The
FluidRock
Story

We provide world-class corporate governance solutions to South African, African and international organisations. Since well-governed companies perform better all round including on the bottom line, having FluidRock as the corporate governance partner is essential for every organisation.

We work with executives, boards and company secretaries to apply practical and fit for-purpose corporate governance solutions in line with each country’s respective legislation, corporate governance code or international standard such as ISO 37000 Governance of Organizations. As we have 5 divisions: Advisory, Academy, Statutory, Co Sec and Compliance, Risk and Ethics we are able to provide a holistic corporate governance service offering to meet the needs of our clients. Our unique position of being in the boardrooms across industries enables us to learn and share developments with our clients and warn against the learnings of others.

FluidRock is the leading independent
corporate governance firm in South Africa,
Africa and internationally.

OUR PROMISE TO
OUR CLIENTS

We aim to live up to our promise to our clients
that include the following:

We are an independently owned
and operated group of companies.

We take care to remain independent as our independence enables  us to speak the truth.

Should a potential  conflict arise it is managed in line with our values and our  promise to our clients.

Corporate governance is the heart of our business and we are absolutely passionate about delivering the best quality services to  our clients. FluidRock is investing in technology as we believe this will result in better quality of service for our clients and work satisfaction for our team.

Corporate governance is a journey not a destination. We pride ourselves on walking this road with our clients where each year incremental improvements are introduced. Over time the cumulative effect of these improvements results in a more sustainable and ethical organisation. The introduced enhancements are achieved whilst the executives were able to focus on implementing their strategy and achieving results.

Being able to trust that we have our client’s best interests at heart and performing at a high level.

Our business philosophy is to build long and lasting relationships with every stakeholder.

We value that our clients view us as their trusted advisor in and outside of the boardroom. We encourage productive debates on pertinent points which inevitably lead to improved insights and better solutions through teamwork.

Each company is being governed in a particular way. Ensuring the quality of corporate governance in place is of paramount importance and research has shown the bottom line value of good corporate governance time and again.

Poor governance is as bad for a business as over-governance, hence the emphasis we place on fitfor- purpose corporate governance that is unique to each organisation.

Applying corporate governance standards that are based on the situational analysis of the client.

Our Name

The “Fluid” element symbolises a way
of operating in an enabling manner in
a regulated environment whilst being
business-minded and pragmatic.

The world of governance is synonymous
with the “Rock” element being the solid
foundation of legislation and regulations.
Yet, the “Rock” element also depicts the
type of relationships that FluidRock nurtures
with its clients – long lasting relationships
that will stand the test of time, trials and
tribulations and changing environments.

OUR OWNERSHIP

FluidRock is a proudly South African BEE Level 2, majority female owned company, of which 51% is broad-based black female owned.

FluidRock is the result of four companies merging in October 2018 and finalising a B-BBEE transaction to ensure that underprivileged rural women will benefit from our endeavours. One of our partners is the Phakamani Foundation that helps South African women lift themselves out of poverty. The Phakamani Foundation does exceptional work and not only are they a shareholder of FluidRock, but we also assist them with  corporate governance training and services to ensure they are a well-governed and sustainable organisation.

CORPORATE SOCIAL INVESTMENT

We support three organisations as part of our social and relationship capital and as we believe it is the right thing to do.

Huis Ebenhaeser

Motivated by the plight of neglect, abandonment and desperation of children and abused mothers in their community, Huis Ebenhaeser was founded in 1981 by Johnny and Soekie Thomas converting their home into a refuge and safe haven. Huis Ebenhaeser was formed as a faith-based non profit organization to provide a safe and stable home for children who have been neglected, abandoned, abused or caught up in family turmoil. Today, Huis Ebenhaeser does more than just house these children. They ensure that the children get good medical care, nourishing food, proper clothes, and an education. They provide counseling, lots of love, attention, and a positive lifestyle. But the most important thing they give the children is hope for a better future. Huis Ebenhaeser is located in Daspoort Pretoria North.

FluidRock has been supporting Huis Ebenhaeser for many years by assisting with the payment of the municipal accounts. If you would like to contribute please visit the website at www.huisebenhaeser.com.

Amazing Graces

Amazing Graces Social Investments (2011/009633/08; PBO ref 930 040 869) is a non-profit, non-denominational, Christian-based  organization, based in Centurion. Amazing Graces works towards improving the lives of South Africans, especially the youth, in disadvantaged areas to advance the Kingdom of God by (1) changing the hearts and minds of people; (2) empowering them with knowledge and skills; and (3) creating self-sustainable societies by way of food gardens. The Amazing Graces projects channel the goodwill and resources of South Africans to poor communities to address the physical, social and spiritual needs of the people, and develop intercultural understanding and appreciation of one another.

FluidRock supports Amazing Graces by means of financial and administrative support. The Executive Chair of FluidRock is also a director of Amazing Graces and provides the required legal and governance advice free of charge. Should you require more information on the work of Amazing Graces, you are welcome to contact Dr Hanneke du Preez at dupreez@tracesofafrica.co.za.

Vastfontein Community Transformation

Vastfontein (2003/003122/08; PBO reg: 9300 08 399) is a non-profit company that focuses on the development and social upliftment of its  surrounding communities.  Vastfontein is situated 40km north of Pretoria near Hammanskraal and Soshanguve. Since its inception in June 1998 it grew from a small concern managed by individuals on a part-time basis to a non-profit company that owns the 17ha property on which it operates with a full time staff complement of more than 50 people. While Vastfontein focuses on education, skills development, emotional and social wellness, training & development and critical community needs (projects), its main activity is the primary and high school that has been established on the property and that caters for the critical educational needs of more than 300 impoverished children, many of whom also rely on the school for a meal a day.

FluidRock supports Vastfontein in various ways including contributing financially on a monthly basis, our Executive Chair is the Chair of the Vastfontein Board and our team members in their individual capacities make financial contributions.

Vastfontein urgently needs donations and support. If you are able to assist in any way, kindly visit their website at www.vastfontein.co.za and make a much needed donation. Apart from doing what is right, you will also benefit from the Section 18A certificate and resultant tax deduction.
