Entrepreneur and Educator with a Technical Background
There are many business coaches, consultants and accounting firms who claim to be able to do strategic turn arounds for businesses and assist particularly SME’s with qualified help… but not many have more than a basic diploma of a few months… It begs the question as to why someone would put their future in the hand of an organisation who might not necessarily be qualified or have the necessary knowledge to do so…. Tosca Group of Companies realised there was a desperate need for qualified business advise and with a true heart for both education and business, we founded TGC Business Consulting & Accounting Services.
Dr Leslie Boshoff holds a Doctor of Business Administration degree from Nelson Mandela University. The quantitative thesis, in the academic field of Entrepreneurship focuses on the role of belief systems in the strategic development of new business ventures. Additional to an academic interest, he is an experienced entrepreneur of more than 30 years. Dr Boshoff developed both Greenfield projects and did Strategic turn-around in others. He founded, developed Ocean Divers International, Ocean Gliders International and Cash cutters. He is currently the Financial & Strategic Director in TGC, Tosca Civil Engineering Lab, Tosca Chemical Lab and the Director in TGC St George’s (NPC) and Nouvo hair and Beauty salon.
His teaching experience has covered most areas of Business and Business Theory. As both an Entrepreneurship Scholar and business person he is an active voice and firm believer that many of South Africa’s problems can be solved by entrepreneurs. He is involved in educating and developing entrepreneurs from school to post-graduate level.
Dr Boshoff also holds a National Diploma (N4, N5 and N6) and a Trade test in Electronics, Pneumatics and Instrumentation from Olifantsfontein. His obvious technical and engineering skills were honed by an earlier career in the computer services industry, where he has gained valuable knowledge of project management, as well as practical experience in computer technology design and development. You might ask why this is relative, we believe it speaks to a well rounded and extensively educated business man and entrepreneur, equipped with both the practical, theoretical and technical know-how to help businesses navigate through tough times and assist them with the strategic planning and process to grow and expand your business.
He is experienced in growing businesses from a SMME to Medium business, ably assisted by his business partner, Mr Frederik Eijbers.
Mr Frederik Eijbers has extensive experience in the Civil Engineering Materials testing environment, he has a wealth of knowledge in designing anything form plastic compounded tar roads to floating concrete as well as Soil, water and sludge testing for agricultural, tourism, civil engineering, marine or environmental fields.
