Kieron joined Sirdar in February 2020 bringing with him diverse skills and vast experience in culture transformation, coaching as well as team and leadership development gained over 30 years. His wealth of knowledge comes from working with clients across all sectors of the economy in Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Australia and Canada. Kieron enjoys the diversity of clients and people that he interacts with – various industries, economic sectors, geographies, challenges and opportunities. His role also sees him being involved in multiple aspects of our clients’ businesses and dealing with role players at the highest level in organisations, where decisions and real impact can be made.
He uses what he knows – his skills, knowledge and experience – to bring out the best in people, processes and systems to create sustainable results. He believes that the perception of success lies in the eyes of the client, so knows that great things have been achieved when a client continues partnering with us and goes on to refer us to others. Kieron’s favourite quote is from Teddy Roosevelt entitled The Man in the Arena which he feels sums up everything about being an entrepreneur: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
