My mission is to work with organizations that wish to change the world, and to help them to find strategic clarity and encouragement.
I’m a management consultant with 26 years of experience in the social sector – over 21 years of which was spent providing strategic support to organizations that have a socio-economic and environmental impact – primarily social enterprises, charities, high-impact businesses and government departments.
My specialty is strategy design, facilitation of complex strategic and restructuring processes, mentoring social entrepreneurs and managing large-scale national research projects.
I have focused my career on the synergy between business strategy thinking and social impact. I advocated early for social enterprises in South Africa, and have written, spoken, and been interviewed frequently on this topic. I have also contributed to initiatives looking to develop a vibrant social entrepreneurial ecosystem within the country.
I have worked closely with organizations such as the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Social Enterprise Academy, Citizen Surveys and Imani Development.
My work has spanned the region, and I have been fortunate to work on projects in Angola, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, and consult to organizations that operate across East and Southern Africa. I’m currently based in Glasgow and able to work on projects across Africa and in the UK.
My educational background is sound. I have an Honours Degree in Business Science from the University of Cape Town, and a Masters Degree (cum laude) in Social Development from the University of the Western Cape.
