I love working in the Conference & Event industry
I can truly say that I eat, live and sleep conferences and events. How can you not be, if ‘office’ means being based in Africa’s leading conference destination and a desk overlooking Table Mountain. I am also very proud to play a leading role in the shaping of Southern Africa’s conference and event industry in my role as the National Chairperson of the Southern African Association for the Conference Industry (SAACI). SAACI is the voice of the conference and event industry in South Africa.
My most memorable Conference or Event
In 2013 I was part of the Fortune Global Forum event production team and was based in Chengdu, China for 3 months with my family. This was an extraordinary experience in every sense of the word!
My top planning tip
Always focus on the delegates’ experience; when we get wrapped up in the logistics we sometimes oversee small but important touch points which can make or break the conference. When challenges pop up always remember to keep calm and carry on – not matter what!
What makes me an excellent event & meeting planner
I love co-creating with clients and designing extraordinary and innovative delegate experiences. My role is to motivate and inspire our support team to go beyond what is expected. I strongly believe in professional and transparent business practices.
