Yulanda joined PwC Namibia after an extensive career working in various industries across Ghana, Mali, Namibia and South Africa, designing and implementing various big scale change projects as well as leadership and people systems for multi-national corporations. She believes in a systemic approach, as it sustains deeper changes that will enable agile environments where people will want to work and where leaders deliberately design improved business performance. Not just to ensure operational excellence in this financial year, but also to ensure a new and improved business is designed, including skilled and capable people, to enable new and challenging future states.

Yulanda is internally trained and registered Practitioner in the Assessment of Executive and Operational team Capability, validating and linking longer term career paths to talent and succession programs. Organisational Capability auditing is also rolled out by understanding what work and cross functional relationships are required to ensure effective leadership decision-making, at all levels of the business, not just the top. She designs effective organisations using best practice and behavioural competence frameworks for each level in the organisation.
