Passionate about the importance of communication in business, to staff, to customers, to stakeholders, to industry as well as the general public — she has assisted to get key messages communicated through magazines, newsletters, social media, websites, national events, festivals and more.

She is expert with Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator, and professionally trains others on these software programs. She has produced both hardcopy and online magazines, newsletters, journals, conference programs, fliers, brochures, business cards as well as advertisements for online applications.
The success of any event, whether it is a PR cocktail party, a 4 hour industry workshop, a 3 day National Conference, or a festival that runs over 7 weeks, requires expert planning, logistics and management. For small business, and not-for-profit companies, events are routinely handled by volunteers and consume vast amounts of time, while generating similar amounts of stress.

With a lengthy history in hospitality and events, from luxury cruises, to national agricultural conferences, Valeska is a competent and efficient organiser and manager. A real people person, Valeska’s skill in communications make her a great asset on our team.
