Goddard has earned the respect of her clients and peers through her very hard work ethic, her calm and composed demeanour under pressure and her reliability. She’s won their hearts and minds for her unique joy, enthusiasm and passion for life.

“It is an incredible privilege to join the RXSA team; they are a big thinking, action-orientated and dynamic team of people who are leading the trajectory of business events in Africa.”

Goddard adds: “There is a lot to look forward to with Fame Week Africa. Each pillar – film, arts, media and entertainment – is set to showcase the best of the best in terms of talent and skill that we as Africa have to offer. Our comprehensive approach to qualifying buyers ensures that our meetings/match makings will be of the highest quality. Our global relationships enhance our efforts from a brand association point of view, as well as in actively driving a knowledge sharing economy across continents. The Fame Reel Talent Showcase is also going to be a showstopper, our vision here is that this becomes a platform that helps artists launch their careers. Did I mention that Comic-Con and Cape Town International Animation Festival will be co-located at Fame Week Africa? We are truly a safari of events bringing film, arts, media and entertainment together. And this is just a snippet of what there is to look forward to, there is so much more!”

As the inaugural FamE Week Africa 2021 embraces and reinvigorates all sectors of the continent’s ultra-creative community, Reed Exhibitions Africa extends the warmest, brightest welcome to our newest family member.
