Flight of the Bumble Bee ... Bridget van Oerle

Flight of the Bumblebee is recognisable for its frantic pace when played up to tempo. Symbolic of how Bridget van Oerle, Queen Bee of BUZ Publicity, operates in the world of arts, culture, lifestyle and entertainment. 

Founded in 1996, BUZ Publicity has since grown to become one of Southern Africa’s most respected and effective media, events and publicity firms, with a bulging portfolio of satisfied clients and award-winning campaigns under its belt.

Through imaginative campaigns and sheer hard work, BUZ has zoomed to take up a position at the forefront of the arts publicity industry. The company's raison d'être remains the same: using a hands-on approach to dynamic communication. 

"iStart2 get people to stop littering and to train our youth" - Bridget van Oerle

We chatted to Bridget about her recipe for success, her views on climate change, ("We need to be more aware"), sustainability, ("Recycling, cutting down on electricity and closing taps that are dripping") and the role she plays in making a difference in South Africa. "We work on projects that have meaning. Never forget the small people and the people with small budgets," says Bridget.
