I am a reputation management specialist.

After completing my BCom Communication Management degree Cum Laude (and top student for the year) from the University of Pretoria in 2001, South Africa, I started my career as a research analyst at Access Market International, which was part of the management consulting firm Bentley West owned by GijimaAST. During this time I managed a number of research based projects and change management assignments. One of the projects that I was involved with was to measure the reputation of the IT industry; I was then allowed to use the study as the base for my Masters Degree (MCom), which I completed within a year. From there, I wanted to gain more experience in the communication field and joined Adele Lucas Promotions where I project managed the Soweto Festival and also assisted with a number of Public Relations (PR) assignments. During this time I realised that there was a gap in the market when it came to research and PR. In 2005 (with the blessing and support of Adele Lucas), I started Reputation Matters, with a key focus on measuring reputations. We have develop a research tool, the Repudometer® that scientifically measures an organisation’s reputation.  We look at the whole organisation to see what is building or breaking down their reputations. From these results, we are able to quantify an organisation’s reputation, identify and bridge the organisational gaps and strengthen their reputation through customised communication initiatives.
