Her early years were focused as an Economist before and epiphany changed her course and she found her true passion and pathway as Director of One Thousand and One, and Director of and Chief Storyteller at Yamini Naidu Consulting.

Active CEO Performance Tip

Chief Role Model – As a leader your real title should be Chief Role Model. The culture of a team or organization begins from the person at the top. You have a lot of power as a leader and with power comes great responsibility. As they say, the fish always starts to rot from the head. Your actions, behaviours, approach and leadership style determines the foundation of the culture. Be the role model for the desired values, behaviours and identity of the team or organization you lead.
