Arthur is currently the headmaster of a growing independent school in Worcester, in the Western Cape province of South Africa. His approach to primary education is progressive and is leading the school through an era of new development and change.
He is passionate about the use of technology and social media in schools. He believes that budget should not constrain teachers and schools in the development of teaching, leadership and marketing strategies. Through EdTechConf, a collaborative partnership, Arthur is actively engaged in bringing new ideas and strategies to schools in the field of educational technology and social media through speaking at seminars and workshops.
From 1998-2007 he served as the director of children’s ministries at Bryanston Methodist Church in Johannesburg leading the ministry from 80 children in attendance to over 800. It was during this time that he developed, in conjunction with the Willow Creek Association of Southern Africa, a network of professional children’s ministry leaders across South Africa. As part of this team he traveled regularly to Chicago in the United States for leadership development and training at the Willow Creek Community Church.
It was also during this time that Arthur traveled extensively around South Africa speaking in cities and small towns. He became a sought-after speaker for conferences, workshops and seminars on issues of children’s ministry, leadership development, change management and personal growth. This was both in the non-profit and commercial sectors. He was a track leader in the South African Christian Leadership Assembly gathering in 2003 in the field of Family and Children’s Ministry. It was also during this year that he was invited to address the Kids Treff conference in Zurich, Switzerland.
Prior to his move to Johannesburg, Arthur taught at Sun Valley Primary. It was here that his innovative approach to primary education began to be formed.
