graceCN&CO Durban is back in full, glorious, swing now that I am back from maternity leave. Grace is a little over seven months old and getting more adorable by the day.

Our lifestyle business model is really paying dividends! Being able to work from home means I get to spend time with my family while servicing clients wherever they are, be it Durban, Joburg or Namibia. Our business got some awesome coverage in Get It Online recently – have a look at the article titled Designing Her Life.

Our newest Durban-based client is City Logistics, a major player in distribution, line haul and warehousing in South Africa. We are helping the organisation to build more structure and strategy into its marketing and communication activities. Some exciting projects are being teed up to launch early in 2017.

Further afield… I recently reconnected with a number of my contacts in the Namibian insurance market, who I first started working with more than 10 years ago. After a hugely successful strat session we’ve started some exciting work on a total rebrand for the business. More news will follow in the new year.

On the subject of strat sessions, CN&CO has a highly experienced bunch of creative, business-brained people on board who are able to facilitate strat sessions at any level within the marketing or HR functions of your business – anything from high-level marketing strats to once-off campaigns; product launches to sales incentives; internal comms to training; recruitment to staff retention… the list is endless! It’s all about finding simple solutions that work.
