Rebecca Kambule

I am a performance driven and efficient individual; able to maintain structured systems within a fast-paced environment. My analytical and problem solving skills and eye for detail can enhance the image of any organization. I am able to build appropriate levels of communication and relationships within varied communities and organizations. One of my strong points is the ability to function extremely well under pressure, yet manage to stay calm. I am currently the sales & marketing manager at Hampshire Hotel in Ballito (North of Durban), also a committee member for the local CTO of Kwa Dukuza, in the North Coast which mostly entails effective and continuous communication with all our stakeholders. I have spent my adult life in tourism marketing, starting from hotel school in Dortmund - Germany, then back home at tourism college followed by 7years as a travel consultant at some of our country’s biggest wholesalers, Tourvest and &Beyond; Akilanga DMC. My love for destination marketing drew me back to hotels, first as sales executive, sales & marketing manager for new city hotels in Cape Town, Johannesburg which was a new phenomenon at the time in South Africa. I have been with the current hotel for over three years now, still passionate about promoting the most beautiful country in the world, South Africa!
