Creative, motivated, always ‘in the loop’
Twenty-five years ago, following her journalism studies in Cape Town and a few years of broadcasting fun as a journalist at the SABC, Iris changed direction to travel and tourism, and arranging incentives and events. Of German decent, born and bred in Namibia, nothing gives her more pleasure than introducing visitors, whether incentive groups or individual travellers, to Southern Africa, knowing that most of the guests will return. Her aim is to ignite our visitors’ enthusiasm for the unique fauna and flora of the African sub-continent, and to introduce them to the many cultural groups living in this melting pot at the tip of Africa. Above all, she wants to create exceptional travel experiences and long-lasting memories.
Together with her ambitious team, they plan and execute perfect incentives and events in Southern and East Africa – as passionate as ever, and with a vast amount of experience to apply to our projects.
Companies for which she has created lasting travel experiences: Nivea, Scania, Volvo, Porsche, Heidelberg AG, and Generali.
Artistic and creative ‘beyond the obvious’
Tersia, born and educated in Johannesburg, has two great passions in life; events and art. She excels at figures and thus began her working career in the financial field before moving into the tourism industry. Being as talented as she is, Tersia still mainly works in finances but is also active on the creative side of the MICE industry.
Her enthusiasm for MICE stems from the valuable experience she gained over a period of 30 years in specialised events, launches, creating and organizing African markets, gifting for incentive groups, and everything from controlling budgets, logistics, and coordinating to the final detail of these events. Tersia’s creativity turns any company year-end function, high profile birthday celebration or team building, weddings, graduation functions, styling for local companies and individuals, and the smallest of parties into memorable, creative and above all fun experiences for our partners!
As part of the DICE Events Africa Team, Tersia’s reliable role as book keeper is complimented by her contracting skills with suppliers and she simply has to add her creative input on events and incentive projects like ‘spice to a good curry’.
