Marketing and Communications Manager at Masikhule - an NPO in the Western Cape that trains women from informal settlements in Early Childhood Development.
In October 2013 I left the corporate world and advertising industry to do charity work for one year ... everything I learnt in marketing and production has prepared me to do what I am doing now - and I love it! Previous employment (from 1999 to 2013): Studio Manager of Foschini branch of TFG, Subscriptions Marketing Manager at RamsayMedia, Operations Manager at BBDO, Production Director at Bates 141.
I hear your frustration! The best move I ever made was out of the industry and into the NPO world - there is a huge need for marketing/advertising talent here and I use my background now to help make a real difference.
