MARY-ANNE CALVERT

Nickname: 'Mary-Anne Jacobs or MAC'

Founder and Owner - The Human Element


Currently resides in: Western Cape, South Africa

Born in Pretoria South Africa

My name is Mary-Anne Calvert and I am a passionate developer of people and businesses to help them become the best they can be! I founded The Human Element in 2005 to use my adult education qualifications and business management experience to provide my unique brand of leadership and employee skills development, performance coaching and HR business consulting.

My mission is to provide customized, relevant, and cost-effective solutions that challenge people out of their comfort zones, into new ways of thinking that helps them to do a better job. I form strategic working partnerships with my clients that emphasize agility, change and innovation – everything a business must be to thrive in this economy.

In my twelfth year in business I can confidently say that I am good at what I do, and I invite you to browse the client feedback on my website and LinkedIn profile to see what they are saying about me.
