I have known Christian (Chris) Mxoliswa Mbekela since the 1980s when he suffered a great deal under the Apartheid Regime.From 1989 to 1990 he worked as a Community Co-ordinator for GADRA Advice division where I was the manager.

Although hampered by the previous education system and much emotional trauma Chris has managed to overcome his set backs in a remarkable way.Academically he has now reached the stage of studying for a PhD.

He has always been concerned for his fellow citizens and has put that into practice by volunteer work and work in the welfare field.His manner is very pleasant and he seems to have many friends and contacts and to be generally in touch with the concerns of others and the needs of various communities.

He also has a good sense of humour which is a great help in any work where people are concerned and in civil society.

Christian (Chris) Mxoliswa Mbekela, is a seasoned, competent and respected leader in human resources and knowledge management issues. Chris has demonstrated his skill in knowledge management and it’s practical application in the South African public sector. He has the expertise to professionally advise organizations on how to gain the competitive advantage that comes with improved or faster learning and new knowledge creation. He further has the strategic insight on how knowledge management programs may lead to greater innovation, better customer experiences, consistency in good practices and knowledge access across organizations, as well as many other benefits, and knowledge management programs may be driven with these goals in mind.
Chris Mbekela’s strategic considerations to drive a knowledge management programme include:

  • making available increased knowledge content in the development and provision of products and services;

  • achieving shorter new product and service development cycles;

  • facilitating and managing organisational innovation;

  • leverage the expertise of people across the organization;

  • Benefiting from 'network effects' as the number of productive connections between employees in the organization increases and the quality of information shared increases;

  • managing the proliferation of data and information in complex business environments and allowing employees to rapidly access useful and relevant knowledge resources and best practice guidelines;

  • facilitate organizational learning;

  • managing intellectual capital and intellectual assets in the workforce (such as the expertise and know-how possessed by key individuals) as individuals retire and new workers are hired;
