THE PRODUCTION LINE-UP
They’re the thinkers and the doers, the glue that binds, the go-to team. They roll up their sleeves, get stuck in and do whatever it takes until the job is done. They’re quite simply the movers and the shakers who keep each and every project right on track.
Marketer, event organiser, project manager, innovator, coordinator and the ultimate team player – always leading from the front. She’s also a wife, mom, friend, passionate and enthusiastic South African.
Born in Rustenberg, she was raised running around the apple farmlands of Elgin. She’s loving, kind, honest, doesn’t fence sit, play politics or pass the buck. She’s prone to a good glass of white and letting her hair down when the moment is right. Digs the Transkei. A good listener, she’s both analytically and creatively minded. She also shares a birthday with her hero and ultimate statesman, Madiba.
Karen believes in her job, her family and helping previously disadvantaged young adults. A ferocious reader of non-fiction books, she loves to travel and experience different cultures. Babies are her absolute weakness, growing small businesses her passion and cooking wholesome food surrounded by family and friends her love.
Strategist, creative tactical perfectionist, marketer, event manager & coordinator, big brand launch professional, Wonder Woman. Born in Trinidad, raised in Bryanston and Broederstroom. She’s an out-and-out family girl – kids and hubby are super-important. Committed wannabee chef, shoe shopper, water-colour artist and gardener.
Cries easily during chick-flicks. She a graduate from the School of Creative Thinking, energetic, proud of her clients and the very definition of an eternal optimist. She believes in working for the common good, teamwork, shooting from the hip and getting it right. She believes in opportunities, in opening doors and in good manners (just ask her kids). Everyone is her hero. She severely dislikes cutting corners, wasting time and traffic. In between straightening skew wall pictures and injuring others kickboxing, she’s a trooper, a true gladiator and a superb business partner.
Problem solver, go to girl, multi-tasker, #askdebzshewillgetitdone. Loves The Production Line – says it’s electric, never dull, drives her crazy (which keeps her sane.) She loves rugby, water-polo and is an Everton football fanatic. She’s also passionate – about Green Peace, environmentalism, Gift of the Givers – and cats. In her spare time you’ll find her floating her boat playing cards, watching The Shining and, if she’s feeling overly romantic, Pretty Woman or The Proposal. Well-balanced, caring and generally quite harmless, Debz is a truly solid citizen – unless of course you’re into bad driving and littering which is when the Dark Side comes out.
Born in Botswana, Tshedi’s number 1 priority in life is making sure her twin boys and dad are looked after and taken care of. She’s humble, passionate about her work and is a complete legend at getting things done. A bit of a busy-body, she uses every minute of her spare time as productively as possible – spending time with her fam, launching herself into Park Runs or studying, studying, studying. She’s not much of a talker, preferring instead to let her actions do her talking for her. She’s motivated, driven to succeed and lives by a simple credo: ‘keep going and don’t be normal because you wont know how amazing you can be.’
Born in the UK, raised in sunny SA, Charlotte holds the reigns and keeps finances tightly under control. She a Financial Manager of epic proportions and loves the legend that is Mandela. In her spare time she’s a reader, a garden designer, a true-blooded South African cricket and rugby fan. She swims, gets into those seriously awkward yoga positions and enjoys a round or two of mah-jongg. Best not to be even marginally incompetent (or shun accountability) around Charlotte if you want to escape in one piece! You have been warned.
