I'm Thembe Khumalo, an award-winning storyteller and the founder of Brandbuilder Africa. I love helping entrepreneurial leaders tell their best stories. These stories go to the heart of your brand identity, answering the question: Who are you, and why do you matter? Whether you are a corporate executive, a small business owner, or striking out as a solopreneur, you can always rely on the power of your unique story to achieve your business and career goals.
You see, we are telling stories in different ways all the time - your business name, financial reports, sales promotions, and even job title are all parts of a story you tell without realising it. My job is to help you intentionally craft your best story into a compelling brand that delivers impact and income.
I started my consulting firm, Brandbuilder Africa because after working in advertising and media for many years, I wanted to make professional brand-building services accessible for small and medium-sized businesses in Africa. More than this, I wanted to show how we could leverage innovation for effective marketing and communication projects.
At Brandbuilder, we serve a wide range of businesses and not-for-profits, helping them clarify the most important parts of their story, so they can reach the right audiences to achieve visibility and growth. We have a range of done-for-you services that we offer through our team of highly experienced and skilled consultants. We understand your communication struggles, because we’ve all been where you are.
For entrepreneurs and executives who want to learn how to master branding processes for themselves, we have Brandbuilder Academy, a suite of online courses and digital products that can help you get head at your own pace.And, if you're serious about investing in yourself, we have a signature programme called
Meant for More.
This personal branding journey examines the key considerations of your individual life journey - your goals, strengths and the resources you need to achieve them. It's a six week one-on-one coaching programme for those who recognise that their lives have to count for more than what they're doing now.
So, if you're ready to realise your potential, this one is for you!
