Tshwane Events Centre
Chief Creator of Awesomeness
He has a reputation for keeping an eagle’s eye on operations and has been instrumental in ensuring that the Events Centre implements national and international trends to maintain its status as one of the best conference facilities and events locations in the country.
Wim believes he’s the spitting image of Brad Pitt, however, others say it’s his winning personality and sense of humour that manage to clinch deals.
When not involved with activities at the Centre he spends his time walking the dogs – cleaning up after them is what he despises. Should he ever retire he might just take up on his childhood dream of becoming a driver of a road grader. The number of potholes on our roads should keep him quite busy in his old age.
His motto in life is to put his trust in God and to try to be fair at all times.
Ntombi is responsible for managing the sales team, developing a business plan covering sales, revenue, and expense controls, meeting agreed targets, and promoting the organisation’s presence throughout the country.
Her childhood dream of becoming an air hostess became partly true as she is also the middleman between the Centre and the public. Even when under severe pressure, she needs (and manages!) to smile and wave when dealing with high-calibre and enthusiastic clients in her fast-paced environment.
She will not be caught dead without her handbag and can probably sustain a small village with the amount of money she’s spent on this accessory over the years. Ntombi believes that if you want to be somebody, you’d better wake up and pay attention.
Creator of Technoliciousness
He is like a shark that got a whiff of blood when it comes to recognising system deficiencies and implementing effective solutions.
His ability to keep up with the high demands of the fast-paced environment that he operates in makes him a leader in his field of expertise. He will facilitate the equipment and technical services requirements for key conference and entertainment venues. The service is distinguished by impeccable delivery, quick turnaround and onsite technical consultation.
Other people’s stupidity sends him over the edge and like all technology geeks, he does know best. Michael believes that challenges in life are inevitable; however, what you do about them is what counts.
Finance DepartmentHendrik Meyer, Finance Manager
Enforcer of Moolahlishesness
As the person in charge of the Centre’s moolah, Hendrik plans, organises, directs, controls and evaluates the operations of the financial and accounting division. This includes developing and implementing financial policies and systems.
But don’t let his strict demeanour fool you; he’s got a few interesting party tricks up his sleeve that can turn any office function into a memorable event. His motto in life is ‘Adapt or Die’.
AdministrationKim Moss, Head: Administration
Enforcer of Awesomeness
As Head of Administration she oversees the support operations of the Events Centre to ensure effective information flow and that resources are employed efficiently throughout the organisation.
Kim’s responsibilities include project management, finance, human resources, office and facilities management and clerical tasks. In fact, she’s almost like the glue keeping all the divisions together.
Over the weekends Kim can be found sleeping late or at least attempting that. Her motto is to enjoy life to the fullest.
Kathy Wiggins Head of Conference Services
Despite her dislike of traffic, she makes her way to the Conference Centre on a daily basis to strike a balance between customer satisfaction and effective business management, which often means dealing with last-minute changes or solving problems as they arise.
She lives by the saying; perfection is not a goal, it’s a starting point. However, should you find yourself in her bad books; you might just be able to coax her over with a bar of chocolate.
Jane Morobe Client Services and Liaison
Her primary responsibilities include responding to client enquiries, ensuring consistent delivery of solution-focused services and developing a strong relationship with clients.
Jane believes hard work and dedication will ensure future success.
Jane Mokhari Client Services and Liaison
As a customer liaison officer she’s a focal point for customer problems, questions or concerns. She constantly seeks to fully understand a customer’s requirements and provide unstinting support.
Jane’s motto in life is to work hard to ensure success.
