GLOBAL HEAD CIROC 

Deshnie is a bright shining light of enthusiasm and optimism! When you work with Desh you can’t help but to feel inspired. She was critical to the success of the CIROC X MOSCHINO campaign in South Africa - bringing superb ideas to the table and delivering top notch results.

 

Not only is she a pleasure to work with she is constantly up- skilling herself and as a result is always on top of trends and what is happening on the digital and cultural landscape. She inspires me and other woman to reach for the top and to never give up! If I could work with more Deshnie’s I would be extremely happy! Desh - thank you for all that you do! Never stop being as cool as you are!
