Telana completed a BSc(hons) in Psychology degree at WITS University. She spent some time working and traveling overseas before joining bidorbuy.com to set up their training and operations in South Africa and worldwide. In 2002, she worked as a Coach for Nandos, after which she helped expand Omega Cycling while studying coaching further. Upon graduating as an Associate Certified Meta-Coach, she started her own coaching practice, Inner Coaching, in 2004.
Telana’s own challenges with communicating led her to specialize in this skill, and develop training and coaching programmes to help individuals develop their ability to express themselves, and their potentials. She has been involved in founding COMENSA (Coaches and Mentors of South Africa) and MCF (Meta Coach Foundation) to help develop the coaching industry in South Africa.
She is fascinated by the evolution of enlightenment and consciousness and our ability to create in the world. And thus she focuses her time on relating, leadership and entrepreneurship projects and studies.
She has been the keynote speaker at events and conferences, and appeared on radio and television, and been interviewed for many magazines and newspapers. She was a finalist in the 2011 Feather Awards for the “Business Icon & Entrepreneur” category.
Besides coaching and training, Telana is carrying out a trading project where she is trading a matchstick up into an office using the power of networking and the internet (see onematchstick.co.za) and she sits on the board as the Chair of YBSA (Young Business for South Africa) to develop young entrepreneurs and leaders. She is also the Anchor Host of the online TV Show, “Let’s Talk Possibility”.
