RUAN LABUSCHAGNE
Trainer

These years spent behind the camera have given Ruan a rather particular view of the world. In his 2 decades of hands-on experience, he has done impressive things outside our walls – broadcast and mainstream TV shows, entertainment journalism, brand and marketing activation (phew) – as well as within them. He has coached CEOs, encouraged interviewees, conceptualized and captured large-scale productions, coordinated on-stage and online events – and the accretion of these varied experiences and points of view have informed his perspective.

As he has informed those he’s worked with. It’s fair to say that Ruan’s quirky brilliance makes his production work so good, while he makes the people he works with better, and he always gives more than he gets.

No matter the workload, no matter the complexity, Ruan’s positivity is harder to scratch than titanium, and this rings through in any project he’s involved in. They’re just… better. When COVID hit, his hands were integral in helping the team to rebuild our online CloudCrew offering, allowing the business to thrive.

The more you get to know him, the more he’ll impress you and challenge you, and the more you’ll love him. Professionally-styled 30cm mohawk and all.
