I help leaders to think clearly about the future.

I assist them to make sense of complexity and act decisively. I provide encouragement and hope when it is lacking. I offer new ways of seeing things.

My clients have said that I have helped them to design practical strategies, manage people and power dynamics, and also create efficient organizations where people are motivated and happy to be at work.

I help organizations that seek to increase their social impact and improve the lives of South Africans. Over the past 18 years, I have advised hundreds of NGOs, social enterprises, businesses and government projects, and helped many of them to improve their social impact and financial performance.

In order to promote social enterprise thinking, I have given talks at seminars, conferences and business schools, and been published in various magazines and newspapers.

In addition to my consulting work, I work under brands such as the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Social Enterprise Academy, Citizen Surveys and Imani Development. I also co-host the Talking Social Enterprise online show.

My educational background is sound. I have an Honours Degree in Business Science from the University of Cape Town, and a Masters Degree (summa cum laude) in Social Development from the University of the Western Cape.
