  • Specmed’s e-marketing profile within our industry was basically non existent. Within a few months BrandShifts turned this around and today we generally appear within the top three results for any web search for our products. The new website they produced ensures that we are not only found online but also deliver a pleasant browsing experience for our clients.

  • Karien assisted MAD Leadership Foundation (based in South Africa) to launch the Inaugural UK Benefit Auction as a new fundraising initiative and to assist the Foundation to attract a wider supporter base. This event was centred around a premium offering – with the intent to offer guests exclusive access to South African art, fine dining and entertainment in a sophisticated and stylish event package. Her support in this regard was irreplaceable, her ability to commit event sponsors, juggle suppliers and engage guests was invaluable to the establishment of this event. We highly recommend and endorse her services as a marketing and event management asset and expert.

  • Paul Roos Gymnasium had the honour to have Karien on board with our 150 Year celebrations and prestige golf day.
