Originally, I studied Sport Psychology at University, completing my honours degree with a focus on high-performance mental coaching.
During that time I did my fair share of personal development work with young athletes in swimming, golf & cricket. Ever seen an 11-year-old golf prodigy deal with the pressure of his dad’s presence on the course?
In my masters degree in Entrepreneur Philosophy I did papers on topics such as Action Learning and Entrepreneur Role Models. In fact, as it stands I’m exploring a Phd research study into the future of learning.
I joined and later became a partner in one of SA’s most reputable innovation agencies, World Wide Creative, where we launched our own internal education projects, built countless technologies and facilitated an innumerable amount of workshops and training programmes to foster internal innovation.
Most recently I spearheaded the launch of South Africa’s largest study ever conducted on the learning habits of entrepreneurs.
It is my personal belief that to Teach & Share brings people closer together and through these interactions, Wonder is found.
A philosophy that underpins my current role as CEO at Glengarry Capital, a leading source of capital for those reimagining the way humans learn, as well as in my philanthropic activities as Chairman of entrepreneur education initiative, the Heavy Chef Foundation.
As a Business Counsellor, my approach is rooted in helping entrepreneurs understand themselves and equip them with the tools to build their businesses, lead teams and manage the success and stress of life as an entrepreneur.
In my personal life, I am a husband, a father, an amateur screenplay writer, pizza lover and known to hit a mean 4-iron.
