Global mover and shaper, BBQ (Black Business Quarterly)
BBQ. Global mover and shaper REFSA Founder, Linda Mabhena-Olagunju, takes us on her journey deep into one of the continent's most progressive energy markets From as early as the age of 10 she has been passionate about Africa and the issues facing the continent. It was this deep passion that drove her educational direction from very early in her life. Founder of the Renewable Energy Forum South Africa, Linda Mabhena-Olagunju, also DLO Energy Resources Managing Director, say she's always been baffled by the question of why we have some of the world's most abundant natural resources, yet we rank among the poorest continents in the world. “When I started my journey I desperately wanted to change this dynamic. At the time I felt studying Law could give me a better understanding and perhaps a means of finding the solution.” Once she had discovered what she believed to be her life's purpose, everything she planned for her future became aligned to it.
