Project Manager


In 1989, I joined the financial sector, where I gained 12 years of experience of dealing with the public directly as well as indirectly, then united with Eskom in June 2001, where I worked in the project field from June 2002. I was accountable for carrying out a project from execution phase to close out, assisting in the pre-execution planning of the projects.

Having have completed my Project Management Diploma in December 2005 and becoming a member of the International Project Management Institute, on 08 October 2008, and being awarded 1st runner up for safety in Eskom Transmission, I am now seeking new challenges in the in a different field which effectively utilizes my professional experience and at the same time gaining first hand skills in a different environment, using my analytical skills and commitment to perform quality work.

My biggest achievement was the co-ordination of launch of the institute on the 27 January 2011, which was inaugurated by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. This entailed communicating between various stakeholders, verbally and written, from the Presidential office to scholars.

I'm a firm believer in learning from adversity and lead by example, just the way I want others to conduct themselves.
