Meet Our Presenters



Management Accounting and Financial Management have always been my favourite modules. Both are very practical subjects where every new scenario challenges your problem-solving skills. The only thing I like more than ManAcc itself is teaching it. Whenever that lightbulb goes on in a student, I get goosebumps. I’ve been teaching Management Accounting for nearly a decade at various universities and all levels, and my interest in the subject has not faded. I’ve also been preparing annual financial statements since I did my articles, where a sound knowledge of IFRS is required.

My journey to becoming a CA(SA) was nearly derailed when I wanted to quit halfway through my articles. Looking back, not giving up was the best thing I ever did. Being a CA(SA) really opened doors for me, and allowed me to pursue other interests (like doing the Cape to Cairo on a bike and test-driving fast cars for magazines) while still being able to make a good living. It is a long and hard journey, but it really is worth the ‘pain and suffering’.

Yvonne is one of the founders of Tabaldi, and our teaching methods and student support approach speak very much to her pioneering passion for lecturing so that you lecture the WHOLE student, not just the academic material.

Yvonne has been a lecturer for more than ten years and is incredibly passionate about giving students what they need to get through their studies. She’s taught both Auditing and Financial Accounting face-to-face and online (at undergrad and CTA level), mainly for UNISA students.

Yvonne studied her undergrad and CTA at UNISA as a part-time student, so she really understands the challenges of UNISA students and their needs. She served articles after passing CTA and started lecturing part-time that same year. She moved to full-time auditing lecturing after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant. Yvonne also pursues her own business interests and has her own blog.



Claudia’s love for both teaching and financial accounting have kept her in the world of academia since her second year as an undergraduate student. She started off as an accounting tutor, did academic articles and ultimately landed up back in the classroom as a lecturer. She has lectured cost accounting, corporate finance and financial accounting at both an undergraduate and postgraduate level for almost ten years. It is no secret though, IFRS is her first love.

Claudia has also spent numerous years in practice as an IFRS specialist and advisor working on a broad range of listed and unlisted clients across multiple industries and sectors. She continues to consult as an IFRS advisor and is currently completing her Masters in International Accounting.

As a lecturer Claudia loves sharing her practical experience to bring relevance and life to the subject matter, not to mention that knowledge when shared multiplies! She also is a firm believer that even the most complex transactions and principles can be presented simply, and this is something that remains paramount to her teaching style.

Andre enjoys interacting with students and the challenge to make auditing easier to grasp and understand. That is why he loves teaching auditing.

What better job can there be than to help students achieve their goals and dreams?

Felicia Gaie Booysen is a South African Chartered Accountant and an experienced lecturer in financial accounting.

Faatima is a CA(SA) who has many successful and interesting years working in the profession, both in South Africa and overseas, in specialised areas of financial accounting and auditing. She made the move to academics to pursue her passion for developing others.

She has always had an interest in the development of others and was involved in tutoring and training even before she qualified as a Chartered Accountant, and continued teaching after she qualified. She moved to full-time lecturing a few years ago and obtained a Master’s in Accounting in the process.



My passion, the reason I get out of bed in the morning, is the belief that I can make a difference to people’s lives by helping them to find their own best way through their obstacles – academic and life – to be the best version of themselves that they can possibly be. I have been in the profession for over 20 years now – and every day I love it more. I hope to bring love and respect for Accounting and Auditing out for you too – if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.

On my own journey to CA(SA), I really took the long way around. I studied my undergrad degree part-time, while working, and did my bridging and CTA through correspondence, all while being a manager at work and raising two children and managing a home. It was lonely, and it was rough, but it was mine, it was worth it, and it was proof that perseverance and self-belief WILL get you to your goals.



KC has years of experience as a technical IFRS and IAS expert, was previously a technical partner at RSM South Africa, and subsequently completed multiple independent IFRS and technical engagements for a global body of clients. At RSM he was responsible for keeping professional staff up to date with IFRS developments through training and was also the go-to person within the firm for IFRS-related issues such as technical reviews. His entrepreneurial exploits, including running his own technical consultancy, led him to be recognised as one of the top 35 under the age of 35 accountants by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2015.



Tammy is a mathematics teacher and lecturer. After completing her BEd degree in Mathematics and Psychology at the University of Johannesburg, she went on to do her Honours in Adult and Higher Education, with additional non-degree Honours courses in Set Theory and Abstract Algebra. Although her degrees focused primarily on education and pure mathematics, she landed a junior lecturing post at the University of Johannesburg teaching a subject called Mathematical Applications for Economics and Business. Financial mathematics and statistics soon became her passion, as she moved from tertiary to secondary education and taught high school advanced programme mathematics in these fields.

Tammy regards herself as a “non-mathematical mathematician”. Her schooling career was paved with struggles in maths because the subject did not come naturally to her. She believes that her journey has equipped her to relate to students’ fears when it comes to working with numbers. She is passionate about sharing the tools that not only helped her to love and understand the world of maths, but which she has refined over the years of mentoring students with varying needs.
