Armed with an MBA in finance from the Said Business School in Oxford among other qualifications, Nobuhle Ndlovu’s work includes investing in economies, growing businesses and building sustainable business ecosystems.
“I want to see more job creation and a more equitable society. I believe thriving businesses are the cornerstone of this,” she says. “I’m proud of myself knowing I’m making a positive difference to those around me and in my country.”
Her advice to her younger self? Work hard, and own it. “There’s no greater joy than realising that you’ve done 100% of the work that got you where you are. Actually, the biggest surprise to me is that you can do good and get paid for it.” Ndlovu is a firm believer in trying out as many things as possible. “It’s a great way to realise your Ikigai (purpose) faster,” she says.
Time spent towards improving health, sustaining relationships and pursuing passions will actually aid in building a sustainable work ethic.
