“Well worth the money…”

Brandbuilder came highly recommended and they proved to be well worth the cost. We developed a great partnership with Brandbuilder, and their ability to creatively engage our staff in refashioning our vision and mission statements, as well as our values clearly depicts their commitment to customer satisfaction. We particularly appreciate how Brandbuilder demonstrated an understanding of the needs of our business, which in turn simplified the process.

— Charles Reid, Dawn Property Consultants

“They revived our brand…”

I believe the fact that the #eyesontheprize campaign has been nominated for Social Media Campaign of the Year speaks volumes. Brandbuilder has revived the Zimbabwe Sables brand on social media and created a real live loyal following on platforms where the brand was previously fragmented and inconsistent. We have also found their support with managing press relations invaluable as they have used their many years of experience in the media to craft strategic messages and help us manage sticky situations. They are meticulous in tracking mentions about our brand, reporting swiftly and recommending responses where necessary.

“She changed my life”

It would not be an exaggeration to say my life changed the day I heard Thembe speak for the first time. Her story motivated me to rethink my priorities and take charge of my life. I immediately engaged her as my mentor and coach and within six months of working with her, I had passed my driver's license, started exercising regularly, taught myself to cook wholesome meals and had a healthy savings account. Within a year I had purchased a car, acquired property and was ready to find a job that was more aligned to my career goals. That was 4 years ago. Thembe's tough talk and constant support is something I still rely on today to help me get clarity on any aspect of my life or career, and I have managed to overcome weaknesses such as procrastination. She helped me believe in myself because she believed in me more

“We rely on their words…”

As a listed company it is imperative that we produce work of the highest standards, reflective of the trust that our stake holders place in us. When it comes to wordsmithery, we rely on Thembe and the team at Brandbuilder for a polished final product.

“A leader with new ideas…”

“When our board first appointed Thembe, we had a sense that she would be the right person to set the organisation on a path to prosperity. What we hadn’t reckoned on was her enormous energy, resilience and an unexpected compassion. She was not afraid to cast a big vision, demonstrating her firm grasp of issues and sound long-range thinking. She introduced a number of innovations, in particular two new social enterprises which continue to be reliable revenue streams for the organisation to this day. She also used her extensive network in the business community to propel a fresh new face for the organisation in ways that we would not have been able to access without her. Bringing her signature passion and optimism, she was not only good for Island Hospice, but also good to it.” ROB WARD, Former board member - Island Hospice & Healthcare

“A rare individual…”

Thembe belongs to the small subset of rare individuals that are truly committed to seeing others succeed in their given spheres. Under her guidance, I have developed a distinct work ethic that has become the fabric of my brand as a communications professional working across several African markets. Thembe's coaching style has always had a 360 degree approach, ensuring that in addition to my career, my social, family, financial and spiritual life are kept in balance.”
