Tell us about yourself and what motivates you:
As a sociable individual, I love meeting new people and creating new networks. Personal growth and development are strong drivers in my life. I believe that a person should always grow and keep moving from one point to another in all aspects, financially, spiritually, emotionally as well as academically. In my spare time, I enjoy tennis and jogging.
Growing up in Nelspruit, I relocated to Johannesburg where I completed high school and university.
Tell us about your journey and what you have experienced and learnt at AGORA:
Joining AGORA in October 2019, gave me great exposure to both Quantity Surveying and Project Management. Our directors proposed taking on a project management role within the company and I took on the challenge. Thanks to the background gained during my studies, I understand the requirements pertaining to both services. This was an opportunity to expand my knowledge and build my career. I find the project management side of my role enticing and enjoyable.
Another facet of my responsibilities involves the finishing phase and interiors of projects where other components also come into the mix, like imports, different timelines, and different suppliers. My role in these aspects is extremely versatile. During the 2,5 years at AGORA, our directors entrusted me with several large-scale and high-end projects each comprising of unique, intricate requirements. Being involved in all aspects of the project, from construction to interiors, one has a better perspective on the requirements to ensure successful completion and delivery.
