Something people will find interesting about you:
My favourite getaway doesn’t involve technology – taking a swag down south and trekking along the cape to cape and amazing beaches we have.
What are you passionate about:
I’m passionate about how technology can be used to improve businesses, and by extension the lives of the people within a business. Technology isn’t a substitute to a person, but empowers people to focus on quality areas to spend time – replacing repetition with creating value. Connecting services, educating entrepreneurs about financial management, and building systems – that’s what I love.
