“Joie De Vivre” meaning “exuberant enjoyment of life” is one way to describe Samantha Dollman. Having been involved in events and destination management for 4 years, Samantha is a passionate events manager who always aims to design an entertaining and sensational experience with a dynamic and eager approach.

Samantha obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film and Media Production at the University of Cape Town. She then did a post-graduate degree in Strategic Brand Management and Communication at the Vega School of Branding. Samantha was set on heading towards becoming a producer for television and production companies but her heart was rooted in events management.

Samantha then started working at Mint Productions & Destinations in Cape Town for managing director of Mint and co-founder of the Women’s Lifestyle Expo, Helen Johns. Samantha saved up and also got the opportunity to travel around Europe on a Top deck Tour, which was one of her most unforgettable experiences.

Having worked at Mint Productions, Samantha has grown tremendously and has learnt a lot from her peers and colleagues. Samantha has also gotten the opportunity to travel to various locations. One of her favourite is Botswana where she assists on the entertainment and backstage management for the Diacore Gaborone Marathon.

In her free time, Samantha loves having a glass of rosé chatting to friends, cooking with her mom in the kitchen, making short video presentations for special occasions, walking her beloved Golden Retriever, Jack, in Tokai forest, and mountain bike riding with her cousins on the weekend.
