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 third sector – over 22 years of which were spent providing strategic support to organizations that have a social, economic and environmental impact – primarily social enterprises, charities, high-impact businesses and government departments.
My speciality is strategy design, facilitation of complex strategic and restructuring processes, and mentoring social entrepreneurs.
I have focused my career on the synergy between business strategy thinking and social impact. 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 initiatives looking to develop vibrant social entrepreneurial ecosystems.
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. In addition to projects in my new home country, I have worked on projects in Angola, Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania. I have also consulted for projects that concern the East and Southern African regions.
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.
