More about me

Who I am

I consider myself as a window, in fact a very tiny window, that always opens when the doors have all been closed. In my career, I have the following 3 words as my motto and guiding principles: Discipline, Concentration, and Balance. While working I give great care to teamwork and personal privacy. 

Considering myself as a “traditional man” in a modern world, I have a very “black and white” view of the world, with a very little room for “gray.” My view of the world is that if I decide it’s the right thing to do, everyone should then agree with me.

David Muanda

I have an education in Financial Modeling & Valuation Analyst (FMVA) from the Corporate Finance Institute (CFI) and a bachelor’s degree of science in Applied Business Management from the University Brigham Young-Idaho (BYUI). I equally hold a certificate in Mapping and Visual Representation from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) and the World Health Organization (WHO). As a native French speaker, I have been certified as an Advanced High English Speaker by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).

My professional experience and overall life background include launching and managing startups, mentoring and coaching, as well as a very brief banking career in my home country of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As a young man (in 2018), I served a 2-year voluntary full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Republic of Kenya.

I have previously worked as the Head of the Executive Training Department and the Human Resource Manager & Business Partner before my promotion and nomination (in May 6, 2022) as the Chief Executive Officer of Friendina College, a company that I co-founded.

Today, I provide business advisory and consulting services to people and companies who are interested in outsourcing and/or expanding their businesses in Africa. I invest in education, agriculture, real estate, finance, and philanthropy (with my Muanda Foundation). My passion for transmitting knowledge and caring for others are the driving engine behind my corporate success.

Among the topics I passionately talk about we have:

Investments and Partnerships 91%
The Future of Work 78%
Corporate Culture 86%

“Do not try to stuff a turkey through the beak! Do not attempt to force anyone into the mold of your own making! Instead, be patient enough to see other people truly change rather than depicting them as who you think they really are.”

Why working with me?

All my clients have been provided a significant return on investment by enhancing efficiency, driving growth, and improving their overall business performance. I offer numerous advantages for businesses of all sizes and in various stages of development.

I bring specialized knowledge and extensive experience from working with various companies across different industries. And this allows me to provide you valuable insights and best practices that suit your needs.

I conduct thorough market research and analysis to help businesses understand their competitive landscape, customer needs, and market trends. This information is crucial for making informed decisions and staying ahead of the competition.

As an external entity, I offer an unbiased, objective view of your business. I identify issues and opportunities that might be overlooked by internal staff who are too close to daily operations.

By handling specific projects or tasks, I free up time for business owners and managers to focus on core activities and strategic priorities.

I have an extensive network and I use it to facilitate valuable connections with potential partners, clients, or other stakeholders that can benefit your business.

I introduce fresh ideas and innovative approaches that can help your business stay competitive and adapt to changing market conditions.

I will help your business stay focused on its goals and hold you and your staff accountable for achieving them. I will track progress and provide regular updates on the implementation of your recommendations.

I assist in developing strategic plans that align with your business goals. I set realistic objectives, create actionable plans, and establish key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure progress.

When facing specific challenges, I provide targeted solutions. Whether it’s financial difficulties, operational inefficiencies, or marketing challenges, I devise and implement effective strategies to address these problems.

I help optimize the use of resources, be it financial, human, or technological. This will lead to cost savings, improved efficiency, and better allocation of resources to critical areas.

During periods of significant change, such as mergers, acquisitions, or restructuring, I provide the necessary support and guidance to ensure a smooth transition. I also help manage resistance to change among employees.

I provide training and development programs for employees, helping to enhance their skills and knowledge. This will lead to improved performance and productivity across the organization.
