Kilimanjaro’s Managing Director, Ronnie Baskind was interviewed earlier this month and has been featured on “Talking Business with Alan Kohler”, one of Qantas’ most popular InFlight radio channels. Alan’s show focuses on business news and financial commentary and is broadcast on every domestic and international Qantas flight.
Ronnie’s story is unique, and his business knowledge stems from his foundations as a farmer in South Africa. Today, Ronnie manages over 50 employees and 500 client sites and uses elements of traditional African leadership to guide the Kilimanjaro tribe as the premier specialist implementers of MYOB Enterprise Solutions.
The interview covers Ronnie’s early farming days in South Africa right through to the creation of Kilimanjaro Consulting. Ronnie describes his passion for strategy and business planning and his completion of an MBA. He talks about the knowledge gleaned from traditional African communities and how these have influenced Kilimanjaro’s commitment to working as a “farmer not a hunter”. This translates to long-term, nurtured relationships built on trust and guidance.
