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 specialise in helping companies that seek to increase their social impact and improve the lives of South Africans. Over the past 15 years, I have advised hundreds of NGOs, businesses and government projects, and helped many of them to improve their social impact and financial performance.

In order to promote social enterprises and the application of business thinking to social problems, I have given talks at seminars, conferences and business schools. I have also written articles which have been published in national newspapers.

I am the National Coordinator for the African Social Entrepreneurs Network, as well as a member of Business Sculptors (a team of senior business consultants and mentors). I also work closely with Citizen Surveys (a national social research company).

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.
