Integrity Matters – Charissa Bloomberg
Charissa Bloomberg – Celebrity Phsycologist | Integrity Leadership Specialist
Company: Hidden Dimensions
I have lived in the City Bowl most of my life, however I always dreamt of living on Lagoon Beach in one of the townhouses called Zonnekus.
When a townhouse became available in 2013 and I met the owners, who were an amazing couple and they who allowed me have my cats, I grabbed the opportunity!
I lived there for 3 years and enjoyed beach life right on my doorstep. I walked my cat on the beach at night (when there were no dogs) and loved it. I rescued birds and rescued lost dogs and did my own beach clean-up.
Unfortunately along with beach life comes a huge noise, especially in summer as the beach is right by your door-step.
I then moved into Milnerton where I rent a more quiet, pet friendly and peaceful home.
I love it here and will never consider moving back to the City Bowl.
I am a confirmed Milnerton resident now for 4years!.
Integrity costs nothing, but when you lose it, you lose everything. Integrity is key to everything we do. It is pivotal to business. We need to impart integrity to the youth, act with integrity in relationships, show integrity in parenting and, in fact, in everything we do.

Background on Integrity Leadership
After consulting in various institutions and working closely with teams, Charissa realised that although institutions have Integrity as their core value, many employees do not understand what it means to apply this value in their everyday life.
