Our Clients

I‘ve worked with Maxi-Lee for many years and she has made a significant impact in a number of ways. Not only has she spent hours patiently engaging with me, educating me and taking me through calculations and explanations on BEE, answering my questions over and over so that I could achieve the delivery required. She played an instrumental role in moving our businesses to achieve a Level 1, providing strategic input, brainstorming ideas and giving simple context to otherwise complex challenges.

I not only admire her business acumen and sound knowledge, but her passion and enthusiasm to make a difference, see real transformation in its purest form and helping the youth of our country to grow and develop are truly inspiring. She does what she does because she wants to add value – which she does with her entrepreneurial flair, business mind and genuine care for people.

Maxi is solutions focused and doesn’t only talk the talk, but walks the distance with you – as a client, I feel that she is invested in what I do. This makes all the difference!

Nicola Truter – HR Director Sturrock Grindrod Maritime

I have worked with Maxi-lee for many years. When I met her, I was a brand new, inexperienced business leader. To say that I benefited immensely from the support that she provided as a consultant from a transformational, non-traditional leadership style perspective, is an understatement.

It is a privilege to have access to her from a more coaching and mentoring perspective now, as my feeling has always been that she takes time to understand the unique requirements of each business, and the leaders who run them.

I particularly enjoy her practical and direct approach to leading self effectively, before leading others. I find her, “silence the negative voice in the head” philosophy both liberating and inspiring.
