A solution-broker: Meet the unblocker of bureauracy in South Africa

In conversation with Rudi Dicks, Creative Bureaucracy Award Winner 2020

From student and labour activist to the heart of government and helping there to get things complex things done. Rudi helped organize the South African Jobs Summit, he ushered the grant systems through the public administration in the Covid crisis, he brought the private sector partners together to strengthen broadband capacity. And much more. All of this happened at speed so how did Rudi do this?  Negotiating skills, diplomacy, emotional intelligence and a sense of humour. A lesson for all of us.
