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 sustainable companies and 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 entrepreneurial firms achieve financial and operational stability, scale and wealth via M&A, innovative capital events, joint ventures and possibly an IPO.

 

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 11 successful financial and professional services

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

new revenue in 18 months. 

Researched positive leadership choices for entrepreneurial CEOs at University of Oxford.

 

Read Leadership at Henley Business School in the UK

and Management at the Irish Management Institute in Ireland.

 

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)!
