ANTHONY DOUGLAS JONES
Anthony understands every aspect of wholesale business, having mentored countless retailers and their staff on the fundamentals of selling and the importance of customer engagements.
Anthony developed the course content for ‘The Sales Class Master Series’ which is educ8.AFRICA’s opening act – a six part retail sales course offering candidates in-depth insight into the art of customer retention during face to face selling.
Having spent decades as a forerunner in the mosaic tile import industry of South Africa, Anthony intends focusing a large portion of his time developing educ8.AFRICA into a far reaching platform.

Ryan carries with him a rich history in communications and conceptualizes events for leading global brands.

Gavin’s background in online education and
e-commerce has led to a natural progression into educ8.AFRICA. He has extensive business experience in tech StartUps in the field of SaaS, developing the Ask Archie Education progressive web APP (STEM focus in Mathematics and Physical Science) with ‘data free’ capabilities, custom built to empower and upskill South African High School teachers and learners.
Based in Europe, Gavin is set on expanding the course content for the whole African continent, and growing an international audience for the brand by building long standing relationships with sponsors, donors and like minded partners.
