Services & Consulting


I specialise in assisting creative business owners to establish their brand through a range of services designed specifically for small to medium businesses. I start off by getting to know my clients, understanding their needs and goals. Once I have a better picture of what is required, we get to work. I have a wonderful team within my virtual agency who are exceptionally talented and ready to help. We thrive on seeing our clients prosper!

Not based in Durban?  Don’t fret I do weekly Skype / FaceTime meetings and have several slots available.

What I do and how I can help your business? 
In most cases I suggest a one on one session to establish what is required...

Here are a few more facts regarding the consulting sessions:
My one on one consulting sessions are my most popular service and I personally really enjoy them. They are run with a firm focus on creativity with purpose. I pride myself in truly going the extra mile and offering my clients a calming experience to take care of their business needs. Clients are guaranteed discreet, confidential service at all times.

It's a dedicated time for business owners to share their thoughts, ask questions and receive my professional input on different areas of their business. It's also ideal for creatives who are still working on deciding what business to begin or how to take it to the next level. They run for up to ninety minutes and usually work either via Q&A or brainstorming, but can also take the form of a lesson if need be. I work with clients on content creation for social media, goal setting, understanding their vocation, amongst other topics. I also offer them via Skype / FaceTime for those not based in Durban. As an added extra I set an accountability check-in via email to ensure you get the most out of your session.

How many sessions will you need:
You are welcome to book more than one session, but I suggest an introductory one and from there we can map out your creative business journey in terms of the changes or course required. I only encourage follow-up sessions when they are truly required or we have a certain set of goals to achieve. My guidance can work in a multitude of ways from mentoring through to weekly assistance. Once we have discussed your business we can plan out the correct course of action.

Appointments are made in advance / usually one to two weeks ahead. The time slots are 9:30, 12:00 or 14:00 (after hour / Saturday sessions available upon request). I host them at my office in Station Drive Durban, or via Skype.

How to prepare for your session:
All clients are encouraged to make a list of questions or topics prior to the session to ensure we use the time wisely. If you feel that you need my complete guidance and don’t yet have questions / topics then I will guide you instead. You are most welcome to bring along samples of your product or branding – should you wish.

Feel free to let me know if I can offer more details or insight or click here to email me. Prefer chatting on the phone, my contact details are listed here.

I also offer specific themed sessions which run once a week for three consecutive weeks.
