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 27 years of experience in the third sector. I have spent over 23 years providing strategic support to organizations that have a social, economic and environmental impact – primarily social enterprises, charities, high-impact businesses and government departments. I have worked on over 180 projects, some spanning multiple years and containing a number of assignments.
My speciality is strategy design, facilitation of complex strategic and restructuring processes, and mentoring social entrepreneurs.
I have been a long-time advocate for social enterprises, and have written, spoken, and been interviewed frequently on this topic. I have also contributed to several initiatives to improve the social entrepreneurial ecosystem at a national level.
I am currently working closely with Community Enterprise, Cranfield Trust and Imani Development. Previously, I also worked with the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Citizen Surveys and Social Enterprise Academy.
I live in Paisley in Scotland after emigrating to the United Kingdom from South Africa. I have international experience and have visited other African countries and served clients based in Scotland, Northern Ireland, South Africa, Angola, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia. I have also consulted on regional and continent-wide projects in Africa.
My educational background is sound. I have an Honours Degree in Business Science from the University of Cape Town, and a Master’s Degree (cum laude) in Social Development from the University of the Western Cape.
