For me, it’s not just about doing good things for worthy causes, but that’s a definite upside to being a HECT trustee
Hobart is a global business with offices on multiple continents, and I work for one small part of that global community. In the day to day it’s easy to forget that I am privileged to be part of a network of great people working hard for the same purpose. I’m primarily focused on selling in the UK and Europe, and sometimes obstacles such as distance and time zones make it easy to ignore the need to, and the benefits of engaging with my colleagues in South Africa and Australia. By choosing to engage with the charitable trust, we create a community focused on a common cause that enables us to engage with, grow and benefit from the wonderful community that we are lucky to be a part of.

After carrying out a few fundraising events with friends I jumped at the opportunity to join the HECT in July 2017. I think it’s a fantastic idea that as a group working together we can achieve great things for the benefit of other each year.

I joined the C&W sales team back in March 1995.  Charity has always been close to my heart and over the years it’s been awesome to be part of the HECT team.  The generosity of spirit that prevails brings much joy not only to the recipients but also to those involved.

I have worked with this Group as an “outsider” for many years. I moved to Ireland and was offered the opportunity of a new work experience with this Group as an “insider”.   Life is about new opportunities and new adventures to be shared for the benefit of all and so, if only from the sidelines, I hope to share those new opportunities and new adventures with those less privileged than myself.

Part of HR team I am based in C &W South Africa, Johannesburg. I joined the charity in August 2017. I strongly believe in empowering the disadvantage. I believe that Love is not patronizing and charity is not about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead. That is what Hobart charity is about giving love and empowering people.

I have been a part of the Carst &Walker South Africa team since 2009, based in our Cape Town office. It has been a privilege to be a member of the HECT and I am excited to join my team in the Telkom 94.7 Cycle Challenge for the first time this year.
One of my personal character objectives is to encourage and uplift people so that they can live victorious and abundant lives.
Being a part of this team creates the platform which enables me to achieve this as I value people more than performance.

Investment & Sustainability

Looking at the investments of the fund and looking to leverage value of funds to create a more sustainable income stream and grow the value of the fund.

Need in whatever form is something that surrounds us. Charity, again in whatever form, is the place where I believe the opportunity to address these needs comes together.
