She has participated in several international conferences, been a guest on TV and many numerous radio shows, and spoken at many keynote speaking events. Charissa is the “relationship expert” on a very well-known morning TV show in South Africa called the Expresso breakfast show. Her multi-faceted expertise also includes having had her own private practice, written various research papers and magazine articles (that were published), and had several TV, radio and talk engagements over the last 20 years. Charissa has spoken at conferences around the world, and lectured at numerous universities in South Africa. After consulting in various institutions and working closely with teams, Charissa realised that although organisations have Integrity as their core value, many employees do not understand what it means to apply this value in their everyday life. Charissa extensively researched this topic to see if it can be trained and has consequently written her own training course, developed material and has been very popular giving talks on Radio and TV on developing Integrity. She facilitates the development of leadership internationally. As such, has recently decided to leverage her extensive knowledge and networks to focus on empowering the corporate world and youth to revisit the way we conduct ourselves in our everyday life. Charissa uses her large media network coverage to educate, inspire and uplift, on a large-scale forum and uses humour, honesty and shares her own experiences as examples.
