New Entrepreneur of the Year Application

Krysta Fox

Gulf Capital SME Awards – MEED

 

I am honoured to apply for New Entrepreneur of the Year. This page is an overview of our business, what we care about and my contribution to creating a sustainable business model for growth. Winning this award would enable us to reach even more influential leaders of the future who will change corporate life for ever.

We have a common belief that, in our own way, sharing what we have learnt about people-led leadership will change lives and businesses. And that’s what we’re doing…

Who We Are

We are a Dubai-based boutique, consulting firm providing advisory services to corporate executive teams. We focus on unlocking lost productivity in your organisation through strategic vision, unique perspective, authentic leadership, and positive culture and mindset, creating sustained business value. We help leaders to transform businesses from the inside out and lead through change.

We differentiate ourselves from our competitors because the tried and tested changeosity philosophy is to be curious, collaborative, courageous, and caring. This creates abundant growth and prosperity for your people and your organisation.

We’ve worked hard to combine large company capabilities and governance, with small company adaptability and approachability. Krysta has been instrumental in leading the company set up, brand development, marketing programs and finance and accounting capabilities… 

Our Growth Model

We are proud of how quickly we have established a comprehensive business model from branding to marketing, and sales to customer nurturing.

We have adopted automation through the careful selection of integrated technology. We believe it is helping us to project a strong brand on a tight budget.

Our Start-up Timeline

In just six months we have leveraged our existing skills and worked to establish a comprehensive governance platform, with a clear strategic plan, solid legal framework, strong financial management and control, operational excellence and outstanding people and culture practices. We have challenged ourselves to learn new skills in content driven marketing, sales funnel expertise and IT prowess. Our commitment to leveraging automation and technology is enabling us to achieve high levels of productivity with high scaleability.

Future of Work: 5 Top Tips for Remote Working

There are costs and benefits to working from home. The daily routine of getting up and going to the office, can help some overcome bouts of temporary inertia for work. However, the uncertainty of an unstructured day of home-based working, especially if there are children around, can be a stressful challenge.

Future of Work: 5 Top Tips to Leading Teams Remotely

When Leading through Change in challenging times, what matters is not what you do, but rather, how you do it. Time and again, leaders are drawn into the trap of focusing on ultimate outcomes rather the process of truly engaging and empowering people to deliver purpose-led change for the organisation.

Challenging Times – The questions boards should ask

In challenging times, it’s incumbent on you as a board member to ask the right questions. Experience from past events such as the global financial crisis has told us that businesses that stay calm, run scenario analysis and take early decisions emerge stronger from troubled times. As Boardroom Coaches, changeosity guides senior leaders on the seven key areas… #leadingchange #leadership #boardroomeffectiveness

Lead in the Time of COVID-19

This is not the time for command and control leadership. Autocratic decision-making may help you immediately cope with COVID-19 emergency measures. But now, more than ever, we believe that leadership the changeosity way, will achieve sustainable growth for your business as it moves to the Future of Work. #leadingchange #leadership #businesstransformation

Collaborate to create great strategy

We’ve learnt so much from helping companies to build new growth strategies. Number one is bringing more people into the room, giving them freedom to brainstorm and democratising the decision making process.

Building a one page strategy house

CHANGEOSITY LEADERSHIP (Leading through change)

an education program that teaches leaders what they absolutely must do, what they could do, and what they should never do. It’s a conscious choice to be a changeosity leader.

REFRESH STRATEGY

an intensive program for deeply reviewing the direction of your business, identifying your options and carefully selecting the initiatives that will get you to achieve your visionary growth.

Redesign Organisation & Culture

an approach that reveals the structure, culture and people problems and delivers innovative solutions to retain top talent, leverage human capabilities and achieve your strategic goals.

RESHAPE SUSTAINABILITY

we help leaders to embed the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals in your organisation. Our program helps you achieve sustainable business growth by taking international regulatory and compliance best practices and applying them in a local context.

BOARDROOM COACHING

we work with your board to help improve their effectiveness. We start by identifying areas for improvement including strategy, decision making, communication and accountability.

C-LEVEL WOMEN

a comprehensive leadership and personal brand development program that focusses on women in leadership. We explore what you want, what you value, what’s holding you back and how to reach your aspirational goals.

We believe that changeosity should be adaptable and scaleable. That belief has been tested and we think we’re winning.

Manal Al Soori

Head of HR Transformation, Emirates Group

Build Your Leadership Brand is a totally brilliant course. It has changed both my work and personal life in such a positive way already. I have been able to employ the skills and tips I learnt, with great results almost immediately. This course was very insightful and the group attending were of very strong leadership backgrounds and the discussions were very healthy and gave a depth of knowledge and experience. The experience with changeosity from start to finish was faultless. changeosity is transforming leaders and re-energising them to go back to their workplace bold & strong. I have recommended the course to my colleagues and my executive leadership. 

We’ve pivoted rapidly during lock down using the time to learn, develop solutions,  and digitise. We’re proud that the business continues to grow…

Thank you for your consideration
