Cherylann Sawyer INNOVATE™ South Africa Co-Publisher



Cherylann has a Degree in Psychology and a passion for marketing—playing a key role in working with organizations to succeed in the digital economy. Think of it as marketing in a digital age rather than digital marketing.  As communication has shifted in the last 10 years, real connections are center stage and collaboration is key to building meaningful connections. Having lived and worked in Cape Town and Gauteng for over 15 years, Cherylann moved back to her hometown on the coast in South Africa with her husband, two daughters, and son where she works as a consultant and coach.

Her passion for networking and communication has ignited the start of her publishing career.  If you’d like to find out more about INNOVATE™ South Africa, and how we could work together to showcase and celebrate your role in this Innovation Ecosystem, you can reach Cherylann at [email protected]
