Speaker Lineup

Conversation #4


Returning from Australia to her native South Africa to step into the role of Anglo American Platinum CEO in April 2020, Natascha has taken the helm of one of the world’s most prominent platinum miners.

Handed the considerable challenge of leading a company with a vast underground workforce operating in confined spaces through the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic, she draws on her 28 years of operational experience from across the mining industry.

Among her experience is six years at Lonmin, where, as Executive Vice President of Processing, she experienced perhaps one of her most profound professional challenges during the Marikana Mine incident. She continues to draw on the learnings from this today.

A highly accomplished metallurgical engineer who grew up in a North West mining town, Natascha also sits on the Anglo American Platinum Board and the Group Management Committee of Anglo American plc. Prior to this, she spent six years as Group Head of Processing for Anglo American.

Natascha holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree from North-West University – as one of only eleven women in her class - and an Executive Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Cape Town.

Conversation #2

She is also the founder and CEO of BlackFem, Inc., a nonprofit with a mission to transform school-based learning so that girls of colour in underserved communities are empowered with skills, habits, and resources to build and sustain wealth.

Chloe is known for fighting wealth inequality with her fierce yet down-to-earth and humorous approach to financial literacy. Her mission is to empower historically marginalised people to take financial control of their lives. Her ultimate goal is to revolutionise the financial services industry and education system.

Women in focus: Conversation #1


Caster Semenya is an Olympic gold medallist and a South African icon of resilience and prevailing against staggering odds. She is a woman whose dedication to her craft and self-belief have powered her to the top of the international middle-distance running rankings, having a profound influence on a generation of budding young South African athletes.

Outside of the athletics arena, her authenticity, compassion and determination serve as an inspiration to all. This is especially true in the time of Covid-19, when we need, more than ever, to find the courage to rise above our individual circumstances.

Why You Should
Join Us

For the past 15 years, Talking Investments has been our annual thought-leadership conference, offering Coronation’s clients the opportunity to network and listen to preeminent global experts across a diversity of fields. Despite the challenges presented by prolonged social distancing, we have kept the spirit of this popular event alive by converting it into a series of virtual discussions to be held over the next six months. A noteworthy difference is that our in-person events were by invitation only, while the Talking Investments webinar series is open to all registered guests.

Topical conversations will provide valuable insights into many of the key issues we are facing today – both locally and globally.

We will highlight extraordinary people, their incredible stories and how they positively impact our society. Our aim is to stay connected, and to keep sharing knowledge and experiences that will inspire and uplift us all in this disrupted time.
