Brent Lindeque is a game changer
Proudly South African, Brent is more commonly known as the Good Things Guy.
In 2015, he turned a reckless challenge into a random act of kindness. Fast forward a few years and today his Good Things Guy platform www.goodthingsguy.com reaches over four million people every month sharing good news stories about South Africa and ordinary South Africans.
Brent Lindeque says that after launching the website with the idea to share good news has changed his life completely. “What I didn’t know at the time is how much this little concept would change my entire life in the process. It would help me find my purpose and give me the best job title in the world.”
Brent over the years, has proven the misconception that good news doesn’t sell – an average social media post reaches over 500 000 people with close on 400 000 loyal followers across the Good Things Guys Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube platforms on a daily basis. The site’s top five stories are also displayed on various outdoor and indoor digital screens across South Africa.
With a 76% South African and 24% global readership across all ages, it’s clear that we all want more good news.
With several local and international awards and recognition under his belt, including the Mail and Guardian’s Top 200 Young South Africans and being named a Primedia LeadSA Hero, Brent is a modern-day family man, proudly gay South African, passionate entrepreneur, determined dreamer and a primal optimist whose story and vision is as inspiring as he is.
