The story of Mashobane Group starts with a unicorn, a unicorn with fire in her soul, who holds Bluris and L.L.B Degrees from the University of Pretoria, a Management Development Programme Qualification (MDP) from the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS/UP), an Aviation Law Diploma from IATA Canada (International Qualification) as well as a Certificate in Editing and Proofreading from the University of Cape town.
This is one eagle/owl who takes what she does very seriously, but doesn’t take herself too seriously. Born out of the desire to DO better and BE better, Anastasia founded Mashobane Advisory Services in 2019,
“I have learnt how to be a good leader from bad leaders. I have learnt how to stand my ground and speak the truth. It doesn’t matter at what cost it comes. I have walked away from high level positions because I was uncomfortable. With all of that knowledge, being a Christian, and believing that I need to always make sure that I can sleep with my conscience at night, I modelled these companies with the values of ethics, integrity, and excellence,”
“I believe that leadership is so much more than just about the individual. It is about uplifting those around me and giving those who need it a chance to show their worth. This is the backstory of how Mashobane Group came about, but this is only the beginning, the best is yet to come.”
Her passion is all encompassing, and it embraces everyone whom she comes across. She wants others to be driven by their passion and purpose, because of this, she has made it her mission to mentor others.

For Anastasia, there are no excuses, only a vision which will stand her, her companies, and all those who are willing to come along for the ride, in good stead.
