Roshnee Chinapa

Chairperson

Roshnee grew up wanting to become a veterinary however God clearly had other plans for her. After turning 21 and having completed her A+ and MCSE (which was big back in the day) she was afforded the opportunity to job shadow in an advertising agency assisting the head of TV and radio production and that is where she discovered her passion for the advertising world. Fast forward to 2012 when after working in the industry for 13 years covering various roles at some of the best advertising companies in SA such as Lowe Bull Calvert Pace, King James, TBWA, Hippocampus, Forwardslash specialising in Operations, Production, Traffic and Print Management, IT, Art Buying and Online Gaming she saw the demand for value for money advertising and decided to open her own business called Posh Promotions.

Posh Promotions is a through the line advertising agency that specialises in branding, promotional items and sports management. Her main focus was to offer her clients a product or service that was quality, at a decent price point and delivered timeously. Having a more personal approach to doing business with her clients was something that just drove her to want to do more and to the best of her ability.

8 years later and she is still going strong. She is faith driven and knows where her blessings come from. She does volunteer work at children’s homes and animal shelters in her spare time. And the proud mother of three beautiful adopted children. She strives to stay humble and driven by always wanting to serve the underdog both two and four legged. Restoring humanity is what she is most passionate about more so now than ever before. She believes that each person has been given a gift from God and that we should strive to use them and with her, she uses her gift to serve others.

All around you there are people who are hurting, people who need love, people who need encouragement, use the gifts and talents that you have and bless them – The Lord’s Plan
