Full Name: Khauhelo Kennedy Mofokeng
Position: OIM Consulting, Business Improvement Analyst
What contribution do you see yourself making to the Young Professionals Council and the SAIMM?:
I am willing to contribute towards the growth and development of SAIMM YPC, specifically on a varsity level. I strongly believe that expanding the organization's presence within educational institutions is crucial for fostering the importance of metallurgical and mining engineering.
In 2019, I had the opportunity to work with Kodwana Band to initiate meetings with the varsity and the Head of Department (HOD) to establish a relationship between VUT (Vaal University of Technology) and YPC. This endeavour aimed to create awareness and understanding of the significance of metallurgy within the academic community.
Given my previous experience in establishing connections with educational institutions, my primary contribution would involve fostering relationships on a varsity level. By engaging with students, faculty, and relevant stakeholders, I will strive to ensure that the importance of metallurgy and its association with SAIMM YPC are recognized and understood.
I am eager to collaborate with SAIMM YPC to organize events, workshops, and presentations at the varsity level, thereby creating a platform for knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. By actively engaging with students and promoting the field of metallurgy, we can inspire young minds to pursue careers in this industry and strengthen the impact of SAIMM YPC within the academic sphere.
I am excited about the potential growth and future prospects of SAIMM YPC, and I am committed to making valuable contributions to support its objectives on a varsity level.
