My name is Tendai Bruce Mubayiwa. I am a highly networked strategist using chess principles to bring out the best in people and organisations. Many people are so talented and amazing but bogged down by a number of things including poor self esteem, lack of confidence or self belief and poor gameplan on how to achieve their goals. Working in a safe space I facilitate open and honest conversations that propel people to greatness.
My outlook and perspective in life is influenced deeply by the ancient game of chess.
I use Chess4Life and Chess4Biz and methodologies for Life and Business Consulting respectively. I work with executives, professionals and entrepreneurs.
I am chartered certified accountant (ACCA) with +20 years experience including at least 10 years in governance, risk and audit and +10 years in digital marketing, business coaching and mentoring.
I also have a keen interest in marketing and social media. As a LinkedIn coach, trainer and strategist I was one of the pioneers in promoting LinkedIn in South Africa. I shared training material on LinkedIn with hundreds of people over the years.
I have +25 years involvement in chess and co-founded 2 of the largest Pan-African Chess websites, Africa Chess and Africa Chess Media. I am a founder of some of the largest chess groups on the Telegram platform dedicated to chess in Africa, Africa Chess News and Africa Lichess Events. I am a former World Open U1800 section chess champion. I was volunteer at the World Chess Championship in New York in 2016 where I met world chess Champion Magnus Carlsen. As Operation Manager at Millionaire Chess I was involved in helping to organise one of the richest chess opens in the world.
I have been featured on Good Morning Africa and eNCA over the years.
