Team Zimbabwe - National Director Jessica Nyarayi Tandy
Jessica Nyarayi Tandy is one of three Partners at Bizmod consulting, a women owned management consulting firm based in South Africa. She has played a key role in building this firm from a staff complement of 4 to now 30+ employees.
She studied Information Technology and this was the perfect introduction to the IT industry and business as a whole. She has consulted in industries such as Information Technology, Manufacturing, Health, Telecommunications & Banking and has established a reputation for being formidable and widely respected entrepreneur. Over a decade she has worked for and consulted for various organisations in Africa, UK and USA.
Jessica is a big TED.com follower and has been in the past involved in her personal capacity as a TedxJozi Organiser. On the other hand, she has constantly pursued her passion for social upliftment and is a co-founder of Impacting Real Lives, a non-profit organisation focusing on initiatives that impact grass root development of the Arts and Technology in communities.
It is often said that behind every talented artist is a formidable team or dynamic mother! Hence why the catch phrase the Dynamic Duo rings true when referring to Nontokozo Moyo and Jessica Nyarayi Tandy the Zimbabwe Championships of Performing Arts (ZiCOPA) Co-Founders.
In the past couple of years, they have coordinated, motivated, financed and stopped at nothing to be the driving force behind their budding performing arts daughters. These ladies have selflessly bolstered the creative triumph of others in a culture where being a critic is easier than being a celebrator.
Being nonconformists and high achievers they combined their entrepreneurial skills and passion for the arts to jointly form “African Talent Unearthed - ATU”. “African Talent Unearthed” purpose is to look at the African child and “Acknowledge, Appreciate and Expose” his /her various talents to global platforms that are safe and conducive for positive growth. Accordingly, The World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) were identified as the perfect vehicle for such a vision through its three characteristics of “Quality, True Global Exposure and Experience”
Jessica Nyarayi Tandy is now the sole owner of ATU and WCOPA license holder for Zimbabwe operating under ZiCOPA (Zimbabwe Championship of Performing Arts), a trust registered in Zimbabwe and is an implementation vehicle to drive the set vision aimed at – “Acknowledging, Appreciating, Exposing and Impacting” talented youth performers from Zimbabwe to the world at large. In so doing to influence a performance arts culture that is not limited by lines of longitude and latitude but a global community in which the arts form part of the national narrative.
