With a credit card limit of just R50k and no tertiary education, Dillon started Kilowatt AV in June 2007. It was his first serious attempt at entrepreneurship, and although making many mistakes, Dillon has grown Kilowatt to be a significant player in its space with total sales revenue combined at over R270mil for the past five years. He is passionate about personal development, culture, strategy, mindfulness, and hyper-awareness, believing that these traits along with a servant leadership mindset, are essential for the modern day CEO. In 2012, Dillon became a member of the Global Entrepreneurs’ Organization, which now forms the fundamental foundation of his growth and personal development. Most successful of which has been his ability to completely step out of his business operationally and free up time to focus on new business opportunities, adventures, public speaking and mentoring young entrepreneurs. He is married with three daughters and loves adventure. Whether it is motor-racing or mountain biking, anything that gets the adrenaline going. Dillon has competed against a formula one racing legend in a reality TV series, cycled from London to Paris, rafted the mighty Zambezi river, completed a full Ironman triathlon and ran the London marathon, to name a few.
