Bokang is a stellar illustration of aligning passion with purpose. With a heart for developing people, one easily connects and can relate to him. Humble beginnings were never a deterrent in his journey to all he’s achieving and his life is testament to this. By the age of thirty, Bokang had already achieved notable accolades within both an academic and professional capacity. While drawing inspiration from many such as himself; he has managed to craft himself while maintaining his uniqueness. Although he was making a positive contribution and impacting many within the corporate space and industry; a desire to do more resonated within Bokang. It is in this time that an exit strategy was planned and executed over two years. A thought leader in his own right, he is the epitome of the novaturient transition. When Bokang puts his mind to something, he follows it through. Having run a full marathon with only nine months of training, without prior running experience-Bokang uses this journey as a demonstration of the power of a decision. His role is to shift mindsets and inspire new life in demotivated individuals and teams. From a learner miner to a mine manager with an MBA at thirty, he has acquired traits found in high performance teams that achieve more with less versus those continually increasing the cost of downtime.
I am a Mining Engineer that has worked in both underground and Open Cast mines. I have also led a couple of projects and has been part of the team leading a multi-billion Rand project, getting it approved from the feasibility study to the execution.
