Linley has in the past used his expertise to co-found and drive a successful niche service in the financial services industry - Net Treasury ... and has provided excellent and value adding service to his clients. He has worked hard to perfect products and offerings and has made innovative use of the resources he has available. To illustrate this, Linley has made extensive use of his networks to think through ideas and refine offerings; he has deployed the professional services of family and friends to help start and develop his business and has not let major set backs deter him from his end goal.This drive and perseverance can be seen in the work at Net Treasury, the performance management tool he has developed as well as his passion and enthusiasm for Vencubate. this drive and passion is not only used for personal gain but the opportunity this presents makes it possible not only to develop his business but the benefits can be extended to others. He has capitalised on opportunities as they presented themselves but he has also exercised caution and prudence in arriving at outcomes. Apart from being used as an advisor, Linley is also a trusted friend and confidant and we attended the same school.
