About Page image

In addition to corporate communications and strategy, Corporate Image has a consumer brand and entertainment division that specialises in building brand equity, engaging opinion formers and managing media relations, including traditional media channels and special and online platforms.

The company has a strong yet broad client-base, including some of South Africa’s best known brands and blue chip companies. Inherent in our dealings with all clients is an exclusivity agreement, which precludes our working for any competitor in any sector. Most of Corporate Image’s key clients have been retained for a decade or more or at least since inception.

Along with senior communications professionals, we hire specialist writers, former journalists and researchers, who all bring a degree of expertise to a client’s business. Our staff complement includes extensive local and international experience and skills, from social media to public issues management and publicity.

Awards

Corporate Image has won a number of international and local awards for our client work.

Internationally, we were awarded Best Public Relations & Communications Agency in South Africa at the 2019 MEA Markets African Business Excellence Awards. We have also won two International Public Relations Association (IPRA) Awards – one for the Top Institutional Campaign globally and another for the Best Campaign Using Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Research in Communications globally.

Our local awards include a 2015 African Excellence Award for Content Marketing Gold, a 2013 Excellence in Public Relations (Gold Circle Award), and various SA Financial Mail PRISM Gold & Veracity Awards.

This said, while we have been pleased each time we’ve won an award, it has usually been when a client or partner agency has nominated us. We do not ordinarily enter awards. Our work is confidential and very sensitive – the industry is awash with awards for minor-scale and often product-related PR, which we do not do.
