Taff Nemusese
Director of Business Development

My favourite thing about digital marketing is:
Digital Marketing is one field that excites me because it constantly transforms. It is one component of marketing that will continue to take the lead in driving the 4IR, and being actively a part of this era is one of my favourite things!

My most significant personal accomplishment:
The ability to transform a client’s business from barely breaking even to being the most recognized in its field nationally over a short period. I advocate for supporting neglected communities, and this specific business serves a less fortunate community. Watching them rise simply because of online exposure they never had is one thing that warms my heart and pushes me to always believe in and nurture something, even if no one else understands.

Fun Fact:
I love speed and regularly go on hot laps at motoring events and races at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit. It is the only current motor racing facility on the African continent to be certified by the Federation International de l’Automobile for meeting international standards.

Fun Fact:
Winning a ticket to witness Nelson Mandela’s inauguration in 1994 as president in the SA government buildings, Cape town, in the presence of the late Queen Elizabeth II and outgoing President De Klerk. As they walked past me, I could have touched them! A memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience…unforgettable.
