About me

Part of the crew

I had the same ‘about me’ page for nearly 5 years so I’m changing it. There’s a lot to know about me but here are 5 things about me in no particular order:

ONE. I’m passionate and energetic. Remember this before you tell me about a new idea or involve me in something exciting. You better be serious about it because I’m basically a steam engine that won’t switch off. T&T

TWO. I’m married with 2 kids. My kids are worth every painful experience I’ve ever had. They love me regardless of whether I’ve showered or whether I clean floors for a living or whether I’ve gained a few pounds. There are times when that is all that keeps me going.The VC congratulates me at Henley Business School's Graduation Ceremony on Friday, 18th October

THREE. I’m a bit of geek. I have a number of university degrees (engineering, an MBA) and I recently took a break from corporate life for a few months. Loved those months off!

I’m undertaking a doctorate degree at Strathclyde Business School, Glasgow (Scotland). It’s the boldest thing I’ve ever done. And it’s awesome!


FOUR. I’m a selfie addict. There’s no good explanation for it. It’s not because I think I’m amazing. It’s just something I do. If I don’t do it, there’ll be hardly any pictures of me at all. What kind of existence is that?


FIVE. I love writing but I’m not certain I’m any good at it. I tend to have moments of inspiration were the words just pour out and within minutes, I’ve written a full-page of mind-blowing poetry. Those moments have been fewer as the years have gone by. But they are to die for. I keep writing – hoping for the return of the voice that once came from over my shoulder.

UPDATE: On 04 January 2016, I became a published author of ‘The Smart Sceptic’s Guide to Social Media in Organisations ‘. Check it out on here

  3. Nice to meet you – thanks for dropping by my site! I laughed reading your bio as my mom used to cut out ads for me when I was in high school and college about petrochemical engineers being the best career of the future. She still reminds me that I didn’t listen!

    Enjoying your blog and will add a link to my site.

    Many have been to school to learn something about the world we live in, and most of them have ended up doing something different from what they learned.

    Best wishes with your business brain (is it the left or right brain 😉 )

  10. Wow that is a huge change. You seem to be navigating life well and inspiring people in the process. BTW – I’ve visited Scotland (west coast) with my family and it was a dream vacation. The people were among the friendliest and the scenery and history were awesome.


  11. Ah, Scotland. I visited in August 2009 and fell in love. It’s beautiful. We stayed in S. Queensferry and spent our time exploring Edinburgh and enjoying the Fringe Festival. What a great time!

  13. It is good to hear that the fairest city of them all Aberdeen – and I have only good things to say about the city since I am an Aberdonian – has helped to get you on track with life. It has been 3 years since I left, but I will be back for good when my adventure is over…


  14. What a great intro! Thanks for letting us into your world a little bit. Wow, what a change from Africa to Scotland! But I’m sure it’s for something that means a great deal to you. And when you follow your heart, usually great things happen. Good luck!
