My Background & Career Goals
I currently own a consultancy company and work as a freelance programme management consultant within the banking sector.

When l was an undergraduate, l made and sold luxury waistcoats and ties and provided catering services for workshops; activities that allowed me earn additional funds and manage myself came naturally to me.
Turning 40 this year has made me realise that although consulting is a lucrative career path, it is not the career path for me. Pursuing my goals to be an entrepreneur is paramount and one false start should not deter me. I am now more than ever, ready to acquire the knowledge and skills required to achieve my goals of becoming a successful entrepreneur. One of the first goals on my entrepreneurial agenda would be to re-examine my perceptions of what luxury means in our today world and how to channel these new ideologies into a sustainable and ethnical business.
