Marketing and Advertising | South Africa, ZA
I started my career at the age of 19. Graduated as a Sound Engineer in 2005, free-lanced for the ICC and Gearhouse SA, assisting in the Health and Wellness Indaba, Nampak Events, Unilever Events and Awesome Africa Music Festival. I went on to managing, planning and implementing a national event that gained PR. I had found my forte, Marketing.
Having completed my 1st year IMM i insisted on working and developing my skills. Employed by i3lab as a receptionist and working my way to a marketing assistant position, i had ambition beyond know other, i wanted more.
I opened my CC in 2008 and took on sub-contracted work, assisting designers and several corporates, but my focus was on SME. I developed an SME strategy for businesses that needed to create awareness, the business strategy proved a success for pro-active SME’s. At the end of 2010 i moved to JHB, and closed my CC. In 2011, i continued with my studies and completed my Marketing Strategy 4.
This year i will graduate in May 2012 from the Institute of Marketing Management Graduate school of Marketing, and complete my Applied Social Media in Business Challenges via Quirk; certified USB Executive Development Ltd (USB-ED) of the University of Stellenbosch Business School.
