Saahil MehtaRegional Director for India & Gulf Region
Saahil is an Entrepreneur, author and a Passionate Mountaineer.
Since 2010, Saahil has scaled 4 of the tallest mountains in the world- a dream that he harboured since childhood. As a Global Citizen Saahil has built successful businesses across 3 continents; but even thereafter he struggled to experience peace, happiness & abundance. And only once he conquered his self-limiting mental, emotional and physical clutter he was able to re-invent 4 key dimensions of his life. With his debut book BREAK-FREE he shares his personal journey of how he transcended all odds to scale the summits of his dreams, and how you too, can dream up new personal summits every day, once you have mastered the art of decluttering life by adopting his fool-proof process of breaking-free.
After helping leaders break free from these dimensions of personal clutter, Saahil realized that while this helps build a powerful launchpad, it may not be enough for an ambitious leader to grow as a global leader. To empower leaders to master the cutting edge tools and mindsets of leadership and excellence, Saahil has partnered with the legendary Marshall Goldsmith to help ambitious leaders learn the Art of Stakeholder Centered Leadership which he believes is non-negotiable for any leader or entrepreneur focused on building a legacy. As the Regional Director for the Stakeholder Centered Leadership Trainer program for India and Middle East, Saahil is working towards redefining the Art of Personal and Corporate Leadership to help people scale their summits of success faster.

Pieter GruenbaumRegional Director for South Africa, Namibia & Botswana
I am the luckiest guy, because you are reading my bio. Thanks for that.
I was born in the Free State in a small mining town, called Welkom, in South Africa, where I also grew up. The last 3 years of schooling we were living in a small Karoo town called Colesberg, where my parents had a Cafe/Diner/Guest House. I always enjoyed helping out and mingle with customers. At the age of 18 I joined the Army (it was a 2-year compulsory service) and returned to my town of birth to start a career in mining, as Welkom was founded in the 1940’s, because of gold. I eventually left the mining industry to pursue a career in Banking/Financing, where I was a lot more comfortable, and enjoying working with people.
We later moved down to the Southern Cape Coast, where we stayed until I got transferred to Mpumalanga.
My coaching career started in 2017, when my position was made redundant and I had to look for a new career. I bought the ActionCOACH franchise and became a business coach. Always being intrigued by the human side, I in the beginning of 2021, started the MGSCC certification and got certified in August 2021.
I am married to Sandra for nearly 37 years and we have two boys with families of their own now. Yes, we have 3 grandchildren. 2 boys and a girl. What a delight!
