The events that occurred at Lonmin preceding and following 16 August 2012 highlighted a cataclysmic moment in the history of mining. The significance of these events reverberated and will continue to reverberate across the South African industrial relations landscape.
A deeper understanding of what was at play is critical for all thought leaders intent on steering their organisations through the challenging waters of leading a business in South Africa post-Marikana. Can you afford not to understand the challenges of leading a business at times of cataclysmic change?
Can you afford not to view the Marikana-story from multiple perspectives? Can you afford not to explore the lessons learnt and gear your organisational leadership for the challenges that may be staring you in the face?
You are invited to an event hosted by Schuitema Associates that seeks to present an alternative perspective on what is popularly referenced as the Marikana Massacre or the Marikana Tragedy.
The popular narrative highlights strained industrial relations, contestation by unions, failed public order policing methods, the socio-economic impact of migrant labour and the corporate quest for profit at the expense of people; the loss of human life and the ongoing cry for redress following the publication of the Farlam report.
What is this alternative, largely unrecorded, narrative that co-existed with the popular narrative? What was is it like to lead a business organisation at a time when things appeared to fall apart? What are the unique outcomes related to this period? What are the leadership lessons learnt in the eye of the storm?
Join us in a thought-provoking symposium and hear first hand from two thought leaders in conversation
