On the 31st of March 2017 Prof Rodney Jones, Immediate past President and Honorary Life Fellow of the SAIMM, delivered a very inspiring address to the graduates of Wits University.

Prof Jones ended his address with the powerful and motivating words of advice for the graduates “You are graduating at a time of great difficulty in the world and in our country – a time of economic hardship and high unemployment. The challenge to your generation is to work to the best of your abilities to enable a world where we all work towards the welfare, safety, and health of all people, and care for our environment. Your success is determined not by the wealth you accumulate, or the position you achieve, but by how well you live your life.

My message to you today can be summed up as learn continuously, and care about others in our world".
