About Me
Over the past twenty years I have gained extensive senior management experience in the accounting/finance, commodity trading and software/web/mobile industry, both locally and internationally.

My contribution to an organization comprises leveraging a combination of business development, team leadership, strategic planning and sales expertise to meet and exceed expectations. I analyze core operational/business functions and implement the most appropriate solutions to drive continual business growth.

I am a strong motivational leader with solid management, leadership and communication skills and a proven record of growing offices worldwide. I understand the real educational development needs of my clients, both from an academic as well as a practical business point of view. I am able to formulate solutions for clients that enhance performance and directly contribute to their bottom line.

In my personal business ventures, I have always integrated ICT as a core component of their success. I'm a Tech enthusiast, with multi competences.
