About Vanessa Bluen

With a curiosity and passion for people, development, and new experiences, Vanessa Bluen, Managing Director of The Consultant Powerhouse, leads a talented team who design and implement customised learning solutions that shift individuals, teams and organisations to get where they want to be. Vanessa has managed to integrate what she loves doing, with her business focus - working with individuals in organisations at all levels to challenge their work and personal paradigms, build critical skills and play to their strengths.

She held a post at the University of the Witwatersrand for five years, lecturing in Organizational Behaviour. Many years as a corporate executive and successful entrepreneur have provided her with the business insight and experience to transform consultants and leaders into confident new economy business partners, adding value to their client’s success.Vanessa has shared her expertise on numerous occasions in the media, including Summit TV, Invent Yourself, SAFM, Radio 702 and SABC 3’s 3Talk with Noeleen Maholwana Sangqu. Articles on her work have appeared in The Business Times, The Star, Business Day and Finance Week. Vanessa was profiled as one of fifty women in Lisel Erasmus-Kritzinger’s book ’Inspirational Women at Work; one of the country’s top 6 motivators by Femina Magazine and was elected as a finalist for Boss Of The Year 2005.

Vanessa is committed to exploring opportunities where the Consultant Powerhouse training programmes can contribute to building leadership and confidence in youth development initiatives and supports a number of organisations in this regard such as Students in Free Enterprise, Cida City Campus and SAICE.
