I studied education and communications and have been involved with corporate communications for the past 15 years. Combining by passion for both made sense when I got involved with the Make A Difference Foundation (MAD) 5 years ago. My involvement started out with organising fundraising events and from there getting involved with developing the Corporate Social Investment and Fund Development Programme of MAD. MAD is all about education. "The leaders of tomorrow need our leadership today", MAD focusses on creating educational opportunities for academically talented learners and students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds. Having the privilege, of meeting like minded business people and individuals in creating opportunities for the future leaders of South Africa, has been a rewarding journey. Giving me hope for our amazing country and humling me to see the good of people around me.
