Lisa’s talent lies in her interaction and communication with people. With previous work experience at an International Corporate Communications company, she joined Just Us & Otto to dive deeper into Project Management. She has proven herself quickly in the company and has successfully executed projects for Doha Festival City, QatarGas, HUAWEI and Audi Qatar to mention a few. Lisa moved to Qatar in 2014 after she completed her Master’s Degree in International Relations. During her academic years she travelled far, including spending one year in Australia. She enjoys reading and traveling across the world whenever she has time. But nothing grounds her more, than her three dogs and spending time with mother nature.
Melissa is a Travel Tourism Marketing and Management graduate from Cape Town, South Africa. She worked at renowned Luxury tour operators such as Abercrombie & Kent where her desire to travel the world ignited. Melissa has since explored the world and landed in Qatar in 2016. Specialising in Talent Management, she has managed talents for some of Qatar’s most prestigious events and loves to be involved in the unique events happening in Qatar. She loves the outdoors – especially anything water related. Home is where the heart is and visiting the sunny beaches in Cape Town with friends and family is her favourite experience. Working in South Africa, UK and Greece familiarised her with a variety of cultures and experiences that she has found valuable in working in the multi-faceted event industry of Qatar.
