Dian Grobler, Operations Manager at Workshop17

The success driven, hard-working, Dian Grobler is the HR and Operations Manager at Workshop17.

He has been gaining work experience from day one after his studies, interning and working for a Human Resource Consultancy company, called LabourNet for seven years. He gained tremendous knowledge regarding the business field in this job. Three years into his position, he was promoted as the regional manager for their West Rand Business which was a huge milestone in Dian’s career!

In 2018, he then joined the Workshop17 team and has been thriving ever since. He is passionate about facilitating, public speaking and training others, making him the ideal fit in our team. He is an inspiration, who aims always to improve and help people reach their full capacity. Living a balanced lifestyle is also the philosophy which he lives by. He is work focussed, but also sees the great importance of being healthy, spending time with those he loves and pursuing his hobbies. Some of his hobbies include playing poker and listening to funky tunes as he was a musician back in high school.

Golf is yet another interest of Dian’s. He loves playing this sport, with the beautiful Cape Town scenery in the background. Table Mountain is one of his favourites destinations alongside the famous Clarke’s Bar and Dining Room on Bree Street. He also enjoys sipping on a gin and eating exceptional seafood at La Mouette in Sea Point.

Dian is a well-rounded individual who is currently halfway with his MBA, studying through the University of Cape Town. He is thoroughly enjoying his additional studies and the networking opportunities which come alongside it.

Overall, he is a great representative of our business, with his brilliant skills of connecting people and striving towards greatness.
