"We partner with world-class clients and professional, inspirational people. Read what some of them have to say about us:"
We have included some comments from our COOL clients…
"I have had the pleasure of working with Debbie Whittaker and her Coolcumba team for over 15 years. From delivering events on a massive scale for Microsoft, Oracle and Sun Microsystems, all the way through to working with SMEs with limited budgets, Debbie has always added measurable value to her clients.
She is able to interpret clients’ needs, match them to the trends of the industry at that time and produce incredible results. Never one to shy away from a challenge, the Coolcumba team has always been able to produce an ROI that is enviable in the world of marketing, where most companies avoid addressing this issue.
I have worked with Debbie in areas as diverse as social media planning, event concepts and production and thought leadership and PR. Coolcumba has added enough value to me as a client, that I have been a return customer and enthusiastic referral partner of her business for over a decade. "

"I first had the privilege of working with Debbie in the field of marketing research and was immediately blown away by her professionalism and her ability to manage the complex dynamics with our large enterprise and produce the detailed results we expected and more.
I therefore had no hesitation in working with her and her team on our GTM and product launch which she once again exceeded our expectations by providing innovative thinking and execution.
The entire process was seamless and smooth, while exhibiting strong leadership skills, nothing was too much for her and her team and made the customer experience delightful!
I look forward to working with Debbie and her team when the opportunity arises again and feel very comfortable in recommending Debbie and her team."

"Just wanted to give you feedback on our the Cloud Day we had at the Indaba Hotel yesterday. In a nutshell, the day was a huge success! The interaction levels were excellent, and the customers were really interested to take this further.
I would like to thank everybody involved, especially local marketing team with Debbie and William from Coolcumba who ensured everything ran like clockwork - especially seeing that we changed the venue at the last minute, and combined the event with the GB event.
A special thanks to Pascal, our 'guest of honor' - without your participation and guidance, we would not have been able to pull it off! Lastly, a special thanks to all the South African speakers who went out of their way to familiarize themselves with the new content and delivered outstanding presentations. Well done to all - I am really looking forward to see the feedback and pipeline created!"
