“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”. A motto that has driven owner, Shelley, to always making sure she is doing what she loves – and that’s organising!

Shelley spent most of her corporate career in the Public Relations and Marketing fields and was the PR Manager for a large multi-national retail company for over 10 years. She became an expert at ‘pulling out a magic wand’ and making the seemingly impossible, possible (often on a shoe-string budget).

Shelley realised that she was born to organise and truly loved bringing all the pieces of an event together as an event manager. Wanting to spend all of her time focused on the exhilarating world of events, Shelley decided to open her own Corporate Events company.

Protea Events allows Shelley the opportunity to engage with so many different people and working sectors across South Africa everyday and bring their functions to life. Shelley attends every function organised by her company to ensure a top notch event.

Protea Events has established relationships with many 3rd party suppliers around South Africa who form a very important part of the Protea Event’s team in helping to bring their client’s ideas to life.
