Meet our speakers!
I offer a youthful eye with several years of experience. Being in the Media space has led me down many different paths. Currently working for the country's most successful media company (Primedia)has taught me so much about how people think and how people consume. I also run and own my own Branding and marketing company www.brandlabza.co.za , working with companies on strategies to grow their businesses. In a digital age it’s been so important to rethink how you communicate with audiences but with that said, if it's not broken, don't fix it. My life motto is, " Smart people learn from their mistakes, wise people learn from the mistakes of others.
An intuitive leader with an innate grasp of business drivers and growth strategies as well as the ability to see the big picture without losing site of the nitty gritties that impact everyday operations. A curious approach to problem solving coupled with dynamic communication and presentation ability, have all proven invaluable in the identification and crafting of profitable strategies for clients and employers alike. A firm believer in sustainable impact, my passion lies in the development of previously disadvantaged communities. We must, with all we have, work to elevate those who cannot do so on their own, for that is true generational impact.

Having spent the past few years working with SaaS companies of various sizes, delving into their day-to-day activities, assisting with finding new channels and developing new routes to market, I have realized my true passion for growing companies and brands. Researching and analyzing stats to develop new markets and new business opportunities and create product roadmaps is something that has really grabbed my interest recently. I look forward to seeing what the future of cloud looks like for these SaaS companies and to walk side-by-side with them in their journey.
