Introducing our Industry Advisory Board’s Chairperson, Ms Nomathamsanqa Magele, CEO and Founder – Lit To Stand and Leungo Education. Proud mother. Change Manager & advocate for skills and knowledge transfer. a UJ Alumni. 

Nomathamsanqa, affectionately referred to as Thami is a powerhouse of a woman who grew up in a single mother-led household and was thus forced early on to become a co-head of the house and was mature beyond her years. She has a high-performing, though down-to-earth, daughter who reflects Thami’s values of retaining and restoring human dignity to every person with whom she interacts.  

As a professional, Thami has developed herself as a leadership practitioner who uses her coaching, technology, project management and problem-solving skills to lead teams dealing with complexity and change management. As she writes about herself, “In my theatre of life, I have played and still play many roles as a woman and mother in Africa, the world, corporate South Africa, the community, home and in the hearts of those I have become close to.” She brings to each role she plays a distinctive love for life, ambition to achieve and a duty to uplift.   

What stitches together her body of work is her faith in the ability of all the people she leads or works with. This faith in colleagues’ untapped talent is coupled with her unmatched ability to help others unlock their potential. With these two gifts, Thami has built a track record as a remarkably efficient change manager, visionary and strategic leader who just happens to be a woman. 

IKM acknowledges and celebrates Ms Nomathamsanqa Magele, a powerhouse of a woman.
