“Working with Julie was an enjoyable, interesting and collaborative process. Julie’s ability to entrench herself in Acceleration and the space in which we operate was invaluable. This meant that she was able to challenge the thinking and these debates resulted in some extraordinarily insightful strategy. I would work with and recommend her agency ID&B at every turn, they will truly help you to develop a world-class leadership brand.”

 

Juliet Mey, Global Marketing Director, Acceleration, WPP Group

"Julie's work for Kinektek has been phenomenal. She guided us through a comprehensive re-branding of the entire business from the ground up. Her extensive grasp of brand and design strategy has enabled our business to establish systems and frameworks to accommodate all of our design requirements across all of our platforms and solutions. Beyond her strategic and business acumen, her creative and aesthetic design skills are really first class."

 

Matthew Slaven, CEO, Kinektek

“Julie took our team on an educational journey in search of the soul of the company by unpacking complex concepts and linking them in an ingenious way. She has a very calm disposition, listens actively, and is very articulate. I found her humble, accommodating and generous with her expertise. Her way of working is empowering as it is based on co-creation. It is worth noting that her input was invaluable and the project was a success.”

 

Nebu Phohlela, Project Manager, Group Management Framework Project, PetroSA (South African state owned entity)

"Julie played an immense role to prepare and empower the Simera Group to launch onto the global stage. What impressed me most was her innate capability to rapidly understand our environment and moreover, decompose our initial business objectives into clearly articulated work breakdown structures with well-defined goals.  She approached the work with a rather unique combination of out of the box creativity and well-structured execution, which resonated with our systems engineering foundations."
