Behind Masiwela

Nicknamed MASIWELA, which means the one from across the seas in Ndebele, Judith Goddard founded her creative events agency in 2012 to help clients connect with their target markets through meaningful connections

Judith learned about the true meaning of hospitality growing up in Zimbabwe with a family that loves connection, community and bringing people together. 

In Switzerland, she mastered corporate hospitality with an Honours Degree in Hospitality Management, an award for Outstanding Student of her graduating class, and the Swiss Hospitality Touch for Leadership award in 2008. Working in the UK, US, Europe, Australia and Africa over the next decade influenced Judith’s unique, creative and signature style of Event Design and Management.

Judith 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.
