Robert Walker is the director of Jukwaa, which manages projects such as the Sasol Solar Challenge and E-mobility Congress of South Africa.
His primary role in the company is the conceptualisation of large-scale strategic events. Through his work, he strives to become market-leading, set new standards for the sector and speed up the change towards sustainable mobility.
His proudest moment will always be the birth of his two sons, and he believes our youth have the potential to become world leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). He hopes to see young South Africans “believe in a future which is clean, green and driven by STEM”.
Walker sees every day as a challenge, with his family driving him to find solutions to the seemingly impossible, but he also knows the power of learning from your mistakes. His motto is: “Don’t take failures too personally; learn from them and grow.”
“Learn to scratch the surface and not take every opportunity, no matter how good it may seem.”
