Eksteen de Waal

The Laughing Boeta

I’ve always been passionate about people. Finding Compassion in our daily lives is not a luxury, but a core part of who we are. Living, working and flourishing through compassion is my passion.


Helping others to discover how to connect, find meaning and together performs feats that seem superhuman is what I live for.

And yes, Boeta is not a spelling mistake. Boeta is the Afrikaans colloquial word for brother. Like a brother, I love the people I work with and encourage them to be the best they can be.
