Yumna Tayob
Head of Learning & Development at FNB Bank


A solutionist, transformational leader, keynote speaker, coach & single super-mum.

Yumna loves solving complex problems through collaborative and co-operative strategies and unlocking results. Throughout her career, having worked both in South Africa and abroad, the thrill of overcoming new challenges and applying innovative thinking inspires. A professional work ethic, a can-do attitude and boundless enthusiasm, coupled with a focus on quality and sustainable solutions are a part of her DNA.

Yumna’s steps to success are founded on operational excellence, trusted relationships, ongoing evolution and authentic leadership. Steps she has honed through her 5 years in consulting and 13 years in a financial services corporate; 12 of which at senior management.

This has provided Yumna with a wealth of knowledge, exposure and experience across a vast number of disciplines; learning & development, sales and marketing, customer experience, physical build and infrastructure, vendor management, project management, data analytics and innovation.

Yumna is also the founder of Moments of Pause, a company which brings together Wellness and Strategy. Moments of Pause aims to create and enable safe spaces for companies and individuals to recharge, reflect, reimagine, re-energise and/ or re-invent through coaching, facilitated workshops, retreats and motivational talks.

Yumna’s inspired leadership style extends to her personal life; blessed with three miracles, Yumna’s children are her pillars of strength who motivate her to be the best version of herself– being a good role-model to them defines her true success.
