“I was born in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to London in my early twenties where I worked in the City for a number of listed 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 founded Mowbray by Design to focus on Coaching, Consulting, Professional Speaking and Corporate Development through the development of people, our greatest asset.

In 2009 I founded PIPBA and in 2010 expanded my business to South Africa where I Co-Founded smartRevolution – Powered by Consciousness™.

On a personal note, I paint and have sold a few, which still surprises me :-) I love Latin dance, travel, reading, and new cultural experiences.

I am happiest when in the art and act of creation – be it new smarter ways forward, lateral ‘out of the box’ thinking or fresh perspectives and solutions for decidedly stale issues.”
