Jannie's business acumen, experience, temperament and personality were ideally suited for this role as he managed the difficult interface between the central Project Consultant demands and Sasol Company employee resistance and scepticism on these new business process designs.
Jannie has a huge capacity for work load and the quality of work produced were of a high standard. combined with this quality was an excellent sense of humour which he used strategically to normalise tensions.

My Testimonial
I was the accountable executive in the Sasol Synfuels EXCO to ensure that effective change management was delivered into our organisation during an integrated SAP installation. As the leader of the change management programme on this project, Jannie du Toit was responsible to prepare the organisation and its people for the substantial changes and look after the change management during implementation. He has proven himself as an excellent change consultant and change manager on this project to the extent that I am convinced that he will be an excellent consultant and resource to facilitate change in an organisation. Not. only does he deeply understand the psychology of change, but he is also an excellent facilitator to help people along their journeys of change and helping them overcome their tumbling blocks on their journeys of change. Being a real peoples person in addition to his tremendous functional knowledge and skills as a change professional, Jannie can work and facilitate change in any environment, context and organisational level

My Testimonial

My name is André Naudé and I was the Customer/Sales Executive for Libstar Operations for 10 years, until the end of 2019. Libstar is a manufacturer and marketer of FMCG products and brands to the retail trade, both in South Africa and internationally. They operate across more than 15 years food, beverage and household cleaning categories. Over the last 3 years, SimpleXity (Pty) Ltd has played a key role as a service provider to a number of our companies across the following areas/projects:

  1. Libstar Group Sales - Facilitated a number of workshops to explore opportunities to synergise customer account functions of 8-10 divisional sales teams into one customer team, aligned with customer service needs.
  2. Montagu Foods - Having agreed a 2022 strategy for Montagu Foods we had to align the organisation structure, all functional disciplines, roles and responsibilities, to the company Vision, Values and Strategy
  3. Hurters Honey - Having agreed a 2022 strategy for Hurters Honey we had to align the organisation structure, all functional disciplines, roles and responsibilities, to the company Vision, Values and Strategy
  4. Cani - Having agreed a 2022 Strategy for Cani we had to align the organisation structure, all functional disciplines, roles and responsibilities to the company Vision, Values and Strategy as well as determine the manning level on the production floor.

Jannie du Toit from SimpleXity did an excellent job on all of the above, both as a facilitator and leading the process, from concept to implementation, at a fraction of the cost of other consultants.

Jannie is very professional and detail-oriented and because of that has managed to succeed in implementing many ideas because he always ensures that he has buy-in from all stakeholders. He was always willing to offer his assistance and had an excellent rapport with many people from the cleaner up to the highest employee in the organisation. He would be an asset to any employer and I recommend him for any endeavour he chooses to pursue.

My Testimonial
According to research, projects fail more often than not due to a lack of proper change management. This is where Jannie steps in. Jannie is the Crocodile Dundee of change management. As experienced during a large international project with numerous stakeholders across different business and geographical boundaries, Jannie will come to the rescue. According to Jannie's own metaphor, crocodiles represent problems below the surface not visible to management. Not seeing them does not mean they are not present in the environment or that they will go away automatically. This is where Jannie excels - trust him to enter the swamp, get rid of the crocodiles and ensuring project success

During my tenor at Shoprite I worked with Jannie du Toit. Jannie is an excellent facilitator who helps firstly ask the difficult questions, and secondly, find our own answers to those tough problems. I can highly recommend Jannie du Toit to anyone who is going through an organisational change, or stuck in a stale work environment where team dynamics are inhibiting optimal performance.

My Testimonial

I was the Food Buying Director for the Shoprite Group from 2011 to 2018. During my tenure Jannie du Toit assisted me with identifying and aligning all work that my department needed to do and he assisted me in designing and delivering on the required structures and operating model. My experience with him can be summarised in the following themes:

  • He did everything with the end in mind
  • He brought clarity and direction to the table
  • He enables us to work better in our defined structures and processes
  • He assisted me in creating a shared mindset and common understanding amongst my leadership

He knows exactly what he is doing and he does it with excellence, delivering in time and on target. I will strongly recommend Jannie to any executive that needs assistance in transforming a business or a department

Jannie led a number of OD interventions that I was part of. He masters strategy planning, formulation and assisting executives and teams in execution. He explains theory in practical terms that stakeholders can understand and feel at ease. He is excellent at stakeholder management and deals with people from all walks of life with respect and has a great sense of humour. Jannie is very professional, delivers as contracted and invests himself in each intervention that you know you can call on him to go over areas you are struggling with time and again. He gives sound advice and has a great insight into human behaviour which is key in his role. Jannie is comfortable having difficult conversations with individuals to ensure barriers are broken down and the end goal is achieved. I have deep respect for Jannie and highly recommend him for strategy related interventions

I have known Jannie Du Toit for many years and worked with him on a number of major transformation projects. Jannie has a unique way of engaging wit key stakeholders. the does so with humour, using quirky metaphors that cuts deeply into the reality of the changes faced. This unique ability, although humorous in nature, makes the difficult subject of change easier to understand and to stomach its impact, in this way deeply and positively impacting stakeholders of the change effort. In other work areas, Jannie displayed a strong propensity to quickly grasp business and other strategic challenges and to design bespoke and fit for purpose solutions. He is a delight to work with, with a wicked sense of humour and an ability to successfully engage with the most difficult stakeholders at all levels in the organisation - from the CEO to the cleaning staff. Jannie comes HIGHLY recommended and I would be willing to answer any questions relating to this remarkable human being.

I have been working closely with Jannie as a consultant on different projects since 2005 and it is a pleasure to recommend him due to his in-depth knowledge of change-, project- and stakeholder management. His personality and total commitment to the task at hand always deliver on commitments whilst aligning and in collaboration with his clients and colleagues. He was easily accepted by top management and employees at lower levels due to his insight and understanding of operational requirements. He continuously impresses with his theoretical understanding and on making it practical in the work environment. He is a pleasure to have on a project team due to his personality to deliver on tight timelines and tough deliverables

Jannie is one of the few real change management experts I have had the privilege to work with. He combines an astute insight into the modern mechanics of the art with a natural aptitude for leading people through challenging changing situations. He builds rapport with innate fervour; people thus trust and really like him. I cannot do justice to the man in words on paper; I just trust that he keeps living his life as the real change guru that he is and keeps on sharing in the positive transformation of all people he encounters.

Whenever one is facing change, your reaction is to freeze, fight or fleeing this is normal human nature. Being a senior manager does not automatically entail being good at designing, implementing and embedding change and this is where you must not be too proud to seek for assistance. This is where you need a facilitator that knows people, knows their fears, knows business management and can deal with people on all levels in the organisation. Jannie is such a facilitator and although you would like to clobber him one moment and then agree with him totally, he will keep you focussed on the job at hand and will ensure the best outcome for the people as well as the business. If you are brave enough....try him! I can really recommend Jannie
