Sehlare Sa Meetlwa is formalised through the strategic partnership between VBKOM and Aiko Projects and Consultants. The partnership symbolises the rich cultural diversity of the Mining Industry, together with a strongly rooted history of economic growth and cultural collaboration in which a common goal of service delivery and client satisfaction is embedded.
ProjectPro forms part of the VBKOM Group of companies. ProjectPro is a project management training and consulting organisation that offers accredited project management services and training solutions to project management- and engineering professionals.
I come from the Karoo but grew up in Port Elizabeth. By grace, I received the opportunity to study in Pretoria and as an undergraduate, I studied Agricultural Engineering whilst sharing subjects and classes with my Mining Engineering colleagues. Unbeknownst, but this trivial aspect would lead to me joining VBKOM 13 years later. As a postgraduate I never actually applied myself in the agriculture sector as my Master’s dissertation opened the door for me to enter into the world of consulting & strategy. It was at that time during a brief lapse of concentration that I enrolled in a postgraduate diploma in Taxation at Wits, where I proved to the rest of the lawyers in class that willpower trumps intelligence!
My interest in Enterprise Risk Management and Project Management evolved whilst I was consulting to the Regulatory and Credit Risk divisions of Absa Bank, and implementing Credit Rating Systems for Commercial and Business Banking. It was only after 8 years in the corporate world that I came full circle to rejoin my mining colleagues at VBKOM.
My StrengthsFinder results corroborate that I am a perpetual optimist who loves to pull people into the conversation by sharing ideas about future possibilities. I am an early riser with a passion for leadership, learning, and growing people. I have a weakness for hot-cross buns, and enjoy listening to almost all types of music, as long as it is loud.
My wife and three children come first, followed closely by a good red wine, freshly baked bread and photography.
