What is your biggest success?
Clinching the PR account of representing Harmony Gold, a respected and major player in the Gold Mining industry. Working with blue chip companies.
What has been your biggest hurdle?
Particularly in film and Television it's been difficult to get commissions from broadcasters. Besides being cash strapped, but also it's a 'who do you know' industry so it is frustrating making inroads at times. Also we use a large amount of freelancers in our industry, growing the company to have a permanent team working has been tough as it's a project by project industry and you can't keep people on after a project is completed.
