If I had to sum it up in one sentence I would say that the purpose behind the Business Coaching Hub is to stay true to my passion and vision of contributing in a meaningful way towards individuals and small business owners in South Africa and Africa.

That, however, requires more depth to give you the facts behind the birth of the Business Coaching Hub. After building a successful career in the corporate world for 28 years, I decided it was time to give back using the knowledge, skills, and resources I have obtained.

The South African and African SMME's have the potential to have a positive impact on the economy and unemployment rate and this is where my focus lies.

Thankfully the skills and knowledge I developed in marketing, sales, business and market development, personal development, business start-ups, and social media management over 12 years, provide me with the ability to empower others to build and grow a successful business.

My experience of living and working in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, provide me with a good understanding of the global market and business practices around the world.

Having lived and worked in The Netherlands for 4 and a half years, and in the United Kingdom for 4 years have provided me with a global view of the business world.

Helping entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small business owners are where I devote my time and it fulfills my purpose while at the same time having an impact on the economy and job creation.

The more my coaching business gained momentum and the more people I was able to coach, the more I found myself looking for opportunities to impact even more individuals and businesses. There is one question always on my mind “How can I reach more small business owners?”. This is where my knowledge and skills in the digital economy came to the rescue.

The Internet and social media platforms provide me with the perfect vehicle to reach more business owners than my one-to-one and one-to-many coaching sessions.

The Business Growth Network was created as a product of the Business Coaching Hub to provide business owners with valuable, tested, and proven business growth strategies through providing training, tools, resources, and support to its members.

I look forward to working with you and to welcoming and networking with you in the Business Growth Network.

The Business Growth Network is a product of the Business Coaching Hub (Pty) Ltd.
