14 July 2020 Letter of recommendation for Marcelle Ravid, Marketing and Communications Manager, ORT SA. Marcelle Ravid worked with ORT SA since January 2012. I worked with her, first as a colleague and then as the CEO for almost five years. Marcelle is dedicated, committed and open-minded for new ventures and ideas and a fast learner. Her swift adjustment to digital marketing required her to learn new platforms and gain new skills in a short period of time. Her expertise in the field of Communications has enhanced and grown awareness of our organization, exponentially. During this period, Marcelle also took upon herself extra roles such as the Spokesperson for the organisation, PR and was in charge of ORT SA’s POPI Act. She also initiated the annual Mandela Day, which runs successfully every year. She created warm and long lasting relationships with external stakeholders and with ORT SA staff and lay leaders. Marcelle will be an asset to any company or organisation and she will be immensely missed by management and staff members. Should you wish further information, feel free to contact me.
