Forward thinking, brutally but helpfully honest, totally himself and refreshingly real – he hacks his way through, finding a way forward. Because, to Franco, staying still and getting comfortable means going backwards.
Franco Cronjé is constantly developing his own businesses by steering them through an ever-changing business landscape both within SA and internationally.
Just as much as he loves the process and the journey of business, he loves sharing what he knows. He offers guidance to other businesses to adapt quickly, not to merely survive, but to thrive. This he achieves by firstly sharing invaluable first-hand experience on here in his posts section, his social media channels and live events.
Secondly, him and his team are developing nomad.cloud – a platform providing tools and networking services, products and content for business owners to make the shift to the approach he calls Nomad Mode.

When he takes time off, he is, just as in business, on the move – indeed a nomad at heart. He loves exploring, seeing, learning and the most rewarding way for him to do this is travelling together with his family throughout Southern Africa’s remote areas to discover and appreciate the natural splendour of the region. He is a husband to a wonderful, gifted wife who plays an integral part in his businesses. They have two boys with whom he loves playing sport and embarking on adventures, playing an active role in their lives and to whom he hopes to pass on a well-won heritage and legacy through his work.
