Founder, CrossRoads Company & Head, Women Presidents Organisation South Africa
With South Africa’s growth revised down to 1.5% in 2019, leaders need to think and act creatively in difficult economic situations.
Since 2015, Anni Wilhelmi has enabled a number of businesses and organisations to establish clear strategies with participative visions that others willingly follow, whilst coordinating operations and balancing conflicting interests of all members and stakeholders. The positive results of enhancing leadership within management teams are sustainable business, employment creation and increased profitability.
Anni leads leaders. She mentors and guides business owners, management teams and peer advisory platforms to be more effective leaders. She teaches them how to think strategically to resolve their challenges and maximize their opportunities. The results are better decisions and more accountability which in turn create better results. 10 years of leading Women President Organisation chapters within South Africa, which she launched in 2009, have honed strong facilitation skills. In 2014 Anni founded CrossRoads Company, a consultancy focused on strategic business planning which has successfully guided a diverse range of businesses and organisations, both private and public, through effective strategy, planning and difficult situations. In 2018, she launched The Woman’s Advantage forum in South Africa and in 2019 Women in Business Accelerator, both structured training programmes for emerging entrepreneurs.
Anni’s natural strengths are connecting with people and challenging leaders to be better leaders. Coupled with the collective genius in a peer to peer platform has proven to be a sound formula and her personal experiences provide a solid foundation to facilitate diverse, solution-driven thinking.
