About the senior executive partner:

A master planner, strategist, motivational speaker and coach, Naadir Hodgson, who is also a qualified Lifeline counsellor, has a Diploma in Organisation and Work Study from the Pretoria Technicon, a BA degree with Politics and International Politics from UNISA and an M Phil (Business Ethics) degree from Stellenbosch.

He is a high EQ, high energy problem solver of note and an excellent trainer and communicator who is very comfortable in all environments and at all levels of work life. He thrives on pressure and particularly enjoys motivating others to make positive changes in their lives. He absolutely lives by the motto:

“Where there is life, there is hope!”

He has spent the past 20 years in a corporate retail HR environment with a large South African retailer as a specialist and generalist covering all HR portfolios and he has built a reputation for being someone of high integrity, always delivering a suitable solution on time and being an excellent and always present business partner at all times.

This is what Wendy Ackerman, the guardian of HR practises and policies at Pick ‘n Pay since the company’s inception has to say about Naadir:

"I have known Naadir Hodgson for a great many years and during his time as Human Resource Manager of Pick n Pay I found his wisdom and understanding of the H R problems extremely helpful. I also found him sincere, compassionate and understanding in his dealing with the multitude of problems which our staff generated. I can highly recommend him to anyone requiring his services as his insight and wisdom are invaluable."

About the services offered:

The company can offer any HR service, but focuses mainly on recruitment, training, events and educational HR interventions

Human resources recruitment


The company has access to over 40 years of recruitment experience and specialises in retail recruitment, especially in respect of scarce retail skills such as Blockmen, Bakers and Retail Managers, but can also recruit for any position required with no job being too big or too small.

Motivational training and human development


With one of the best trainers in the country at its disposal the company can design and train any made-to-fit program, any other program preferred by the client and/or the client’s own in-house training programs. The company is steeped in customer service and human inter relational training, but specialises especially in human development of the psyche by means of carefully planned motivational training events tailored around the particular needs and environment of the client.

Events and entertainment functions


The company can turn an event such as a Christmas party into a learning event by adding goal orientated content and entertainment within which the celebration can be wrapped. In this way the employees get a party they will never forget, but the employer can be rest assured that some key, central messages are conveyed without it feeling like a training session at all. The company also has access to an extensive network of suppliers and can plan and co-ordinate any other event to suit the customers’ specific needs.

Education and counceling


The company believes that parenting, leadership, training and education are integrally linked and cannot be separated from one another. It is thus a strong advocate for improved education for all, from especially preschool level right up to tertiary level. Against this background the company is prepared to offer free career guidance, ethics and motivational talks to schools and community organisations.
