MASTERCLASS: Bernard Swanepoel: A rational view of South Africa – for today and tomorrow.

Bernard Swanepoel is at the peak of his powers, a highly successful business leader who has himself transitioned into entrepreneurship after building Harmony Gold from a single low grade shaft into a global player.
