Event Planning Program
Head: Selmarie Grobler
I am the founder and owner of the Roots and Potchefstroom Chef Academy.
It was however a dare to go skydiving on my 40th birthday that set the scene to shift my boundaries and broaden my goals. The Roots was born soon after.
I was lucky to be involved in the entire process of shaping this company, even the building process of the facilities. I really loved every step of the way - it is so satisfying to see things fall into place with hard work!
After many years in the hospitality industry I know it is time to lauch Roots Academy that offers a qualification in events management.
To equip the student with theoretical knowledge, practical skills and passion in order to be able to function on exceptional level as event planner in a very competitive industry.
To contribute to the development of the hospitality industry by sending out top event planners into the industry.
