Watch movies and read, both things which are difficult to do if you have a 2 ½ year old daughter.
Why have you decided to join IIG Global 2019?
I love travelling to the USA and it will be great to meet other insurance professionals
If you had one travel tip for first-time travellers what would it be?
Drink enough water during long haul flights, glass or two of wine is also highly recommended.
What are you looking forward to the most on this trip?
To get a better understanding/insight of the American insurance industry and see the latest insure tech or even just tech developments in Silicon Valley.
Tell us something fun about yourself that most people don’t know?
I have an identical twin brother….
What is the one thing that you cannot travel without?
Laptop and kindle.
If you could live in any other country where would you live?
What country has the best food?
South Africa with Spain a close second.
What is your least favourite thing about travelling?
Jetlag and missing my family.
How will u be putting the SA in the USA?
It’s important for us as South Africans to be positive about our own country, anyone you meet is a potential tourist or you never know maybe even a potential investor in South Africa
