UNIVERSITY OF THE WITWATERSRAND, JOHANNESBURG

Our Team



Our TEDxWitsUniversity team:

Helen Lunn:

Organiser. Wears too many hats to mention and currently has a sore neck, which is preferable to her behaving like a headless chicken. Relies on her butterfly background to remember the correct plants to pollinate to create a fruitful outcome.

Shirona Patel:

Media expert and general PR genius who will help make the event all that it needs to be and more. Wizard with words and people brings freshness and professional expertise to the team.

Melanie Keartland:

Loves TED so much she goes to bed with it and has extraordinary dreams (we hope). Multiple skills, a ‘Can do’ lady of note and fund raiser supremo she is the lady with her finger on all the right buttons.

Zamantungwa Khumalo: 

Social media wizard and networker. Zamantungwa brings the energy and enthusiasm of her legendary character to the event. She has the courage to field the audience and manage a crazy schedule at the same time.

Tyler Morgan:

Acts like TIgger around TEDx. Is super excited to be on the team and has the computer skills to ensure that the actual production will run flawlessly.
