Your lead in keeping focused, making it simple and fun was natural. That got engagement from all in the project teams and delivered results in a timely manner.

I met Riaan on a learning mission to Japan to study the Toyota Production System via the Honsha consulting group. I found Riaan to be a gregarious leader who was the perfect fit to lead a culture transformation. He has a deep understanding the philosophy and the tools of TPS. He has the passion for continuous improvement, but best of all he has the personality to provide confidence and a sense of humor to lead people to want to transform. Everyone enjoys being around Riaan.

Riaan has proven his desire to learn and apply Lean. I had the privilege to spend a week with Riaan in Japan as part of the Honsha Japan Executive Development Mission. Riaan demonstrated the humility necessary to learn and contributed to the group with his key insights. It was a pleasure to spend time with him.

I first met Riaan in 1997 whilst studying Engineering together, where he was a driven and ambitious student. His hands-on industry experience has provided him with a solid foundation and ultimately set him up to work with some of the world’s most respected companies. Riaan’s constant search for improvement has been evident since his days as a student, and this passion has followed him through his various professional roles. His logical approach to life and work makes him a trusted advisor, whilst his experience and knowledge ensures that he will overcome any challenge laid down before him.

Riaan’s unique approach to creating simplicity and elegance from complex situations is highly effective and contagious within an organization. He has a particular depth of knowledge and skill in caring for the people involved in improvement and change – knowing how to create sustainable practices that are embraced, owned and enjoyed by those in the process is key to sustainable results. Riaan is a man of action, gets immediately involved with individuals and teams at every level of organizations with ease bringing the fun and exciting aspects of Continuous Improvement to life. Riaan’s curiosity and strong desire to solve problems and seize opportunities inspires others to learn new things, to try new ideas and to continually strive for greater results.

I was lucky enough to work in a Brewery with Riaan – That’s two bonuses!
Riaan learned the brewing process far quicker than his peers due to his passion for beer, but more importantly his drive to understand where optimization opportunities were – these included loss elimination, throughput improvement by improved process engineering and quality first time right saving time, cost and energy.
Clearly this was just the start to his passion of Lean Manufacturing and his Black Belt wisdom.

I would certainly recommend Riaan to any manufacturing company that is looking to run leaner, improve margin and make higher quality products.

Craig Groeneveld

Director at Master Brewer Consulting PTY (Ltd)

Riaan is the one who made me interested in Lean, he is great in understanding processes and creating customised lean solution to bring real improvements.
He presents Lean in a very simplified manner so that it get absorbed easily by all levels of employees from different area of expertise.
Being a technical manager it was nit easy to accept lean philosophy, but Riaan could do this to me, where i could relate Lean principles to very easy to very complex topics.
