About the author: Gavin Sharples

Gavin is and has been the most consistently busy motivational speaker in South Africa since 1996 In a world of fake claims and unashamed, unsubstantiated marketing promises, Gavin has the verifiable facts of this claim that no other speaker has challenged. He is a professional, highly sought after and experienced corporate motivational and keynote speaker working with small, medium and multinational businesses, both locally and internationally in meetings, corporate events and functions. He delivers ideas and strategies in a no-nonsense, cut to the chase, fun manner. He is one of the only humorist's on continental Africa and one of only a dozen or so around the world. A humorist is a person who delivers a very serious message in a fun and engaging way. Gavin speaks on matters that relate to the individual and how the individual can and does affect the success of a company. He speaks on Change, Action and Truth. He is a massive disciple of Action and that the actions we take or do not take will determine our success or our failure.

In a world where lying has become second nature we need to disrupt our industry by telling the truth, by finding out truth and by being truthful to our customers.

His entire life work has its foundation in the cornerstones of Love, Light and Laughter.

About the book

the REAL MANual: A MANual on how to be a Real Man

Gavin Sharples MANual

If there were more Real Men in the world, it wouldn't be in such a mess and less evil crap would happen!

Have you noticed the number of disillusioned and disappointed women, the high divorce rates, delinquency in children, broken homes, single (women) parent families ? Almost all crime on our planet, especially violet crimes, are committed by males. Men seem to be systematically stuffing up in the world because there are so few REAL Men role models for young men and boys. It seems that the world is running low on Real Men.


The MANual defines and interrogates the actions, feelings, steps, beliefs, and habits that Real Men live by. It is a MANual on how to be, identify or raise a Real Man. This MANual is designed to help me and boys, but it is especially for women, mom's and young ladies; in order for them to get a truer picture of what a Real Man is before choosing one as a life partner or their children's father.

If you want to learn how to be a Real Man: a man of honour, trust, integrity, courage, kindness, strength and fun; a man that other men want to be like and women want to be with, then the MANual is your "How-To" guide.
