Justin Spencer-Young

Justin Spencer-Young calls himself a Valuologist, specialising in value creation.

Justin is the driver of “The Leadership Balance Sheet” which quantifies people on the balance sheet and measures leaders’ ability to create value. Justin calls this a leader’s VQ (value quotient) as opposed to their EQ.

Justin has been teaching corporate finance on the Masters in Business Administration (MBA) programme at Wits Business School for the last 5 years and has been teaching accounting and finance for the last 10 years. His claim to fame is that he is a builder at heart and not an accountant.  He is also an investor and trader who knows where the accountants burry the bodies. His alternative perspective on the world of accounting, finance and investment equips him to be an excellent teacher in the management education field.

Justin holds a BSc in Building Science and MBA from the University of the Witwatersrand and Wits Business School.  He published his Masters research in the South African Journal of Business Management.

Justin works extensively in the private sector in customised executive education. He develops bespoke leadership development and value creation journeys for clients using a mixture of delivery techniques such as integrated thinking and dialogue. His technology in the measurement of VQ largely informs this work.
