"Since childhood, my passion has been connecting different worlds. In my opinion, living by a strong set of values is very important. I believe you must trust everyone until they prove themselves unworthy of that trust. I also believe in empowering people, whether at work or in your private life. In my view, micromanagement is killing innovation and proactivity. Hence, I think leading by example and offering guidance and advice is the way to go. Life-long learning is essential not just for professional development, but also for personal development. I live in Singapore, in the heart of South East Asia. Living here gives me the opportunity to experience first-hand the fast-paced change and adaptation to new technologies of Asian markets and to get involved in the region. I’m part of a social project that aims to empower people to build a Safe Water Garden network, a low-cost, efficient, life-changing sanitation system for rural villagers around the world. I’m a frequent traveller & global CSO. I’m connecting different worlds."

"I am the co-founder of an exciting digital media and marketing group called Ole! Connect, head-quartered in Cape Town and with offices in Johannesburg, London and Leeds. In my career, I have travelled an interesting route through the business world, traversing various disciplines, products and continents. I’ve learned that it’s important to be open to change, willing to embrace the new and learn from the old, and to value human interaction in all situations. Casting a glance around my office today, I see a group of warm and vibrant people of diverse ages and backgrounds, with a wide range of skills and a shared sense of purpose. And that purpose is – quite simply – to be valuable. To do work that adds value in terms of meeting and exceeding business requirements for clients, partners and owners alike. Work that is created in an environment where strong values and sound business ethics are espoused. And where the importance of adding financial value is understood, too. Through the true empowerment of our people, we have been able to liberate talent and ignite enthusiasm. We’ve chosen AALTO-ESADE as our partner in higher learning, because we believe it is an institution that will reinforce our organisational drive to create a place where greatness has the opportunity to happen."
