Hello, My name is Maiyo.
I'm your partner in change and transformation and I'm ready to empower you to bring about the results you desire.
I’m a leadership coach, transformational speaker, dialogue facilitator and change and transformation consultant; through my work, I support individuals and organisations to understand that change is a necessary part of growth and progress. An organisations success is inseparable from the success of the individuals within it; thus, self-mastery and personal-development form the backbone of my work to drive a culture of self-accountability.
I’ve attended the Change Creator programme by Stanley Beckett and an endorsed Change Creator coach; I am an alumni of Motivating the Masses – Speak and Write for Profit training and; the JTFoxx Mega Speaker High-Level Speaker training.
Some of my recent work includes transformational talks around change management and purpose, and; individual coaching for results in a specific area. I have also facilitated nationwide Women Power Workshops that were held in all 9 provinces of South Africa.
I am also the managing director/managing consultant of Native Worx, a boutique consultancy that creates strategic and relevant solutions in change leadership and organisational re-alignment communication. We do this through combining our subject matter knowledge with project management skills to create a practical and integrated plan that brings your strategy to life.
I began my career in Wales United Kingdom where I attended primary and high school. I then relocated to South Africa where I did my post-school education.
I’m an avid reader and enjoy anything from academic organisational communication to African literature. Writing comes naturally and I’m a regular contributor to industry publications. I’m a respected voice on transformation and have featured on Kaya FM, Bizcommunity, Northwest FM, Talk Radio 702, You FM, Pheli FM, Cape Talk and True Love Magazine.
I’ve lived and travelled to different parts of the world including Ghana, USA, Uganda, Wales, Zambia, Swaziland and Tanzania to mention a few. I am the quintessential cosmopolitan African with a working knowledge of many African cultures and customs; a strength I use to win over diverse audiences.
