Joni Peddie

EQ & IQ Specialist | Activation MC | Enneagram expert

For the last 17 years, in various ways Joni has worked as an international speaker with businesses to up-skill managers and leaders in the areas of resilience, IQ, EQ and wellbeing in the workplace.

Do you know if you are playing to your personal strengths and what makes YOU tick differently? In a “time poor” world … do you maximise your EQ: Managing Self and Managing Others? Do you have as much energy at 4pm as you do at 8am? Joni fulfils her life purpose as a human behaviourist working with individuals and corporate teams as a speaker, coach and a straight-talking facilitator. In a world of dynamic complexity, there is a desperate need for self-awareness, agility, and a greater understanding of “what makes others tick”… and most importantly, interpersonal skills-all of which Joni embodies and teaches others.


She is co-founder with Celynn Erasmus of the FAB Quotient™. Together or independently they present “How to boost your FAB Q™?”, a unique Quotient (aligned with IQ and EQ) providing a flexible and pragmatic approach to help people fight fatigue and stay resilient so that they flourish, thrive and live purposefully.

Joni studied Psychology and Marketing paving the way for a great career working for 3 multi-national FMCG Organisations, both locally and internationally. Her zest for people asset management prompted her to start her own business 18 years ago: The BizComm® Group.

In addition, Joni co-founded the Enneagram Institute SA in 2005 (associated with the New York Institute). In the last 7 years, she’s threaded this passion into the “B” of the FAB Quotient™ with Celynn Erasmus (co-founder of the FAB Quotient™).
