Vusi in a nutshell

  • Business Mogul

    At 25 he ran a R400mn division in a R17bn multi-national. Today he is one of the youngest directors of a listed company and is the CEO of a boutique investment and advisory firm that forces medium, large and listed businesses into much needed, often painful, always lucrative new directions. He also serves on several boards. The edge of chaos is the world in which he lives.

  • Global Speaker

    He doesn’t just talk business – he lives it. He does more than inspire revolution, he initiates it. He has been the catalyst for change in businesses across the globe through expertise in strategy, leadership and sales. New York, London, Paris, Lagos, Jersey, Guernsey, Rio de Janeiro, Dar es Salaam, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Colombo, Nairobi, Kampala, San Francisco and another 21 global cities have all experienced Vusi.

Vusi's talents don't just encompass business. A keen petrol head too, Vusi loves racing cars in his spare time and challenges himself to accomplish one ‘terrifying’ thing every year. Heck, he's even raced cars against F1 champion, Mika Hakkinen.
