Managing Partner: Events & Promotions

Known for her outstanding, mind-blowing events in corporate marketing, Sunita aka ‘The Event Fundi’ is the only person you need to plan and execute any event. With a deep understanding of events, over three decades of experience and working for some of SA’s largest conglomerates, Sunita pours excellence, perfection and pragmatism into what may seem as the very chaotic world of events. 

There is magic in events, the sparkle and experience comes from being able to work with people, and her strongest super power, being able to lead with empathy, understanding and drive. 

Sunita is passionate about event management and understands that it is not for everyone, “There is much more to an event than a theme and a guest list,” she explained.

We understand that each brand is unique and we strive to bring this uniqueness to the forefront. Our solutions incorporate unique, innovative and creative approaches, ideas and campaigns.

With any sort of publicity – there is a creative approach that is needed in order to gain the accurate target audiences’ attention. We are creative specialists in B2B, B2C, B2B2C.
