“I contracted Michelle of Brandfundi in 2018 following a request to my business network for a high quality, owner run, bespoke Investor Relations and Communications company. She came highly recommended for my particular requirements. At the time I was co-founder and CEO of UBUCore (Proprietary) Limited, a blockchain based financial services startup founded in 2016 and preparing for a significant multi-market launch, including several digital asset exchange listings. Michelle proved to be as recommended, being highly professional, proactive, extremely punctual and strategic. Given that blockchain financial assets were new to the market, she had a lot to learn in a short timeframe and proved more than equal to the task. She is well connected and reputed in the financial publishing industry (where we were solely focused) and did a wonderful job of keeping many balls juggling simultaneously as we navigated our way around an unregulated space resulting in multiple changes to strategic and opportunistic thrusts throughout her tenure of about 18 months. Coming from a background in marketing communications, I have owned and run multi-disciplinary service agencies, including investor and public relations firms, and the old adage of what you put in equates to what you get out holds firm. Michelle had a tough task following the incessant changes we faced and never once faltered. That we didn’t use her to capacity was of our own making, and sadly were never able to test her capabilities fully. Michelle is quiet, attentive, discreet and a true professional. That said, she is no pushover and is not an order-taker, but quietly confident, firm and persuasive. She was a genuine pleasure to work with and I would engage her again without hesitation. When you work with Brandfundi, you work with Michelle. That is a rare and valuable asset to any business in a awash with medium and large players where the initial engagement is with the senior partners, whereafter you rarely see them again.”
