Exiting the corporate world in December 2017 after 32 years, Jaydev embarked on a portfolio career, establishing his own company, Ujala Digital Pty Ltd. The company focuses on Executive Coaching & Mentoring, ICT Consulting, Sales & Marketing of Disruptive digital products as well as serving on boards bringing a very strong ICT background, including Cyber Security and Technology Governance (King III & IV).

Prior to that, Jaydev’s career has been steeped in the ICT industry for more than 30 years across the academic, broadcasting and telecoms industries. He had spent 19 years with Vodacom and in particular spent the last 6.75 years building one of the strongest IT teams within the Vodafone Group in his role as Chief Information Officer of the Vodacom Group. He has built up an extensive range of competencies from exceptionally strong leadership capabilities, people management, excellent interpersonal skills, commercially minded and IT management covering all facets of the business as well as risk management, cyber security management, technology governance and compliance. He was also the key IT interface between Vodacom Group and the Vodafone Group serving on the Vodafone Global CIO Leadership team.


“My executive coaching journey with Jaydev has been truly eye-opening… I love Jaydev’s coaching process as it
has challenged me to think differently. Over the last few months, I have broken through many internal barriers
resulting in a change in the way that I approach my goal orientation – both personally and at work. Jaydev’s
unique ability to share his many years of experience navigating the C-suite, has enabled me to see beyond my
blind spots and better understand my career challenges. Thanks Jaydev, for helping me find my balance!” –

Digital and Business Transformation Lead, Comms & Media Africa

I first off wanted to take time to say thanks for the session that we have had. Having come into these sessions
as a newbie, I was uncertain what to expect, but it has been a really positive experience for me, and
something that I would definitely recommend to anyone considering it.
Over the months that we have engaged, you have really become someone that I can bounce ideas off, have
open discussions with about career, family and life in general, but even more importantly be able to have
conversations with someone who has lived through and experienced most of the things that all working
people struggle with in trying to find a balance between career and life. And understanding that career could
be life (and that is ok) but also that there is more to life than just career and how important balance is.
