Consulting Engineers South Africa’s (CESA) newly appointed President, Neresh Pather, presented his presidential message and theme for the year at a function held in Johannesburg at the beginning of the year. Pather’s focus for the 2018 will be on Effective Ethical Leadership with the theme of ‘Our Future is Now! He stated that change can be effected if we believe in it and work hard enough to achieve it and that with great leadership we can succeed!

CESA focuses on effective ethical leadershipPather began his presentation by stating, “The world of the future can only be changed and facilitated through the leadership of today embracing the true purpose of service to humanity”. During the year Pather will be focusing on the following key objectives: Effective Ethical Leadership most importantly creating role models that inspire our future generations; Transformation efforts in changing people’s hearts and minds; Embracing the 4th industrial revolution, the new world of digitization and new ways of doing things through innovation and data informed techniques; Industry integration and working collaboratively on common issues that benefit industry and society; and Working with industry clients in addressing Corruption, Governance, and Client leadership.

Pather stated, “We need to ensure that all South Africans and Africans are given a fair chance to further their contribution to our continent. We need to allow for practices to address the imbalance of the past for this will take many, many years to address”. Planned programmes of employment creation, skills development and encouraging trade relations with our neighbours, developed and emerging countries should be accelerated. Within South Africa he believes that we need to encourage the black empowerment principle not as a means of compliance but to truly develop African industrialists to grow our economy. As part of our transformation drive we need to embrace both youth and gender equality so that we ensure the conversation on our future includes all participants. This is the only way we will be able to design a future that is relevant and inclusive.
