My life's journey from Corporate to Small Business
Dyean is a chartered accountant that started her career in a professional services firm and later transitioned to a small business owner.
Starting at Deloitte in South Africa, Dyean worked with the big 4 consulting firm for over 10 years, providing tax and accounting services to SMEs. She continued her corporate journey in Australia and 5 years later found herself as a Mum to two young sons wanting to work around her young family. At a time when many people didn’t know what the cloud was, Dyean found herself trailblazing her way with her small business by working remotely.
Dyean’s superpower is as a growth strategist. She was an early adopter of cloud technology and knows how it can improve conversations, business and lifestyles – she went from home based small business owner to growing her practice into a national business in under 3 years.
Dyean’s journey has had many highs and lows, led her to new experiences and gained her accolades for changing the accounting profession. She was listed globally as one of the Top 50 most Influential Women in Accounting in 2017 and 2019. With her sons all grown up now, she has transitioned back to the corporate boardroom.
