What you don't know about me

My 'Africa Journey' began in South Africa back in 2005. Little did I know that my first year working and living on the African continent would change my life for good. As a young man, driven by idealism and the desire to 'make a difference', I quickly realised that real change does not come from outside, it comes from within. Keeping that in mind I spent more and more time on the continent and started my first ventures. Some succeeded and paid for my tuition fees, some failed and taught me life lessons. The most important lesson I learnt during that time though is that networks, information and a clear vision are key to success. Which got me into consulting...

Ever since, I founded AMENA Africa with the clear vision to become Africa's leading market advisory firm by accelerating Africa's potential!

My area of focus

Building a great team that delivers cutting edge results
