I joined Thawte in the late 1990’s and after selling to Verisign, I left with the founder, Mark Shuttleworth and a core team to help initiate diverse projects in the now HBD group including the set up of the Venture Capital arm, establishing it as one of the few VC companies in South Africa focused on funding early-stage businesses.
In 2006 I took on the role of CEO and launched HBD Fund2, a strategic shift from start-up to early-stage companies focus. Together with my team, we secured and helped grow HBD’s investments in amongst other Fundamo, CSense and OrderTalk, which became high profile exits to Fortune 500 entities.
Over the years I have gained experience in launching concepts such as the Big Idea Conferences aiming at stimulating entrepreneurship; a trustee of the Shuttleworth Foundation; a director of the HBD group; a director Bsquare Communications that drove the Hip2b2 brand; a non-executive director; involved in exits of various companies from profitable sales to third parties, to management buyouts and placing companies in Business Rescue to liquidation; and establishing a start-up in Portugal and Sao Tome & Principe.
While at HBD in 2010, I started my coaching journey and over the next few years completed my coaching training, resulting in being awarded the Professional Coaching Certificate from the Centre for Coaching at UCT GSB. I have also been accredited with the ICF (International Coaching Federation) as an Associate Certified Coach and New Ventures West as a Certified Integral Coach. I have further studied the Enneagram resulting in becoming an Accredited Practitioner and work with individuals and teams to help them grow their self-awareness.
During this time I became passionate about the somatic side (body) and how this hugely influences our ability to shift. I am currently studying to be accredited as a Leadership Embodiment Coach which focus on primarily on the body to help support the changes you want to make.
