About Me

I am an entrepreneur and a qualified attorney, serving as the Founder and Director of Thekvest Legal Advisory Services (Pty) Ltd. My extensive expertise in the industry, combined with my unwavering commitment to hard work, led me to achieve recognition as an alumnus of Fortune Magazine's Most Powerful Women program. This recognition was earned through my active participation in the 2019 mentoring program, a distinguished collaboration between Vital Voices and the U.S. State Department.
Our range of services spans across various areas of general company and corporate law advisory, with a focus on tailoring our support to the unique needs of our clients. Whether working with small and medium-sized enterprises, family-owned businesses, or high-growth ventures, we dedicate ourselves to fostering excellence.
In addition to my role as a Company Secretary, I am deeply passionate about guiding clients in their corporate governance practices, placing a strong emphasis on ethical business conduct. This commitment extends to my involvement as a non-executive director and an independent trustee for several impactful organizations, where my skills and network contribute to meaningful progress. I currently lead a sub-committee for a social and ethics board.
Having gained experience as a sought-after guest speaker, I seize every opportunity to share authentic stories and insights that can inspire positive change within organizations and the lives of their employees. This drive has culminated in the launch of the Unleashed Leadership Development Forum.
