DEVA NAIDU

Founder of The + Group

Above all things I am dedicated to activating people’s strengths, to help create positive leaders. To help

build business services firms and sustainable communities.

I am a passionate advocate and supporter of entrepreneurs, as they are the lifeblood of any

economy. Dreamers, change makers, that sacrifice so very much to help create a new paradigm. Yet many entrepreneurs never achieve full financial freedom.

 

That is why I help CEOs and Managing Directors of business services firms achieve financial and operational stability, scale and wealth via M&A, innovative capital events, joint ventures and IPOs.

 

Over 25 years experience with leadership roles in the

UK, Ireland and AsiaPac. Previously a Country Manager for a boutique private equity firm and Country Head

for a global talent consultancy. Launched  over 17 successful financial and business services

companies and products. Instrumental in building a €100m recruitment group and winning €21 million in

new revenue in 18 months. 

 

Read Executive Finance at the University of Oxford.

Leadership at Henley Business School UK,

Management at the Irish Management Institute, Ireland and Drama at University of Melbourne, Australia.

 

Studied Applied Positive Psychology and qualified as a Coach with Dr Robert Biswas - Diener.

 

I started my working life as an actor and was a self defense instructor for 1 day. (Ask me what happened)!
