I have started mobile content businesses and am currently consulting to a mobile learning and development start-up. I have coached Scrum Masters, Product Owners and senior leadership in delivering technology in the financial services and banking world. My leadership and people management skills have been refined over many years of focused personal development.

While at Absa bank, I was accountable for driving the Agile transformation across Africa, creating a culture of innovation and business excellence. Working at a senior level in the bank our team created a knowledge centre responsible for education, coaching, community and thought leadership. Together, we developed a sustainable agile ecosystem within the bank, namely in transforming HR, Finance, Audit, Payments, IT and Governance. With my background in media, technology and human capital I drove the creation of multiple products and delivery teams across the investment bank, retail bank and insurance with particular success in the digital space with mobile banking, online banking and chat banking teams. I advocate that leaders commit to and built human capability before creating an environment conducive to scalable and sustainable transformation. The investment in the development of new educational practices for Scrum and Product Ownership has shown great success and has been recognized within the Africa Agile community as one of the top programmes currently on offer in South Africa.
