Profile

After an early adulthood as a green activist in California, Lorraine returned to South Africa and took up a procurement position in one of Africa’s biggest hospitality groups. For the next 15 years, she fought a hard battle trying to sway people in favour of green procurement, this being at a time when sustainable choices were more of an interesting idea than an urgent call to action. Slowly, Lorraine started to see the thinking change and green attitudes edge into the mainstream as people became more accepting of the fact that Earth really was in trouble. The mounting eco concerns combined with her procurement background stood Lorraine in good stead to develop an online procurement aid for hospitality venues. Her brainchild and business, Hotelstuff, was born in 2001 and was followed in 2009 by its sister, Greenstuff, a green-only online procurement tool. Lorraine and Greenstuff stood at the forefront of the green wave in South Africa, breaking new ground in many sectors.

Lorraine has enjoyed wide industry acclaim for her tireless work in the field of sustainability with many an award on her proverbial mantelpiece, including the Imvelo Responsible Tourism Award, (FEDHASA Chairman’s Award) in 2012 for outstanding work towards improving tourism in South Africa and for twenty years’ of research and subtle activism. Lorraine was also invited to write a module for the Department  of Tourism’s Responsible and Sustainable Tourism Handbook,  focusing on responsible and sustainable procurement – a guide to why, what and how to become green and stay that way.

On the South African speaking circuit, Lorraine is widely respected and known for her fresh, engaging signature style and impactful delivery, often laced with well-placed humour. Her environmental messages are hard hitting yet practical and audiences leave with the beginnings of a fundamental mind shift, empowered with insight and real-time solutions with which to start a greener journey the same day.

Sustainability aside, Lorraine has evolved as a role model for professional women, an example that a career-minded woman in her 60s has as much, if not more, guts and gumption as any professional 40-something. Her big personality and inspiring personal journey as a mother, wife and businesswoman engenders inspiration in those seeking to build their own personal brand based on an inherent passion or belief.

Lorraine’s speaking engagements are usually 15, 30 or 50 minutes, or can be tailored as full day workshops for groups of all sizes. Lorraine also collaborates with industry experts and draws on her vast professional network to ensure that all speaking engagements and workshops are well-rounded, pitched appropriately and above all, relevant. She imparts a message of sustainable, responsible buying decisions to a wide cross section of society and businesses – from boardrooms full of CEOs, conferences full of academics to small gatherings of average folk just wanting to live more consciously.
