ABOUT US

Mark | Co-Founder & CEO

Mark is a psychologist specialising in the development of Emotional Intelligence for adults. He has worked in the mining, logistics, finance and manufacturing industries; first as a partner in Excelebrate(Pty) Ltd and then as an associate in Tandem Training. He is the founder and CEO of Mygrow, an online training platform for adult personal development. He is currently doing a PhD focusing on “The impact on organisational culture of developing Emotional Intelligence via online micro learning platforms”. He is married to Robyn, his pride and joy, who makes his heart skip a beat often.

Theran | Co-Founder & Creative Director

Theran is a creative genius, a film maker and a master story-teller at heart. He has studied fashion design, been a professional musician for 5 years, authored a book, built his own house, produced film and been a professional speaker around the world. His design and story telling eyes are set on humanising the Mygrow environment. Being a father of 3 and mad about (not with) his gorgeous wife, Debbie, life is fairly full; but that never stops him from taking every opportunity to marvel at the smaller things in life like great coffee, rainbows, a fresh apple danish and good lighting.

Patty | Business Development

Patty has spent most of her career positively impacting on peoples lives. First through Garden Route Personnel, a recruitment consultancy she successfully ran for 20 years, and now through her work in business development for Mygrow. Having been involved in training and development of people she is the type that notices those whom others tend to forget, and is a gifted encourager and networker. With her two daughters now out of the house she is able to thoroughly enjoy her weekends with her husband Derek. We are yet to figure out which of them adores the other more.

Merissa | Executive Assistant

Merissa is a Social Worker who has given the majority of her career to the support and upliftment of those who have the odds against them. Having successfully navigated her way through five years of life changing work through Child Welfare, she gave herself permission to bravely take a step away from child support and towards the support of adults' personal development through Mygrow. She has walked her own deeply personal journey, is very reliable, loves mint tea and makes sure Mark reads his emails. She is married to the very good-looking Mike and they share their apartment with their beloved pug (who snores) and a cat.
