John Tibane - Business and Motivational Speaker - Pretoria

John Mvuselelo Tibane was born on 23 March 1963 in Komatipoort, a little town on the border of South Africa and Mozambique. He is the first born in a family of three children. He is a Shangaan boy who grew up in a Swazi Village called Kwa-Lugedlane and attended a Zulu school. At the age of 12, he experienced parental separation when his father left him and his little brother and sister, and his sickly mother. His mother worked on a farm despite her ill-health and died when John was 17 years old. She died of Cholera.

By God's grace, John and his siblings found care from their uncle who regarded them as his own children. Thanks also to Mrs Mtshali and the late Mr Mtshali who took over financial responsibility for John's schooling in the last two grades at High School, and first year fees at Medical School.

John managed to go through medical schooling at MEDUNSA [Medical University of Southern Africa]. He qualified in 1989 and did his Internship at Ga-Rankuwa Hospital. He later obtained a Diploma in Business Management and Executive Development through Damelin Management School.

Following completion of his internship he started a Medical Practice in Mamelodi, a township east of Pretoria, in 1991. He developed the practice into a Medical Centre that saw him hiring another Medical Doctor to assist him in attending to about 100 patients a day. The centre also housed a Radiographer, a Dentist, a Physiotherapist and an Optometrist.

Whilst practising as a Medical Doctor, John showed signs of entrepreneurship as he began to expand his centre into a complex that housed a butchery that he owned, which later became a supermarket that he also owned. The same complex also had a number of rooms that he rented out to tenants. This stimulated him to study Business Management in 1996 as he prepared to exit Medical Practice.

At the end of 1996 Dr Tibane made a dramatic change. Mentally prepared by having studied Business Management he was still in Medical Practice, he moved into motivational speaking and management consulting. He spent two years submitting to his mentor, Dr David Molapo, of the I CAN Foundation. After the two year mentorship contract ended, he started his own consulting firm in 1997 with his wife Ruth. This firm, Tibane Consulting Services, has grown to be an organization that reaches out to individuals and businesses with exhortation, encouragement, enlightenment and enablement. Dr Tibane has grown to be a noted author, a high-rated speaker and a veteran executive coach and a leadership consultant.

Dr Tibane has become an idea-maker in his country and abroad. Speaking in conferences, churches, radio and television, as well as communicating through his cutting-edge books and audio programmes, Dr Tibane has become a house-hold name in South Africa.

Dr Tibane is married to an awesome woman, Ruth who co-founded Tibane Consulting. They are blessed with three champion sons, Ntsako, Mohau and Mfumo. They reside in Pretoria, South Africa. Whilst he travels extensively for his business activities, small things such as taking his kids to school and sharing a meal with his family, are the things that inspire him most.

Dr Tibane know that his sufficiency is not of his own, but it is from God who has given him the grace and the favour. He believes that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. He believes that God makes all things to work together for good for him. God is the author and the finisher of his faith and purpose.
