GO PEOPLE – Lisa van Wyk

Q: Occupation? Community/charity work?

I am a creative by trade, a lecturer by passion, a project and event manager by default and a motivator by choice.

I am the registrar of operations and head up the graphic design programme at ELMI College.

Being passionate about giving back, I am also involved in a number of community-based projects. I serve on the committee of the Business Women’s Association, am a founding member of the Surfs Up Grom Club and an event organiser for the Wild Women on the Run.

Put it this way:.. I am very busy.
