Jeannie D – Conference MC has experiences that have resulted in Jeannie being an ideal MC for local and international clients who are looking to add that “little bit extra” to their event.

The famous Arabian tale goes something like this………Aladdin rubbed the lamp three times, out popped a ‘Genie’ and granted him three wishes.

In today’s story, Cape Town’s very own Jeannie D is granting her own wishes and certainly making them come true.

The sky is the limit for this girl…
Born and bred in Johannesburg, Jeannie knew from a young age that performing was her forte.

As soon as she turned 12, she auditioned at The National School of the Arts (drama) and honed her acting and vocal skills.

She successfully managed to secure a number of lead roles in several theatre productions and a variety of commercials, such as in-flight videos and as a poster girl for SAA.

At 18 she enrolled at RAU where she studied a BA in Communications, joined the campus radio station – Rau Radio – and managed to win the Miss Rau competition in 2002, all in a short period of time.

Looking for a new challenge, Jeannie packed her bags and relocated to the Mother City. With acting and radio experience under her belt, she happened to be in the right place at the right time when Good Hope FM was looking for new talent.

Jeannie started off on the weekend graveyard shift as well as a daytime newsreader and within two months was given one of the top shows in radio – The Jeannie D Show.

She has fulfilled her dream by working in two of her favourite mediums. She is best known as the husky sensual voice on Good Hope FM whereby the city had the opportunity to tune into an energetic show every Monday to Friday for four hours, from 6pm to 10pm. She left in September 2006 to pursue her television career full time.

Jeannie D quickly established herself as a lead presenter on Top Billing and her tasks included travelling the world and interviewing top celebrities such as Bono and Leonardo Di Caprio.

Jeannie’s infectious personality and girl next door looks then lead to her starring alongside local hunk Janez Vermeiren in the very popular Top Travel.

The show proved to be so popular that it was syndicated worldwide and then went on to be rated as the best new show on the Travel Channel.

The cherry on top of a phenomenally successful year was when the show was picked up by the Wealth Channel in America where Jeannie regularly entertained 8-10 million Americans per episode with her light-hearted vivacious personality.

Jeannie has been regularly voted South Africa’s favourite personality and is once again featured in the FHM Top 100 Beauties of the World. Never one to rest on her laurels, Jeannie D has successfully launched her own clothing line to critical acclaim from the nation’s foremost fashion experts.

These experiences have resulted in Jeannie being an ideal MC for local and international clients who are looking to add that “little bit extra” to their event.
