What would constitute a perfect day for you? by Gwarega Dambudzo

For most entrepreneurs, time for relaxation feels like a waste. However, at some point, I realised that all work and no rest is a recipe for early departure. Therefore, I ensured we would disappear to some quiet resort during convenient school holidays every year, preferably with a golf course nearby. So, a round of golf in the morning, a relaxed family lunch in the afternoon and some family games later in the day would make a perfect day. I always carried a good business book for that time when the kids were wasting excess energy running around. A perfect working day would be one where I could tick off all the items on my to-do list and leave the office ‘on time’.

About Gwarega Dambudzo

With a background in social and economic infrastructure delivery as an engineer, I redirected my energy into mentoring owners of small and medium-sized businesses to formalise their structures, comply with legislation, improve operations and financial performance, manage risk, and build strategic partnerships. An MBA qualification helped me to hone these skills while leading and managing a consulting engineering practice I founded more than ten years ago. I am passionate about entrepreneurship, business strategy, governance, stakeholder engagement and risk management, skills I am ready to deploy on any Board as a non-executive director. On the topical nexus of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG), I believe diversity and inclusivity are beneficial to organisations and should be leveraged responsibly without destroying the value-creating capacity of the organisations.
