About me

I am a Chartered Accountant, and am passionate about learning and technology. My latest project is an online learning platform called TutnIQ, please check it out!


I have worked as an auditor, management consultant, corporate trainer and university lecturer.

I have helped dozens of organizations solve problems in areas ranging from systems implementation to financial reporting, and have also served on the Audit Committee of one of South Africa's metropolitan municipalities.

I have lectured university-level courses and presented seminars to thousands of people on a variety of topics including: accounting, IFRS, finance for non-financial people, fraud prevention and public sector financial regulation. I have developed training and assessment material for a number of organizations in South Africa and internationally.


I hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Rhodes University and an Honours Bachelor of Accounting Science degree from the University of South Africa. I am also a member of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants.

Work with me!

I am interested in opportunities in the following areas:

  • Technical accounting issues (IFRS, etc).
  • Auditor trouble-shooting.
  • Development of organizational processes and procedures.
  • Setting up accounting departments.
  • Committee functions (Audit committees, directorships, etc).
  • Technology strategies and implementation.

Education (including workshops)
  • Development of bespoke training material on financial and managerial topics.
  • Online education.
  • Corporate training and lecture support on finance-related topics.
  • Strategy workshops.
  • Speaking engagements.
