Charisse Fourie


I was not always a writer. I used to be a teacher, teaching Grade 5 in Lavender Hill. My career path was a windy one, the path took me to private teaching, then to video production as a production manager, then to FCB as an Account Manager, then to Client Service Director in a smaller agency. After having a baby I moved to marketing where I was the Global Marketing Manager for an international volunteer organisation. There I managed a team of content creators, social media managers. In this role I had the opportunity to curate global campaigns and do crisis PR management. After 2 years, I decided a slow pace of life was something I wanted to explore. I know work part-time as a Fundraiser and Communications Manager for a local NGO. Here I get to write and strategise. I also started a small marketing consultancy where I help start-ups and NGOs with marketing strategise and build small websites. The rest of the time I spend with my daughter, exploring myself, the world and what it means to live on the outside, more focused on an inwards journey than an external one. My husband and I dream of packing it all up and moving to a small town. I know plan to document this journey as we travel through South Africa looking for this perfect home for us. My writing to date is a mixture of industry opinion articles, personal accounts of my journey as well as content created for clients. A few clippings are below.
