Vanessa Perumal is an innovator, digital disruptor, African, a social entrepreneur, connector, lobbyist, human rights activist and media strategist. She is a mother who loves cooking with a desire to share original #AfricanNarratives. She is both a passionate African and a global citizen with a penchant for travel and exploring new cultures and experiences. She is a savvy #PublicityConnector who uses digital to disrupt and transform.
Vanessa started her career as a journalist who then branched off into publicity and media strategy. It would be apt to label Vanessa a “Publicity Guru”. Always outspoken, she’s in search of creating a future that sees social cohesion support development, end poverty and bring world peace. She is determined to change the #AfricanNarrative, because a thriving music economy does pay the bills, allows for creative genius and offers the world balance, unity, harmony and peace.
She is a lover of music and business on a mission to untap creative economies and actively shift markets to create wealth and build on platforms that influence #EntrepreneurConnect
