Philosophy

We pride ourselves in providing bespoke personal and professional services.

Our value add is derived from our partnerships and associations with like-minded people with proven experience. We have friends but we are not a business for friends. After all, it is individuals and teams, not corporations, conglomerates nor companies, that make things happen. We offer full transparency in our dealings with you so you can assess value-for-money. Integrity is our core value. Of course contracts are necessary, however we consider a handshake binding.

We encourage skills transfer in support of Youth Development and sustainable SMME developments and will seek out opportunities in every assignment.

We are here to help and get the job done.
