Title and Organization:
Hanno is the COO of Videos for Change - an initiative of High Resolves. Prior to that, as a trustee of the FUEL Trust, he applied principles from change management, behavioural economics and nudge architecture to influence the performance of systems within the South African Department of Basic Education, such as the National School Nutrition Programme, which feeds 9 million students each day. Before joining FUEL, Hanno headed up Twenty30, a skills volunteering organisation that focused on bridging cultural and social divides, especially for young professionals from blue chip companies. With a tagline of "Inspiring South Africans to Action", Twenty30 became a powerful catalyst in skills and employee volunteering. Hanno has worked in quality and education management in a number of tertiary institutions, and was an integral member of the team that migrated the examination and certification of South African actuaries from the UK to South Africa in 2008. He is passionate about challenging racism, inequality and patriarchy. Born and bred in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, Hanno studied Law at Stellenbosch University and Organisational Psychology at the University of Pretoria. He's been married to Linda for 15 years and they have two daughters. Hanno is a Fellow of the ninth class of the Africa Leadership Initiative-South Africa and a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
