About Me
Hi! I'm Lloyd Dicks, a proud Capetonian living the dream in the vibrant city of Cape Town, South Africa. I share my home with my lovely wife Sandra and our two amazing daughters. When I'm not busy with work, you'll find me out and about, soaking in the incredible natural beauty of our country. Whether it's a visit to a game farm to snap some wildlife photos or a fun day exploring coastal rock pools with my girls, I'm all about making the most of our beautiful surroundings.

Oh, and did I mention I'm a bit of a hobbyist distiller? Crafting my own spirits is a passion of mine, and there's nothing quite like sipping on my homemade Sour Mash Bourbon at the end of a long day. It's a little hobby that keeps me grounded and creative.

I earned my 4-year National Diploma from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, specializing in Sales and Marketing Management. I'm a chatty guy, fluent in English and I get by in Afrikaans. Plus, I've got some public speaking chops, thanks to my ATM and AL certificates from Toastmasters International.

My career journey started in the world of Information Technology. I spent time contracting for some big names in London and Cape Town, handling various IT Support roles. It was exciting work, but I felt a pull towards something a bit closer to home.

In 1999, I took the leap and joined the family business, Star Personnel Recruitment. Fast forward to today, and I'm the Managing Director (CEO), steering one of South Africa's longest-standing owner-managed recruitment firms. It's incredibly rewarding to lead a team of talented and dedicated recruitment consultants, helping them achieve their best and making a difference in the careers of countless individuals.

And if that wasn't enough, in August 2018, I was honored to be appointed as the Country Manager (Southern Africa) of Future Manager World. It's a role that keeps me on my toes and at the forefront of talent management and leadership development in the region.

So, that's a little snapshot of who I am – a family man, a nature enthusiast, a craft distiller, and a passionate leader in the world of recruitment and talent management. Life's an adventure, and I'm here for it, one day at a time!
