A Strategic Design Thinker….
Rizél Delano is a strategic thinker who can quickly sort through the clutter and find the best route for any project, campaign or endeavour.
Being strategic is not a skill that can be taught. It’s a distinct way of thinking, a special perspective on the world at large which is what makes Rizél such a great and proficient consultant to work with.
She sees patterns and designs where others simply see complexity. Mindful of these patterns, she plays out alternative scenarios, always asking, “What if this happens? Okay, well what if this happens?”
This recurring question helps her see around the next corner and the next, taking an integral approach to every task.
She evaluates accurately the potential obstacles, guided by seeing where each path leads to, removing obstacles or potential issues before they appear, and making the right selections toward realising the vision.
Her intuitions are created by a brain that instinctively anticipates and projects, and she naturally sees a way when others are convinced there is no way, that’s why Rizel is so successful in everything she does.
Rizel’s innovative yet immediate procedural approach will be critical to the genesis of a new venture because it will keep its creators from developing deadly tunnel vision, or become bogged down by discussion or blocked by barriers, and ending the stalemate by creating a plan to get things moving again and spur others into action.
In her opinion – every business she ever worked with no matter how sophisticated, successful or fully functional, had something they needed to change or add to their strategy – simply because markets and technology change so fast.
Achiever and Activator
Rizél has strong inner discipline, focus and drive – an innate source of intensity, energy, and power that enable her to push hard to get things done. As a result, she often sets the pace and defines productivity levels for people who work with her (which can be demanding at times) – but always achieve objectives with meaningful outcomes.
Rizél can naturally see how to turn ideas into action after systematically evaluating different scenarios and considering all the obstacles. As a result, she makes things happen with contagious and engaging energy. If you have an important project that needs a jumpstart and instant momentum – she’s the one to contract.
Easily relate with all types of personalities and characters, able to form close and trusting relationships with time. More interested in the character and personality of others than in their status or job title.
Eager to serve as mentor, and help colleagues perform better, be successful and feel fulfilled. Give honest feedback and encourage achievement by pointing out more or better options.
Create opportunities to cultivate strong, long-lasting connections.
Rizél’s day always starts out with training, eating healthy and learning something new, either from the industry in which her clients operate, along with keeping abreast with marketing trends and relations needed to keep her skills and expertise current and on par.
Rizél Delano matriculated at Monument High School in Krugersdorp, Gauteng, South Africa in 1984 and started out in direct selling in 1985, working for several direct marketing firms on a freelance basis.
Most sales and marketing training throughout her marketing career was done through Success Motivational Institute (SMI) and Business Schools such as Damlin.
Diplomas earned included; Creative Selling, Personal Time Control, Skills for Dealing with People, Personal Motivation, Personal Goal Setting, Human Relations, Business & Marketing Management, Marketing, Advertising, Public Relations, Media Planning and Relations, Promotions, Event Co-ordination, Exhibition Management and Journalism.
She then followed a passion for writing and journalism, practicing for three years in the field and obtained various journalism qualifications and accolades. She started a Project Management Consultancy in Communications five years later – and a bit after that branched out to construction and property development industries, believing that creating something bigger will satiate her innate need for design and expression.
In 2004, a change in her personal life pushed her more towards going deeper into and studying creative arts, travelling Southern + Eastern Africa, where she obtained vast experience in investigative journalism, travel journalism, publishing, film and documentary production.
Taking knowledge from all her endeavours – today in 2018 she is well equipped to tackle a vast range of projects with high demands.
