“I was born in Cape Town, South Africa and in my early twenties moved to London where I worked in the City for a number of global organisations including the likes of Dunn & Bradstreet & The Financial Times Group. I sold charting and analysis tools and data, and later technology to the world’s leading financial institutions. After about 10 years I joined the NASDAQ quoted firm TMP Worldwide as a retained executive search consultant, delivering Pan-European assignments at Partner and Director level in financial services and technology.
My first entrepreneurial venture came at the rise of the new economy when I founded Venture Partnership Ltd to focus on building the management teams and human capital of the dotcom era – for the Venture Capital market. The new-economy markets crashed and I closed the doors on this once vibrant niche consultancy. My next adventure took me to the Middle East where I set up the operations and was Managing Director MENA for the British members-only concierge, Quintessentially.
On returning to London in 2005, I found the world fascination with all things leadership, image, impact and personal brands deeply compelling and founded Mowbray by Design. In 2009 I founded PIPBA and in 2010 expanded my business to South Africa where I Co-Founded smartRevolution – Powered by Consciousness™. In 2012 I launched The Wild Card for the corporate market – the video tutorial originally commissioned by Durham Business School.”
