SALLY SCHIFFER

MARKETING DIRECTOR

Sally Schiffer has been involved in marketing and advertising for over 20 years having owned two ad agencies, leading both design and social media teams, building brands and developing creative marketing solutions. Sally grew up with deaf parents and in fairly poor circumstances, which she believes is the source of her drive and determination today. Sally fought hard to be independent and self sufficient, and her journey is one of a long and fruitful marriage – but ultimately, a failed marriage which included a period of rediscovery, self worth and non-judgement. Sally is determined to help other women realise their absolute potential by leading a complete and fulfilling life. Sally loves to travel, cook and entertain. She is a mother to three adult children and lives in Cape Town.
