Apart from being an altruistic patriot; I am passionate about the tourism industry. I am currently a Doctor of Business Administration candidate conducting research looking at the stakeholder’s perspective on the challenges facing the tourism industry in South Africa. I will feel honoured and fortunate to be part of the Lilizela Tourism Awards. I am a Tourism Management Lecturer at Tshwane University of Technology when needed currently teaching Entrepreneurship. Moreover, having being exposed within the industry as I was working at the Newcastle local Municipality (Tourism Office) and I possess a Master of Business and Leadership which is an instrument that improves my leadership and strategic decisions. Although I have a Bachelors degree in Tourism Management, I have a vast experience in administration ranging from office and general administration to customer service qualities and administering document management system. I believe that I am the exact person for the job.
