Christelle is a lifelong entrepreneur who has co-founded businesses in the entertainment, consulting and services industries, co-owned a training and development company, as well as leading numerous large scale business transformation projects in corporate environments. As a Co-founder and Director of Metatrans, she has started this specialist division, which takes her no-nonsense approach to POPIA implementations to her clients. She and her team have for the past two years (and are currently busy) implemented POPIA compliance in various companies, ranging from Banking & Financial Services, to Telecoms and Government, and even a Medical Practitioner and Nursery school.

Combining her passion for people development, with the hard skill of project implementation, she has found a niche in Privacy Compliance Implementation. She believes that the success of POPIA compliance lies in the hearts and minds of the people. The processes, policies and standards have to be in place, but alone, they do not guarantee success. It is a subtle balance between these two that creates a synergy which carries the organisation into compliance.
