Having pioneered and spearheaded a number of great businesses I am a visionary and have been growing and innovating in the digital landscape in Africa for more than nineteen years. I leverage my core expertise to grow business, impart knowledge and experience to future digital practitioners through education and drive growth and adoption of cryptocurrencies across the continent.
At 22 Digital I provide strategic consulting and software development services to truly make a difference in the world through the clients I work with. 22 Digital works with brands that fit our core beliefs and values and where we can make a difference to our clients. We achieve this by creating projects that leverage technology and design to solve real-world problems for our customers.
My digital agency experience is vast and historically I was the Group Managing Director at iProspect, I was instrumental in establishing Deloitte Digital in Africa, and I was the co-founder and CEO of Social Code. I also started and was the CEO of Africa's largest social media aggregator, Afrigator, which won International awards and praise. I would later sell a stake of Afrigator to MIH Internet (Naspers) as part of an African expansion plan.
I am a well-respected leader and entrepreneur and have received multiple honours and International awards for the businesses that I have been involved with. My passion and commitment to the industry saw me being voted on as one of eleven members of the Silicon Cape Steering Committee when it was founded in South Africa back in 2008. Thereafter I served on the advisory panel for the Initiative once it was operational.
I was nominated to serve on the Professional Body for Digital Practitioners in April 2018. The PBDP aims to work closely with the DTI around Global Best Practice and to establish a Public Compact for the Accountability of Digital Practitioners and Companies in South Africa.
