I am originally from South Africa, but moved to Switzerland when I was 12, and have now been living in the Netherlands since I was 15. I graduated in July 2007 with a Bachelors degree in Communications, Advertising and Design Management. I also took part in an exchange program for my Communications study in Antwerp, Belgium. During my Bachelors course, I refined my studies in branding, risk management, event planning, human resources and marketing skills. By completing a number of projects, I have been able to perfect my skills in compiling a Business Plan, Event Plan, Promotion Plan, Communications Plan and Media Plan. While studying creative computer programs, I ahve improved my skills in Photoshop, Indesign, Dreamweaver, SPSS, and Microsoft Office.
I am now busy with a part-time Masters degree in International Communications Management in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The majority part of assignments done during this course are directly related to Communications activities regarding IAF.
Fashion Industry Experience
Before starting in my position with IAF, I worked as Project Manager at Bibi van der Velden; Wearable Works of Art. There I maintained all PR activities, compiled a Press Kit and organized the fashion show during Amsterdam International Fashion Week in January 2007.
