Together, Let's Make a Difference
CHIEF PROBLEM SOLVER, Michèle
Since I can remember I have been passionate about leaving a positive footprint in the world.
I was born in South Africa and immigrated to Canada when I was 8 years old.
My first paying gig was at the front desk of a 4 star 5 diamond hotel. I first handedly saw what exceptional guest experience looks like, and I haven’t turned back since.
I left South Africa and landed in London, UK where I spent the next 3 years working and travelling until returning back to Canada to finish my degree in Psychology.
Psychology was a great start, but my heart wasn’t as passionate as I expected to it to be.
Through a serendipitous encounter, I became part of the organizing committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic winter games. I was part of the Venue Management team for the Stadium. Wow, I know! This was a life changing role and experience that still makes me smile.
Here, I saw the true meaning of making a difference. Each guest was moved by the experience they had while interacting with The Games in one way or another.
After The Games, I moved to Edmonton, Alberta, and worked in Venue & Event management covering about 1,300 events over 7 years.
What made me fall in love with the event world is seeing how a single event transforms a person for a brief moment in time. Someone enters the event and leaves all their worries at the door for a few hours.
After a few years I started to feel the pull away from my family and amazing son and took a break from the event life.
Although event life had its perks I missed the deliberate interaction with business owners. I found my perfect next step.
I help small businesses excel their online presence with exceptional websites and ancillary features.
I absolutely love what I do and pour my heart into each project. I can’t wait to meet you!
