Additional Information
As per above.

All my university qualification have been achieved "cum laude", meaning with distinction / honours, as can be seen from the supported documents attached. This includes two MSc degrees and two 'propedeutical' first years degrees (something typical of the old university system in the Netherlands - no real SA or British equivalent). The requirements for obtaining these degrees 'with honours' in the Netherlands are quite strict, so should hopefully contribute to demonstrating my analytical capabilities.

After initial working experience in Asia/China and some research work, I have specialized in the renewable energy industry and pursued a business career in this direction. Building from my time at McKinsey I have developed myself for a career in General Manager role in this sector in South Africa. The sector has great prospects in South Africa and I hope to contribute to its growth.
Social/Volunteer Organizations
During studies in the Netherlands, I have been part of a cultural student assocation, promoting arts & culture. In South Africa, I have been supporting a few social initiatives such as Great Girls (an organization that runs a program on job coaching with girls from disadvantaged neighbourhoods, to prepare them for job interviews and working life), as well as IkamvaYouth. Furthermore, I have enlisted in Xhosa courses since being employed at Aurora (at Xhosa Fundis). References can be provided upon request.
