    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. ’ Coach Carter- 2005 movie.


    My purpose is to get you to play your life's biggest game.


    Hi, I am the entrepreneur CEO, speaker and best-selling author. My life experience is vast and diverse and has led me to realise that magic for me happens at the intersection of entrepreneurial leadership and personal growth. This is the essence of my life and both professional hats I wear currently.

    - Leadership & Strategy advisor: I specialise in assisting executives & entrepreneurs to become highly valued, highly paid and create success in life and work, translating into increased valuation of their businesses and organisations.


    - CEO, Duke of Edinburgh's Award: We provide young people with a framework to become empowered young leaders, involved community members and head into the future with confidence.


    With more than 15 years of international experience with African, European & Asian corporations, I bring a high level of cross-cultural, business and people expertise to my work, both locally and internationally.


    I have a reputation for being straightforward and goal-driven to achieve breakthroughs for my clients. I leave my clients feeling in love with their life & work.



    My motto is : If you feel there is more to you, then there is definitely more. Be bold and take charge of your journey to an authentic, fulfilling & successful life.


    Dare to Dream!

    Founder: leadership & strategy

    Jan 2012 - Present



    You are great at what you do and need to get to the next level of business growth, succession planning, selling or exiting.


    You need to bring your organisation, board and people along the ride.


    Focusing on the 3 pillars of 'self leadership', 'brand leadership' and 'impact leadership'', I work with business leaders & entrepreneurs to create the strategy for maximisation of their business valuation through a collaborative, co-creative and high performance culture.

    What do they say about me!



    Jane W. Wang


    Cross-Cultural Consultant

    Anoushka is eminently trustworthy. Her confidence and forthrightness as a coach created that space of trust from the beginning. She asked powerful questions and listened powerfully. I always knew I had her support and grew tremendously in the process. Thanks Anoushka!



    Anja Serfontein


    ►THE BOUNCE BACK COACH | Executive Coach | Trainer | ACC ◄

    Anoushka has drive and combines I.Q. and E.Q equally . She is not only a very smart person, but paired with determination and will-power. Her career in the legal sector amplifies her ability to think with a sharp and analytical mind. But her true charisma shines through when meeting her in person. Her charm and optimism makes her a true pleasure to work with. I know of her strengths as a consultant and as a coach. I thoroughly believe that Anoushka can help any person to think outside their comfort zone and take actions for greater success in their lives.



    Gerald Furlong


    Managing Director at Maureva Ltd

    This is my personal recommendation for Anoushka Gungadin, one of the most prolific executive coach I have had the pleasure of working with in my firm. Anoushka is a great performer and has shouldered all the responsibilities assigned to her with a pleasant smile. Besides being a high-spirited consultant, Anoushka is phenomenal in giving shape to some innovative ideas.

    Anoushka definitely is an asset for any firm who is willing to invest in her skills.
    I recommend Anoushka as a consultant in your business and have full faith that she will prove to be one of your best business choices.


    Life is a never ending opportunity to learn.
