What I do

Investments

I never invest in a company that I cannot personally add value to. Before I start working with anyone, I like to know what makes them tick so we spend time getting to know our investees to make sure we can all work harmoniously and effectively together. Apart from funding, we also help them plug into other external networks and resources such as legal advice, branding and marketing to allow us all to develop the company’s potential more effectively.

Strategic Advisory

If you’ve no idea where you’re heading, how on earth are you going to get there? I’ve been privileged to have used my experience and knowledge as a strategic advisor for organisations all over the world. I help companies create goals and give them the tactics they’ll need to get the best possible outcome in the future.

Coaching

When I was in charge of a successful, multi-million dollar company, I wasn’t happy. I would show up to work each day with no idea about what I should be doing. I didn’t know how to lead or how to act. The company almost outgrew me. This was an incredibly uncomfortable feeling and it’s a common problem with entrepreneurial leaders we work with. I would say one in three suffers from depression or anxiety.

Keynote Speaking

I never get tired of telling my story and fortunately for me, there seems to be a few people around the world who enjoy listening to it! Of course it is a story that is constantly growing and evolving and if I make a difference to anyone who maybe be inspired or galvanized to follow their own dreams by hearing about mine well, I’ve done my job!

Branding

Branding is all about delivering promises to your customers and your people – and success is measured by a company’s ability to deliver on those promises every single time. Branding is far more than a logo, name or corporate colour. The brand strategy that sits behind it is an enormous part of building a successful business. I help clients clearly define their brand and what it stands for, allowing them to make effective decisions to drive their company forward.

Marketing

Marketing is a crucial part of a company’s brand strategy, directly getting its message across to customers. Having been one of the first pioneers in the Middle East’s digital marketing space, I know what it takes to disturb markets and produce results in a industry that is constantly evolving.

Public Relations

I am a great believer in getting your brand out into the media and creating buzz; I’ve relied on PR so much over my career. If you put the message out enough times, eventually it becomes the truth. I want to do the same for my clients with an effective strategy that positively manages the communication channels between them and their stakeholders.
