Terri Botha

Strategist, Actuate

Terri Botha never dreamed she would become a co-owner of an internal brand activation company. After studying fashion design and getting a degree in communications at Unisa, Brown found herself in a dead-end job. She literally did not want to get out of bed in the mornings. A friend introduced her to her current business partner one Wednesday 10 years ago. The following day she resigned from her job and Friday that same week Botha began her new career as an internal brand activator. From the humble beginnings in that small company, she now boasts a portfolio including big brands such as Standard Bank, MTN and Transnet. � Jane Steinacker
