A highlight of his career was his appointment as the Chairman of the Technical Consulting Mechanical and Electrical Committee of the South African Chamber of Mines and the Mining Apprentice Training Board for a number of years. 

On retiring in 2004, Len has continued with his interests and is currently very active in project management related training, coaching and mentoring and ERP/CRM system development and implementation.
