Achieving financial wellness is not always easy. As a presenter and workshop facilitator, Sylvia loves sharing her knowledge and empowering people to create financial freedom and grow their wealth. She has addressed thousands of people across South Africa and Namibia over the years, reaching diverse audiences. Women, in particular, are close to her heart.


Apart from smartwoman, Sylvia has authored and co-authored three other non-fiction books, one of which was shortlisted for the Alan Paton Award in 2011.

She has also contributed content on financial planning in two other published books, and ghostwrites for selected clients from time to time.


As an independent financial planner, Sylvia works with her clients to chart their financial futures, whether its investment planning, retirement planning or protecting their assets and income.

Life changes all the time, and with a flexible, dynamic financial plan in place, the future is secure.

About Me

I have always taken money rather seriously. From a young age, I developed an appreciation of the value of money and the importance of managing it properly.

With a focus on women’s empowerment and educating women around money and financial planning, I work with all forms of media and reach thousands of people through radio, print media and face-to-face workshops.

My core belief is that financial freedom is every person’s right, and a lack of knowledge and apathy prevent us from achieving this.
