In our first meeting Jenny Griesel asked us, "Where's our dream place we'd love to be featured?" That question captures Jenny and her work ethos to a tee because it takes real bravery to ask this AND then actually deliver on it, especially in the unpredictable world of PR.

Her tenacity and robust relationships in the industry ensured we were able to get featured in the Sunday Times, The Star, Cape Argus, The Citizen, on 5 FM, Kaya FM, CNBC Africa, Maggs on Media, Moneyweb and as a lead contributor on BizCommunity to name a few.

In addition, Jenny assisted us with writing a series of thought leadership pieces and secured exclusives with top South African media platforms.

Jenny makes dreams a reality and any brand that Jenny choses to work would be lucky to have her.
