business athlete // engagement architect // relentlessly curious
My career so far has been an epic journey learning about innovation, sponsorship and most importantly, people.
I started my career as a personal trainer, then moved to advertising and currently I am the Senior Brand Manager for Shield deodorant at Unilever in South Africa. I have been fortunate to work in both South Africa and the United Kingdom.
Throughout my career I’ve learnt that whatever you do, if people are at the heart of it and you do things that make a positive difference to someone in a small way, the business results will follow.
Sport embodies that.
I believe that sport is central to every culture and society and is core to an individual’s health, happiness and even business. Leveraging an athlete mindset in business and even life in general has proven successful for me and many others I’ve encountered. Above all I am striving to make a difference in South Africa through sport. Because of this, I founded the Unleash Academy as a platform to explore this further – Become a Business Athlete.
When I am not working, you will probably find me out running or hunting down another coffee shop in pursuit of the best coffee.
