My success pillars
It’s about growth and the value I add to those I partner with. Success is the value I add to myself. Significance is when I add value to others. The success of my career has four key pillars:
- Relationships formed with believers in my work
- Responsible decisions made
- Fast actions taken delivered meticulously
- Best of breed people and teams
My career was founded by starting my own events and production business in 2001 whilst studying Architecture. To expand my experience I have joined some of the leading agencies, like Ogilvy, EXP Group Africa and Penquin International.
More recently, I have been the MD of LIVE+ where I pioneered the Blue Ocean Strategy of “Connected Activation” in collaboration with a fantastic team, to drive the start-up digital, content and activation business into uncontested market place.
