Helping organisations find their true north and achieve great results


Buyani Zwane is the founder and Managing Director of Breakthrough Development, a leadership and management consultancy that has been helping organisations find their true north and achieve great results for over two decades.

A master strategist with extensive experience in human resources management and leadership development, Buyani believes that all people are born capable and with the right guidance, can transform and step into their greatness as individuals and as contributing team members. Having grown up in rural KwaZulu Natal he has navigated many different work environments, including leading Franklin Covey Southern Africa, represented in 14 Southern African countries and Indian Ocean Islands.

He understands and knows how to negotiate the complexities faced by individuals and organisations in South Africa and the rest of Africa. This enables him to work with organisations in different sectors, from blue chip companies to different spheres of government and state entities.

Buyani brings his wealth of experience and compassion to his other engagements as a keynote speaker, business and leadership coach and an adjunct faculty member at the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), one of South Africa’s leading business schools. There he engages programme participants on strategy formulation and execution, leadership, management, transformation and change management, which enables him to stay up to date with the latest developments and practices.

In addition, Buyani serves communities, among others capacitating school leaders across South Africa and working with NGOs, FBOs, and CBOs to cultivate healthy male identity and behaviour in their communities and societies.
