As a relatively unknown person I was nominated to stand for Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of a very prominent and the largest Golf Estate in South Africa.This nomination was done in September 2010, less than two months from election time! It was an unplanned event for me and therefore had no campaign planned of any sort whatsoever. I approached Mike Garner from IGA in desperation for help.
From the time I briefed Mike,he took control and ownership of the entire campaign. Very soon I was presented with a comprehensive strategic election campaign that was not only professional, but very structured and focused on the key areas. The diversified plan included printed material, e-mail and sms campaigns and personal meetings and appearances that proofed to be extremely effective. They managed the campaign diligently and guided me into an unknown world and before I knew it I was well known brand and a major threat to the existing Chairperson thanks to a hugely successful campaign. Needless to say, the results exceeded expectations by far.
I can highly recommend the services of IGA for writing and executing a strategic marketing plan effectively, not only for an election campaign, but also part of a strategic business plan.

Letter of appreciation: Art of Management.
On 15 August 2008, I was fortunate enough to have had a life changing experience.
It was purely by chance that I came to hear about the remarkable combination of life-, management and personal skills courses that you combine with the opportunity to create a piece of art. Despite previous personal attempts at being creative, I decided that it might be a good idea to involve my whole management team to not just the skills aspect of your course, but the creative aspect as well.
Right from the word go my dealings with you were of complete professionalism. Your holistic approach to skills development and personal development convinced me that you were indeed non-conformist in your approach and presentation.
The insights you provided me with during the personality profiling, the personal conversations we’ve had regarding my individual life skills and test results during the day’s proceeding, and the opportunity to spend a day with an individual that obviously have so much to teach and give, was life changing.
You were indeed an inspiration. The work of art I produced during the afternoon session is currently hanging on the wall above my bed. It is a constant reminder, every morning when I open my eyes and look at it, that I am a unique human being, someone that contributes to life on a daily bases.
I can’t help but quote Kahlil Gibran in conclusion:
“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”

“In the day-to-day struggle to progress in business we all need tangible tools to empower our staff and ourselves. I believed an MBA at a top university would bring me all that I needed. The MBA was great, but I experienced truly great value by attending IGA courses.
In a single day of listening to Kim I have been empowered with more, and better tools than an entire MBA could offer me.”
