Magdél is a confident, positive individual with a natural logical, yet very creative approach & communicate well. Her work is her passion. She’s hardworking, goal directed, task orientated, enthusiastic and innovative & constantly seeking new, unique opportunities that would challenge her.

Since a very young age, she was motivated by internal factors such as the need for achievement and making a true difference; and she believes that success is a given if you are daring and have a passion for what you’re doing, combined with confidence, integrity and a little ignorance.

She is a born and bred “Jozi girl” who are now living part of her dream: staying in one of the most beautiful cities in the world – Cape Town. After matriculating in 2003, she continued the Academic journey for a further 4 years at the University of Johannesburg, where she graduated with a BA degree in Sport Communication (2006), a Post Graduate Diploma in Contract Law (2007) and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Sport Law (2007).

The last 8 years have been very eventful and Magdél sees it as a fantastic learning curve, which allowed her to build a strong foundation for what’s to come in the near future. Sport schools; marketing / PR and events; tutoring children with Autism and related conditions; intense research on toxins in food, our environment and vaccines and the influence on human behaviour; raising funds and developing sustainable funding models for NGO’s & NPO’s, building individuals’ brands and managing reputations – mostly online – has been some of the things she has been up to in these eight years. Some might say it’s very diverse, but for a person who is addicted to learning new things it’s perfect.

Some of her career highlights thus far includes:

  • Managing the second leg of Media24’s Space To Grow project – media planning worth R12m for 12 Social Enterprises
  • Negotiating R1.9million worth of media coverage for JAG Foundation
  • Raising a record amount of R1.3m in 4.5months for Die Burger Kersfonds. Target was R1 million in 6 months.

This self-starter does not wait for things to happen and believe in leading by example, which led her to earn the title of “Mover & Shaker” from clients and colleagues. She believes that most of what she’s achieved so far is based on her strong intuitive sense of fairness, her believe that one can stand tall without standing on someone, and her determination to never ever give up.

Magdél has inspired many people, and still do on a daily basis whether it’s in person or via her social networks. People are drawn to her vibrant & straight forward personality, “never-say-die attitude”, wicked sense of humor, and gentleness when dealing with people. She is not only winning hearts and inspiring fellow South Africans, but around the globe.
