CEOs Sparring Partner

Many CEOs are strategically fatigued; find themselves in silos being gazed from outside, under-pressure by their board of directors, growingly vocal employees, and demanding shareholders and in many cases family members.

This can lead to what we call Growth Atrophy Syndrome (GAS). Ironically a lot of CEOs are like boilers bound to explode. The inability to vent, and to share their challenges and trepidation in a non-judgemental and receptive context is a major concern.

We provide impartial, independent, conflict-free counsel and advice through the thick-and-thin to steer and foster new thinking. Supporting Sr. Leaders within discreet and safe spaces, as a sparring partner, at their own pace to re-align their tactical stakeholder engagements and to rejuvenate their strategic creativity for growth acceleration.

Tony Bury

Born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, Tony Bury grew up in an area which borders Southern Africa’s most beautiful National Parks. As a result, Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book, the story of Mowgli and the lessons he learnt from his animal mentors, has resonated with him throughout his life.

Tony is a serial entrepreneur, having established 18 start ups in his career. Having exited from the majority of these businesses, he maintains private equity shareholdings in a range of businesses; consultancy, energy, trading, engineering and industrial services.

Tony’s first charitable organisation, the Mowgli Foundation, was born in 2008 from a strong conviction that entrepreneurs the world over should have access to the support that he believes helped him succeed – the mentoring which he received throughout his business and personal life.

These entrepreneurs will make a significant economic impact including providing employment, and strengthening the voice of entrepreneurs in civil society for sustainable social development. Furthermore his vision is that Mowgli’s mentors will make a significant difference to their communities, by putting mentoring at the centre of their personal and leadership development.
