentor of the Year – twice. First in 2020; two years later, he was named Mentor of the Year 2022 at the MBCC Awards.

That same year, Herman launched The Mentor’s Mentor Masterclass, as he strongly believes that “empowered people, empower people.” Herman mentors mentors to transform young people by first transforming themselves. On completion, mentors gain a CPD accreditation in mentoring.

Herman is host of his own podcast Finding Your Path, where he demonstrates to his global listeners that career paths are not always straightforward. It explores the mindset of leaders and how they found their paths in life. Interviewees include the likes of Harriet Green OBE, Ex CEO of IBM: Mike Harris, founder of First Direct and Egg Bank; Emmy Award Winner Chris Do, Creative Director; and Samuel Leeds, Property Investment Expert.
