About Us

With Us It Is Always Business Unusual

How It All Started

Combining and Interconnecting the Unusual

The seedling of a business idea which at the time was without a name or a plan was conceived three decades ago when Ryan Swano simultaneously had a few different small businesses while studying and holding down a permanent job, and while he was also dabbling in the entertainment industry.
When in 2008 he was no longer permanently employed by a company, Ryan started doing freelance work and business consulting aimed at Small Businesses and aimed at the Arts & Entertainment Industry while also providing entertainment services.
This paved the way for what eventually became Fifth Element Live (PTY) Ltd being formally registered in 2018.

Business Unusual

It’s All Connected & Interconnected

Though separate and distinct, the different spheres of our business are designed to overlap and easily interconnect. This all makes a lot of sense when the synergy between them becomes apparent and our Business Services Clients end up using our Entertainement Services or when our Artists & Entertainers partner with our Business Services Clients on their Corporate Social Investment Initiatives which end up sponsoring an NPO or Organisation that we work with.
For us it is the workings of that Cosmic String, The Fifth Element, that ties us all together..
That is the Aether, along with our Knowledge of Self manifesting with Fifth Element Live.
