Brett grew up with a bat and a ball in his hand. He has worked at various schools and academies in both South Africa and the United Kingdom.
He is passionate about the contribution sport programmes have on holistic child development and has experienced first-hand the decline of gross motor skills in young learners. The sports programme he designed has a strong focus on specifically gross motor skills development as well as teaching learners about the fundamentals of teamwork and mutual respect. He has his own cricket academy based on the physiological side of the game to create awareness of what it means to be a sportsman. Brett obtained a Diploma in Exercise Science through HFPA. He also has various coaching badges to his name.
