Communications | Broadcasting | IoT

Refiloe spent 14 years in radio and television as a news anchor, presenter and producer. She also acted in two films: Clint Eastwood’s 2010 film, Invictus and Roli Nikiwe’s 2012 film, Nothing for Mahala. Her website and YouTube channel, RefilloeLife, focused on addressing the gap in the mainstream media’s offering to women who were not thirst trapping, fashion blogging and generally living only for the gram.

After five years of co-hosting Metro FM’s highest rated drive show, TouchDown 326, Refiloe left to pursue an exciting investment and work opportunity in China. Upon returning to South Africa, she began focussing on engendering an urgency among South Africans around how we are shaping our collective future, how our current social contracts hobble us, and how future ones could help us to develop.

Refiloe is currently working on a podcast agency that will among other things focus on creating thoughtful and enlivening content for South Africa and beyond.
