Vernon Cresswell was raised in Mpumalanga, South Africa and was introduced to the wonders of nature at a very early age.
After qualifying with a B Com LLB degree - and diplomas in Tax and Company Law - he and some colleagues built a very successful Wealth Management business which they later sold to a large corporate. After serving out his restraint, Vernon was headhunted by one of the largest Banks in South Africa to start up their Private Bank. After he and his team successfully established this new Private Bank - and after being promoted to head up the Banks entire Wealth Division – Vernon decided to pursue something completely different….
He negotiated a consultancy arrangement with the bank and joined the “speaker’s circuit” where he combined his strong business background with something even stronger – his passion for nature! He highlights lessons that we can learn from nature and apply in our everyday business and personal lives. In his first year on the SA circuit, he was voted by his colleagues as “Best Newcomer”.
Vernon is a successful businessman, and it was understandable when he was enticed to sign up again with the same bank a few years later to establish a Wealth franchise for them outside South Africa this time – specifically in the Rest of Africa. He has successfully completed this “assignment” now and he is currently pursuing his own interests again.
Throughout his life, Vernon has always been part of some or other team. He has a proven track record in building and leading different teams - whether at school, university or during his highly successful business career. He understands what it takes to be part of a successful team and will share with us some of his secrets.
Lastly, he is also a highly qualified nature specialist and the author of a wonderful book entitled “Natural Teamwork”. It contains practical examples of teamwork in nature – supported by beautiful colour pictures - an ideal handout or corporate gift.
