Tebogo Mekgoe is currently the Director of Orenda Advisory & Strategy, a management consulting firm that focuses on strategy and organisational effectiveness for growing medium size businesses; and he is adjunct faculty at Henley Business School Africa.Mekgoe has a passion for holistic thinking, using the tools he teaches to make the complex simple and comprehensible to ensure his clients and students get the skills to define their purpose and reach their full potential.

In shifting their Purpose statements towards a focus on impact and shared value, businesses have come a long way from ‘externalising’ anything beyond their bottom line. Translating that shift into transforming how businesses show up is however predictably challenging, but is necessary given how societies are starting to view business success through an impact lens that goes beyond profits.
