Nelson Mandela – A Life Celebrated: Due to The Phoenix Partnership’s extensive experience in managing event media services, Wendy Masters was appointed Communications Manager for the City of Cape Town’s tribute to the late Nelson Mandela on 11 December 2013. The role included facilitating the seamless registration, accreditation and media centre management for 150 journalists at the Cape Town Stadium.
Wendy worked as a fully integrated member of an extensive team of event specialists and advised on the set up and fitment of a large and well-equipped media centre. Aside from the administrative preparation and processes undertaken before the event, Wendy facilitated the print, online and broadcast reporters’ and crews’ requirements on event day.
The ceremony, which featured international star Annie Lennox and local acts Freshlyground, Johnny Clegg and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, provided a fitting tribute to one of the world’s greatest leaders of all time.
