After completing her PDHT (UP) and then her PDBM (UNISA), a Diploma in Logotherapy (Viktor Frankl Institute), and most recently, a qualification in Social Entrepreneurship (GIBS) — she has raised a family, built an empire and has traveled the world seeking out innovations to bring back home to her many businesses in her beloved South Africa — her home and the place she feels is the world’s cradle of creativity.
