Writing & Translation
18 years in the financial industry as a marketing and communications professional. Bachelor of Arts degree with two Project Management diplomas and a certificate in html and web design amongst others.Worked as Marketing Specialist in South Africa for Investec Bank, New Era Life Insurance, Commercial Union and Mutual & Federal Insurance (1990-2003). Here in New Zealand I did some freelance marketing work in Tauranga, then signed up as Online and Digital Communications Manager for Spicers Wealth Management for three years, followed by six months as Marketing Manager for Tower Investments working under Sam Stubbs. Corporate life was not providing sufficient stimulation so I started freelancing as a Marketing and Online specialist in June 2009.
