As a dedicated employee of the Employers’ Organisation for Hairdressing, Cosmetology, and Beauty (EOHCB) since the year 2016, my journey with the EOHCB commenced in the role of Divisional Manager for the Kwazulu-Natal region. Over the years, my responsibilities have expanded significantly, and in 2018, I assumed the added role of overseeing the development and management of our organisation's brand identity and marketing initiatives. Additionally, I took on the responsibility of content creation to promote the organisation, its activities, and effective communication for the benefit of our members, the industry, and our operational staff.

In 2021, I relocated to Cape Town and was honoured to be appointed as the National Marketing, Branding, and Client Relationship Manager, as well as the Information Officer (POPI) of the EOHCB. Since 2017, I have actively participated in various key structures and committees of the National Bargaining Council for Hairdressing, Cosmetology, Beauty, and Skincare Industry (HCSBC). In this capacity, I have served as a delegate, chairperson, and vice-chairperson of the Board, National Executive Committee, Sick Benefit and Pay Funds Committee, and Education Committee. Furthermore, I represent the EOHCB at the Personal Care Services Chamber of Services SETA.

My educational background includes qualifications in Marketing and Sales Management, as well as Hairdressing. I have also pursued certification courses in Labour Relations and Human Resources Management. My expertise as a qualified hairstylist has greatly contributed to my ability to effectively serve our organisation, its members, and the broader industry.

In my current role as the Marketing, Branding, and Client Relationship Manager of the EOHCB, I share the responsibility of developing and maintaining our organisation's brand image, nurturing client relationships, and driving our marketing strategies.

Some of my key responsibilities encompass:

Strategic Brand Development, Management of Marketing Campaigns, Conducting Market Research, Effective Client Relationship Management, Content Creation and Management, Budget Oversight, Data Analysis, Team Leadership and Collaboration, Brand Monitoring, Event Planning and Management, Strategic Market Expansion, Ensuring Compliance and Ethical Practices, Reporting and Communication, Promoting Innovation and Adaptation, and Managing Public Relations.

I take great pride in my role, which involves ensuring that our organisation maintains a competitive advantage within the industry and addresses the needs of our members in alignment with EOHCB's vision, mission, and objectives.
