HI, I'M USHA
THIS IS MY STORY
I went from a small town Trainee Accountant to Director in a prestigious audit firm and then left it all behind to pursue my passion and purpose.
Now I help women who are determined to create their own paths to success, who will allow nothing to hold them back. When these strong women hit the peaks in their careers, and stretch themselves further to scale their contribution far beyond just their own personal and professional success, they are seeking a level of greater influence and impact to their companies and communities.
I do this, because, when women win, everyone wins!
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Growing up, I always dreamed that I would retire at the age of 40.
I had never imagined, though, that months before turning 40, I would actually be walking away from the high powered professional position as a Director in a Big-4 audit firm, to start afresh.
Amidst all of the shock and questions around me, I boldly stepped away from an exciting 16-year corporate career (that I loved), from a comfy monthly salary and from everything that was known and familiar... to begin the next part of my life's journey.
My professional journey began with my first (and only) job where I started as a Trainee Accountant after graduating. My career had all of the highs and lows of a high performing, male-dominated workplace, and I shattered setbacks, crushed challenges and conquered fears to enjoy a highly successful career which included qualifying as a Chartered Accountant (SA), many promotions along the way and spending my final 6 years in the firm as a Director.
LEADERSHIP AND WOMEN EMPOWERMENT SPECIALIST
My journey in corporate followed three distinct stages which covered my progress from a newly appointed graduate all the way up to Director in the firm. The third stage is also where I prepared myself for the journey that would unfold post-corporate.
Now I run my own business as Leadership and Women Empowerment Specialist where I serve through my Coaching, Mentoring and Speaking. I am also a Non-Executive Director, Board Committee Member and part of the Leadership Team of the PSASA Virtual Chapter.
STAGES OF MY PROFESSIONAL JOURNEY
In the beginning, I had to figure out how to transition from book to practical smarts. I had to learn and implement the secrets to high performance - performance and productivity is the gateway to opportunity.

GROWING AS A LEADER
Then, as my performance was recognised, opportunities started to unfold. Now I had to develop and sharpen my leadership skills to ensure I was equipped and ready to step up to each new level in my career.

INCREASING MY INFLUENCE
Stepping into leadership roles is just the beginning. I discovered what I stood for, differentiated myself, used my voice and became a force for what I believe in. to build a legacy, you have to grow your influence.
