In order to be a leader in the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment space, one needs experience, understanding, commitment, and, most importantly, belief. As the Founder and CEO of Lanham-Love Consulting and The LLC Academy, I truly believe in the principles and goals of B-BBEE, and am determined to continue to be a part of the South African Project of creating a world class economy.
When it comes to experience with B-BBEE, I have been involved with the process for almost as long as the South African Government has been pursuing the project. The Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act was introduced in 2003, and I have been consulting in B-BBEE strategy development and implementation since 2004. My experience is across all the pillars of B-BBEE in various sector charters, from strategy formulation to implementation, including ownership design, structure, and implementation.
I love being part of the strategic heart and soul of Lanham-Love Consulting. LLC take immense pride in providing relevant, meaningful B-BBEE solutions to the South African business landscape, based upon our wealth of experience in the industry. And with this extensive experience has come a genuine understanding of what B-BBEE, when implemented correctly, can achieve. It is not about taking away opportunities, it is not about sacrificing one segment of the population’s future for another’s. B-BBEE is about providing a better life for everyone; it is about ensuring that the future of South Africa is one that is cohesive and bright, filled with opportunity for all.
If each and every South African is committed to what we call “The South African Project”, I believe that we will quickly become a competitive force in the global economy. As a whole, South Africans are resourceful, quick-witted, and capable of amazing things. This commitment is a vital aspect of being a B-BBEE leader, much like being any kind of leader, and I believe that this commitment stems from a desire to develop people and businesses for the betterment of all.
I have worked the majority of my career in helping businesses understand and implement B-BBEE to the advantage of all involved. That is why I consider LLC to be a leader in this space – we know what it takes to make B-BBEE work across the board. And I sincerely hope that our passion for B-BBEE serves as an inspiration to others.
If you see the value of B-BBEE, and want to become improved in this space, speak to the experts at Lanham-Love Consulting. We live and breathe B-BBEE and believe that this solution requires a strategic approach throughout the business and economic architecture of South Africa.
