Daveneet Bakhshi

Born in Kenya and raised in Zambia, Davey is an avid traveler having studied and worked in over half a dozen countries as far a field from Hong Kong to Switzerland. Brought up in the heart of Africa and instilled with the spirit of adventure by both his Sikh heritage and by his parents, Davey has backpacked through Alaska, the Alps, China, Iceland, the Himalayas and Scotland. These experiences have allowed Davey to bring out his wacky sense of adventure and imagination through his latest book - The Stoney Rock Mounties - www.stoneyrock.com 

Professionally, with a foundation as a Derivatives Trader within various International Investment Banks and having consulted and served as a member of the executive board of directorates for a number of small to large corporations in a diverse array of countries (as far a field as Hong Kong, Finland, Switzerland to the UK), Davey brings to the table both cross functional and cross industrial experience (from Corporate Finance, Private Equity to Bio Technology, IT and Industrial Production). 

Davey's experiences in, amongst other areas, corporate development, organizational consolidation and turnarounds have provided him with the ability to learn, understand and acclimate to any business environment and effectively and efficiently lead and analyze business models to provide guidance for sustainable growth for enhanced shareholder value. Davey is a member of the National Association of Corporate Director's (NACD) in the US and a former member of the Institute of Directors (IOD) in the UK.
