082 527 1548

Anke Brand is a respected speaker, consultant, teacher and counsellor on the devastating effects of internet addiction. Anke speaks to parents, leaders, schools, teachers and young people country wide on the important issues of the dangers of the digital world. Whether it’s gaming, pornography, cyberbullying, or depression, Anke helps you to understand how technology addiction is affecting our brains, thus having an influence on our grades, our concentration, behavior and emotional well-being. For Christians, we need to be alert to questions such as: “Are Christians using technology to transform the world or is technology transforming Christians in unhealthy ways?” As a reborn Christian, Anke understands the devastation to the human mind and spirit due to devotion to technology. This is a necessary teaching for our generation, to remind us that our phone / tablet / computer habits will either amplify or get in the way of our most important longing od all: the satisfying glory of our Savior.
