Jannie Heneyke - DigitalCampus

Jannie Heyneke: Operations Executive & Junior Partner

Jannie is passionate about people development and helping individuals and organisations develop themselves to reach their full potential.

Jannie has a Diploma in Hotel and Catering Management and various certificates from the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute. His career started out in hospitality management, a multidisciplinary field that married his love of business and working with people. It was this keen business instinct that saw Jannie’s early career flourish, leading him to LRMG in April 2008.

Jannie joined the Group Strategy team as a Junior Consultant, where he quickly proved his worth running the Group’s surveys, collecting and analysing the data, ROE reporting and impact measures. In 2009, Jannie joined the LRx team where he spread his consulting wings and was also responsible for the operational management of the Group’s Design Studio, analytics, culture and employee engagement surveys, financial management, project management, BU operations and ISO audits.

Over the years, and in his various roles, Jannie has cemented his status as a real team player, an irreplaceable jack-of-all-trades. It’s little wonder that he is appreciated by his colleagues for his energy, dynamism, willingness to take on everything assigned to him and more, and his incredible attention to detail. Jannie’s hard work, dedication, loyalty and can-do attitude are admired and valued by his colleagues and his vital contribution makes his team a force to be reckoned with. Thus, it was no surprise when Jannie was invited to become a Junior Partner at LRMG in 2014, and the head of LRMG’s new learning venture, DigitalCampus, in 2015. In the words of Natalie Maroun, LRMG’s Managing Director, “While there is much to celebrate about what makes Jannie so special, the aspects that stand out for me are his ability to not only do everything and anything that you assign to him (the breadth and depth of Jannie’s capability are astounding), but also his willingness to do whatever it takes. He is the ‘go to’ person, the person you can hand anything over to and know without a shadow of a doubt that no ball will ever get dropped and the task will be completed no matter the effort.”

Jannie’s latest role sees him fulfil his passion for people and growing them to their full potential. As Operations Executive of DigitalCampus, he’s excited about and proud of the positive impact it can have on people’s lives, and he brings all his passion, energy and get-it-done attitude to taking himself, his learners, and LRMG to greater heights.

In Jannie’s role he manages the day-to-day operations of Wits DigitalCampus and plays a pivotal role in representing Wits DigitalCampus to business and corporate stakeholders in a marketing and sales role. Jannie strives to work constantly with his clients to advise them of the best solutions that will have the greatest impact on the learners’ lives as well as the organisation, thus building long lasting partnerships.

I believe that education is the fundamental right for every human in the world, so being able to be part of a journey to help people develop themselves and refine their skills is really amazing. Personal development is important because it covers activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability. It also enhances the quality of life and contributes to the realization of one’s dreams and aspirations.
