LYNN GILES

Making it happen against all odds!


Born in George

I have been in the tourism industry for 22 years in all aspects - operations, marketing and PRO. Am a freelance journalist to newspapers and magazines covering diverse angles.Worked for Mantis Collection as PRO for 4 years after which I started my own small consultancy in Knysna. Intrinsically involved in event management for the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival for 4 years running. Focussed, result driven to meet deadlines. Strength in copy writing, marketing plans and strategies, creative and lateral thinking. Am presently freelancing in George but would dearly love to be in Cape Town again where the action is.
