Creativity and Business Turn Around
This session is a practical demonstration of how creativity can be utilised to improve operational performance. Real business scenarios are shared as well as time-tested methodologies and concepts that can be applied to re-think and manage a business.
In this presentation, Johan shares his roller-coaster experience as the former CEO of the troubled Evras Highveld Steel and Vanadium, one of SA’s largest steelmaking companies. This is a real-life industrial example of practical creative problem-solving and the tenacity of a small team of ordinary but committed people.
The presenters are acknowledged leaders in the heavy engineering and mining industries, with extensive business improvement experience.
Johan Burger is an electrical engineer with broad operational experience in the mining, agricultural steel and heavy engineering industries and served on the boards of numerous local and international companies. He has interests in a number of businesses and other ventures.
Johan will be co-presenting with two of his valued colleagues, Andrew Maralack and Derek Pienaar.
