A message from our CEO
Creative and Marketing Manager – Tourvest Incentives, Meetings and Events
After completing my studies at Vega, I started working in the nightlife industry for almost 8 years, as a marketing and operations manager for a nightclub/function venue in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg.
I decided to change careers, as I wanted to put my studies into practice and applied for an available position at Tourvest Destination Management. After a successful interview process, I started working at Tourvest 1 July 2014 as a Creative Project Coordinator, joining a team of four, working in the BASE department. Two years later, early 2016, a handful of Tourvest brands amalgamated to form Tourvest I.M.E. (Incentives, Meetings and Events). I was then promoted to Creative and Marketing Manager under the Tourvest I.M.E. brand in September 2016, and currently enjoying the position, working for this amazing company.
Sales & Marketing Executive- Sense of Africa Botswana
I moved to Botswana in 2013 and joined Travel Wild as a junior sales consultant. The company had recently been taken over by Tourvest Destination Management, so there were lots of exciting changes taking place, and it is now known as Sense of Africa Botswana.
Throughout the first 2 years with Sense of Africa Botswana, I developed a keen interest in the marketing of the company. Whilst sales was my primary role, I enjoyed the website developments, blog and newsletter writing as well as handling the social media. In 2016 my position changed to Sales & Marketing Executive which has opened up many opportunities for me. I now get to travel extensively and meet a wide range of new people, all the while spreading the passion and love for Botswana. My knowledge of the country is vast, as I have daily opportunities to visit new lodges or experiences. I am fortunate to have found a job that is so rewarding in such an incredible country!
Contracting Manager – Sense of Africa
2006 I joined Sense of Africa with the intention of opening up a camping division. By then I already had 14 years’ experience in the tourism industry, which ranged from running lodges, serving as a bush chef and to being a full-time guide. Regrettably, the camping idea did not materialise, and in 2007 I filled the position of product developer within the company. By 2010 my bosses had the courage to promote me to product manager (apparently I knew quite a bit about the country and its products), and this position I filled until 2013 when I was moved to the contractual side of things, changing my name to Contracting Manager of Tourvest Destination Management Namibia. I immensely enjoy to work alongside suppliers, agents, colleagues and being challenged into new heights.
