We know Big Business because we have worked there.
We understand Small Business because we own one.
In 2014 after a 30-year stint in the corporate sector I ventured into the world of Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMME’s). Starting my own business made me see the many challenges that SMME’s face. One that stood out was the lack of guidance when it came to creating a strategy that fits the personal needs of an individual SMME.
And so RLActive was born.
RLActive is passionate about helping SMME’s to grow and develop. We provide owners, managers and teams the necessary tools and expert guidance to create an effective strategy.
RLActive assists SMME’s to create strategies that transform their business. Our unique Strategy Creator is a 3-step process that helps you to Build, Execute and Track your own tailor-made strategy in real time.
RLActive’s objectives are to create value, solve problems and always stay connected to our clients.
A word from our Principal Consultant
Starting my own business made me see the many challenges that SMME’s face. That there isn’t enough time, you need to be knowledgeable in everything and no one really wants to help. It all went well initially, until I hit a wall.
It took me a while, but I went back to the basics and re-analysed my business and realised that there were many challenges that cropped up and I was too busy to address them properly. I addressed the challenges and we started growing again and then we hit another wall, I applied the same methodology and those challenges were addressed.
I have over 30 years of experience in managing a business both in South Africa and abroad. I started by studying Electrical Engineering and eventually did an MBA as well. My passion is identifying “challenges” in a business and developing solutions to resolve the challenges. I have an innate ability to see through the distractions and identify the root of the problem. I love sharing the knowledge and experience I have gained through my travels and interactions with customers.
I don’t want to see people stumble and fall with the same challenges that I did. I want to offer my knowledge, expertise and help people navigate these challenges.
