Hi there everybody, 

My name is Christa and I am proudly South African.  Being born and raised in such a diverse and multi-cultural country has given me the opportunity to work with, manage and lead a number of culturally divers and unique employees. 

I have more than 15 years marketing, sales, customer service & administrative experience and have had the pleasure of working for some of South Africa's largest organisations over the years.

I am currently a marketing & branding consultant for a company based in Germany, where I learn new skills almost on a daily basis. 

I enjoy learning and see myself as an eternal student. I have a certificate in PR as well as my BCom. Degree in Business Management - majoring in Marketing through the University of South Africa.  

Teaching and sharing my knowledge is a passion and I am grateful for the opportunity to share what I have learned over the course of my career with all of you!
