As a proud South African, Vino is committed to contributing to building a nation that we will all embrace, be proud of, and feel a deep sense of loyalty to. Through Digital Marketing Edge SA she helps Entrepreneurs secure a firm presence in the digital sphere, and Not-for-Profits generate greater online global awareness of their causes and the amazing work they do.

Entrepreneurship as a solution to unemployment requires young people to take initiative, be innovative and demonstrate leadership in bringing about change. To this end, she offers the Young Leaders Unlimited Leadership Excellence Workshop to share necessary and critical leadership skills in a co-operative learning environment.

She is a Partner for World Speech Day (Southern Africa) – a day dedicated to demonstrating to young people through the world, the importance of using their voices as catalysts for change.

Why TEDxPretoria? Converted to TEDism ever since she watched Ernesto Sirolli’s ‘Want To Help Someone, Shut Up and Listen’.
