#HERS-Story #Movers&Shakers Alumni 2016 Ms Kediemetse Mokotsi, is a Director Marketing and Public Relations at Vaal University of Technology. In pursuit of excellence and meeting the strategic goals and objectives of the University, she strategically manages all the affairs; functions and operations of the departments reporting to the position, namely: Alumni, Printing, Public Relations, Corporate Communications and Marketing and Branding. She holds a M-Tech: Marketing (VUT), CM (SA) (IMM); Management Development Programme (GIBBS); PDipHE (VUT); Certified Public Relations Manager (CPRM) American Institute for Business Management and Communication; Certificate in Management and Leadership (Maccauvlei Training Institute). She has 24 years of experience in Higher Education. General marketing including but not limited to: Fundraising; Donor Relations; Media Relations; Community Engagement; Events Management; Strategy Formulation and implementation; Policy Formulation and Implementation; office administration; Secretarial services; lecturing; motivational speaker and served as a member of a School Governing Body. Kedi expressed that women work harder to strike a balance between work, home life as well as improving their careers through personal and professional development training programmes, to empower themselves so that they can thrive well in a male dominated environment. As an expert in communication we asked her how women can leverage on the power of communication as a soft skill that is highly neglected or assumed that most have? Personally, she uses the power of communication to express her views while executing her duties as a Director. She also does self-continuous assessment in terms of skills gap and find ways and means to close these gaps through continuous training and development. According to Kedi, it is important to understand that marketing and communication starts from within the institution. Both staff and students are the Brand Ambassadors for their respective institutions. There must be an internal buy-in in terms of crafting strategies that will ensure positive brand presence in the public. The department can be of assistance to women who want to position themselves to create a brand visibility. How we present ourselves as women can make or break us, as it is a form of communication. Mastering communication requires one to analyse what they say, how they say it, when they say it and understand their audience. Avoid apologising unnecessarily. Speak with conviction and also consider your pitch, projection and pace. Women. can use both internal and external communication to create brand visibility. Internal communication includes being part of various committees within an institution. This also creates visibility and allows women to learn more about the internal processes. Using external communication, which ranges from public speaking, by being a guest speaker at various community projects, also by engaging with the media, submitting letters to the editor or comments on topical issues that are aligned to your field. Further, through participating in Higher education and Training sector networks that seek to promote sound working relationships across institutions. Women can learn and exchange ideas on best practices aimed at improving job expertise which are inherent requirements that will help us women to do well in our respective positions. Kudos to Ms Mokotsi! ... See more
