On the weekends I'm a footy fanatic ⚽ (#GGMU 😈), a big foodie and a HUGE Pixar fan!
In my day-to-day I'm a brand strategist. I help businesses to formulate an actionable brand strategy, through workshops.
I guide brands to think things through, sort out all the mess and confusion in order to align and bring clarity, through brand strategy.
I've been helping brands for over half a decade now 👴🏽.
It's become my sole duty to set the right foundations and create a pathway to grow, adapt, transform or create brands.
My (professional) branding journey started in 2016. After finishing my real estate investment education I started providing real estate companies, with design services such as logos and collateral.
I then went on to become VP of a PropTech startup, where I worked a lot on the companies business strategy, brand building and brand strategy as well as being involved with the app/software development, and day to day client management and operations.
I have been privileged to work with and learn from some of the greatest minds from top leading organizations within the startup, property & branding industry that taught me a lot about the value of brands and the importance of strategy.
From that, I founded 9 Designs, which initially was a branding agency servicing a niche real estate clientele but more recently we completed a pivot to now be focused on building positive impact brands.
As the years have gone on, my lifestyle, perspectives and priorities have changed.
I've become aware of the pressing issues with our climate, food, land, pollution, water, wildlife and more.
I realized as a thought-leader in the world of brands, I have a BIG responsibility towards recognizing the integral role of brands, in the future of the people and the planet.
So, I decided to put all my knowledge, experience and expertise, to use and embark on a serious mission.
To build 1000 positive impact brands. 🌟
To build brands that can withstand the test of the digital evolutions and rapidly changing consumer trends, whilst still being able to make a positive impact.
Now, I'm doing exactly that through my workshops and private one-to-one strategy.
Helping to build positive impact brands.
Fun fact 👇🏾😎
Throughout my teens I was really into mixing music. One of my YouTube videos has more than 1+ million views - LINK HERE! My stage name was DJ Kay Ess ("K" & "S") 🤣.
Interesting fact 👇🏾😎
I perform strategy with one eye...literally. 😅 In 2018 I lost central vision in my right eye through a retinal detachment. Which essentially made me blind in the right eye, being able to see only peripherally. But this really made me appreciate my life because it reminds me to value the gift of sight.
My three life principles
1️⃣ Everything happens for a reason.
2️⃣ It all works out in the end.
3️⃣ Belief leads to action which leads to results.
