Cheri van Staden
Cheri has been in the industry for as long as she can remember… Starting off in Cape Town, then to Durban and finally spreading her wings in the United Kingdom where she was privileged enough to execute exclusive events alongside the Scottish Parliament. As a romantic at heart, Cheri also specialised in Weddings with more than 30 international weddings under her belt.
With her Clifton Strengths including Activator, Communication, Relator, Achiever and Belief – this is someone you want working alongside you. Still not convinced? How about a little more insight into what makes Cheri, well, Cheri!
Back in South Africa, Cheri was a part of The Aleit Group for years, first as a Project Manager in the Events Team and then as Director and Principle of The Aleit Academy. She has always taken challenge in her stride from the get go, so managing events all over South Africa under their banner, was a piece of cake! Cheri has worked on high-end accounts with top financial institutions executing numerous high grossing events in record time.
During her time as Director and Principle of The Academy, the school became a stand-alone, fully accredited educational body. Conceptualising of a purpose built campus on Lourensford Estate was also a project managed by Cheri from grass roots through to the physical breaking of ground, building and eventually furnishing of the campus.
As if that wasn’t enough, Cheri also conceptualised the Lourensford Harvest Market, situated on Lourensford Estate; the first of it’s kind in the area. Again leading the project from conception, through to the actual building of the market space and vetting of all initial exhibitors.
Family is something held close to her heart and so when she is not all consumed by her incredible husband and gorgeous daughter, Cheri is focused on creating exceptional events and weddings with her Clients. Strong Christian beliefs ensure that focus is on integrity and honesty in all dealings to make sure Cheri is always a woman of her word.
