Experience

I started my consulting practice in May 2000. Over the past 16 years I’ve worked on hundreds of projects designed to enhance social impact.

Prior to this, I worked and lived as a paramedic in the San Bushman Community in Schmidsdrift, served as financial manager for U Managing Conflict (UMAC), and was apprenticed to an international trainer in counseling skills. I also completed a Business Science Degree at University of Cape Town.

I’ve served a large range of clients. In some instances I worked under my own brand; ; in others I was part of the teams of organizations such as Citizen Surveys, Imani Development, Social Enterprise Academy, Business Sculptors and the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
