More about Angelique and Event Synthesis ...
After matriculating, Angelique started her professional career at a local fast food chain, where she swiftly worked her way up from an entry-level position to running the operations department. However, as a competitive ballroom, Latin American and freestyle dancer from a young age, she had a dream of owning her own dance studio. Her journey as an entrepreneur started when she opened a studio with a partner in 2001.
Angelique has excelled at being flexible and identifying opportunities as they arise – key traits of a successful entrepreneur. She is also dedicated to uplifting others and helping them realise their potential.
As her dance studio kept growing, it called for her to coordinate more and more events. From this, her event management company was born.
Event Synthesis was one of the first to fill the gap in the niche market for dance competition management specialists. Angelique has used her experience of more than two decades in the dance industry to build a reputation for professional and well-organised events. Thanks to its impeccable reputation, her company now manages some of the country’s largest sporting competitions.
Event Synthesis also coordinates weddings, golf days, parties, functions, corporate events and Health and Safety Files as Angelique is also a Health and Safety Officer.
Events enable Angelique to provide temporary employment and skills development opportunities to varying numbers of people, depending on the scale of the event.
Angelique has achieved some of her greatest successes in 2019. She was nominated for the National Small Business Awards, won the bronze award in the Micro Business division at the FNB ROCCI Business of the year awards as well as being awarded as a Top 40 woman in MICE. Angelique has also recently been nominated as a member of the PCO Alliance Network which is an elite group of PCO’s in JHB.
Her greatest motivation is making her family proud. She is a dedicated wife and mother of two girls, aged 14 months and seven years. She credits the support of her husband, Adrian, both professionally and in their family life, as invaluable to her success.
