Strategy & Business Planning
Planning for Business Success
Successful and thriving businesses all have a number of things in common – Inspirational leadership with a stong focus. A solid understanding of the business territory, market place and competition. Clear goals and practical strategies to drive growth and build value. A motivated and empowered team to execute strategy.
Creating this reality is easier said than done! You need a solid strategy to get there….

This is what others have to say…
Gina became my business coach, tutor and friend in February 2013. She has managed to change the way I view my business altogether – as a small business through the lens of any full-scope operator, allowing me to discover strengths and weaknesses I didn’t even know of – but making complete sense in the design of the Kaleidoprax turn-around strategy. She has become invaluable as my part-time Strategic Director!
Zerelde Uys – Managing Director, Kaleidoprax Institute
Gina is a diligent motivated professional who communicates well and has a sound technical understanding of her work. She seeks to build solid and sustainable relationships with her stakeholders while not compromising the independence and quality of her work. I believe one of her greatest strengths lies in getting the very best out of the people she works with and growing the potential and ability of her team.”
TM – HR & Recruiting Professional
Gina is an action-oriented individual, striving for perfection. She is an excellent strategic and change management consultant and business advisor, trusted by her clients. She conducts herself at all times in a professional manner, she commands respect and inspires those working with her. She openly displays her passion for making the most of human capital and has a flair for creative problem solving. In summary, I have witnessed on many occasions how Gina translates vision into reality for her clients by advising and assisting them in devising strategies, business plans, etc. and then support them in a step-by-step manner to implement successfully
