About Me

 My academic knowledge in Business Administration & Management, coupled with my professional experience thus far has allowed me to gain invaluable knowledge in building successful, long-term and fruitful relationships, ensuring constant and sustained benefits for my clients & customers, across their value-chain.

 Being a multifaceted professional in various dimensions of Consulting, has imparted in me an enterprise-wide ability to analyse and improve business performance for the long term. To further elaborate, I am able to define and understand the future state that the organisational strategy aims to achieve. Based on the strategic outcomes, I am able to define the business logic, architecture and processes, required to achieve the future state. In addition, appreciating that architecture and technology are enablers, people are ultimately the element that drive the strategy. My approach is people centric, to ensure that business buy-in and adoption starts from day one.
