From being voted as the naughtiest kid most likely to fail at school, I found success in the information and technology sector as a young sales and marketing executive, culminating in an executive sales and strategy role for a large information technology company based in Germany. On my return to South Africa, my passion to inspire leadership led to the creation of TowerStone. I am continually amazed by how much we have achieved in such a short time, but it is also humbling to realise how far we have to go, considering we are such a young organisation.
My role in TowerStone includes business and purposeful content development, coaching, writing and strategic consulting. My core purpose is to encourage all those I come into contact with to see the world through a different set of lenses to realise their potential. Many of us are unaware of our past conditioning, blocking growth and development that keeps us in false comfort zones. What is so desperately needed from leaders and human beings is to become aware of the lenses that trap us, so that we can realise the full splendour of who we are and what we can achieve and contribute. To consciously lead, to be a model example, and to let go of the old to inspire the new, is one of the toughest aspects of a personal life journey.
I am driven by the need to inspire others. My life purpose – as a coach and facilitator – is getting up every morning and showing care for all those around me; inspiring them to seek greater meaning in their lives and helping them to Purposefully live a life that matters – a life that is fulfilling and meaningful, filled with love at the core of everything. And indeed, this is how I live my own life.
