iLearn: Empowering people to empower others through learning

Richard Rayne always dreamed of starting his own business. As a child, he envisioned himself in a suit with briefcase in hand. Being surrounded by a family of entrepreneurs and teachers it was a natural step for him to enter into a career that encompasses both.

Rayne launched iLearn in 2001, at the age of 22 and as with any new venture, there were many obstacles that he had to overcome.

One such obstacle was gaining credibility amongst his corporate clientele.

His vision for his business was to be the most recognised and credible corporate learning solutions company in South Africa. He believes firmly that the key to success is to innovate, and constantly challenge the status quo.

You are the creator of your own reality.
