Our Team

Frederick du Plessis Leadership Advisor


Over more than 35 years my career has included a wide range of strategy consulting and executive leadership development. This followed extensive global leadership experience across the hydrocarbons, chemicals, agri-nutrients and life sciences sectors.

I am fortunate to have experienced management and executive life from many perspectives, developing and executing corporate and business unit strategy, chemical site development, FDI, industry think tanks, management consulting and a range of operational and functional leadership positions.

I have served on the boards and executive committees of the largest petrochemical companies and governments, working in South Africa, the UK, Germany, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and have business relationships in over 40 countries.

An active mentor and coach for more than 20 years, I am a qualified INSEAD Executive Coach, INSEAD Executive Communications Coach, hold a variety of accreditations, and coach on the INSEAD Advanced Management Programme, International Director’s Programme, as well as run corporate executive team development programmes.

Currently, I focus on mentoring executives on career development and strategic thinking helping executives with career-reinvention, leadership consciousness and creating greater meaning and purpose in their lives. Personally, I am looking forward to completing a Doctor of Business Administration at Singapore Management University’s Lee Kong Chian School of Business.
