About Injabulo Meet the Team

Leisha Naidoo: Founder                            I believe that life is a gamble. I shift people, teams and organisations to play like you are going to win.

Entrepreneur, Global Conference Speaker and Organisational Development strategist. My experience spans a decade in Corporate South Africa, including multinational experience. The years have been earmarked by significant achievement within People Practices in emerging markets. Including but not limited to, Employer Branding, Performance Management, Organisational Development, Talent Management, Learning and Development Strategy, Building High Performing Teams, BBBEE Scorecard alignment, SETA Funding, Graduate Integration Initiatives and end to end Skills Development.

I would best describe myself as an eternal optimist. I am ridiculously ambitious, entrepreneurial by nature and results driven. I am most energized by building Business, Brand and the Bottom Line. I spend much of my life pursuing my goals, trying to see the world and spending time with the people that feed my soul. I've also had the privilege of meeting Barack Obama. I doubt that's relevant, I just like sharing it with people. The hats I wear proudly are wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend to an invaluable support structure.

Devene Naidoo: Business Performance Coach                            “Yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games.” Babe Ruth

''If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself''

Serial Entrepreneur and Business Performance Coach by trade, I am driven by all things Business. I pride myself on quickly and astutely tuning in to the needs of the client which best positions me for bespoke consultation in Strategy, Leadership and Sales.

I impact Strategy, Process formulation and Implementation. My work culminates in post implementation metrics which helps organisations, SMME’s, teams and individuals to know the numbers that really matter. I uninhibitedly get in the trenches to use those numbers to effect the changes that truly matter. It’s no surprise then that the depth of my Corporate experience has been spent in the Financial Services Sector earmarked by significant achievement within Strategy Formulation, Scaling Businesses through Business Model Innovation, Performance Maximization and Financial Modelling.

An Academic at heart, I can always be found buried in a business book, or 3 and then critically challenging the perspectives with thought partners. The ethos of Injabulo was thus born to create alternate inroads to traditional academia in South Africa and beyond.

Bachelor of Business Administration: Cum Laude (Mancosa)

Higher Certificate in Operations Management (Boston)

Technical: Skills Development Facilitator, Instructional Designer, Advanced Facilitation, Team Development Specialist

I am inspired by humility, Thought Leadership and making a difference from grass roots levels.

Off the clock, I can be found swinging a club, running a trail or kicking a ball with my family. Never afraid of collaboration, my collective spirit and drive for impactful partnerships is born from many years in competitive team sports.

I recently graduated from the University of KwaZulu Natal with a Bachelor of Commerce in Supply Chain and Human Resource Management. 

I am energized by Innovation in practice, making a positive difference in peoples lives and building Skills that impact our economy. Having grown up in a small town on the South Coast of KZN, I have learnt the value of making my voice heard, building the right relations and leading sustainable change. I value, harmonious growth environments, constructive challenges and work that fuels my soul. Professionally, I would best be described as strong on process, synthesize information with ease and a planner!
