GERRARD FOSTER

Welcome. This space is an opportunity
for me to share my experiences,

the skills I’ve developed

and the network I’ve established.

Let's Connect
I entered this world in 1980 and, from that first day, the journey has been filled with colour, experience and opportunity. I established my first business at the age of 5 when my mom gave me a box of bubblegum and my grandmother taught me a great lesson in choice. – instant gratification or long term benefit. And, out of the 200 pieces, I ate 3 and sold the other 197.

I sincerely believe
one’s value lies in the network;
I am because they are.

Having been blessed with a diverse set of skills and many colourful experiences. I believe in recognising and nurturing the leader in everyone, especially the self. Important components of leadership are encouraging education, but also mentorship, embracing the “Each 1, Teach 1” philosophy. Collaboration is key.

My vision is simple, to unify the continent through what I believe is one of its greatest riches, music, entertainment and culture. The next step is to be a top 5 exporter of this natural wealth to the rest of the world. A colourful story, told to a rhythm by a colourful people from a bright continent, long believed and rumoured to be dark.

My journey thus far has taught me to seek opportunity in every circumstance, be visionary, think laterally, be humble and respectful but firm when needed. One must always be accountable. I always seek to get the job done with integrity. The projects and opportunities which resonate most with me are the ones which affect true positive change by having innovation, longevity and sustainability at their foundation.
