unlocking leadership passion
Ever since I was a young boy, I have been driven by two major passions: to build business excellence through the development of people and to fly helicopters. The latter being dreamlike for a young boy, growing up in Brooklyn, Cape Town, South Africa.
My entrepreneurial spirit and business drive first emerged when, at the age of 15, I started refurbishing second-hand vehicles and selling them at a marginal profit. At age 17 I wrote my first business plan and caught a train from Brooklyn to Cape Town CBD to promote my idea to the Small Business Development Corporation.
