“I have employed Stephan over the past two years to help us facilitate a BEE transaction from pre-feasibility all the way through to conclusion. With his help, we achieved a valuation of far more than twice our initial estimate. Even better, we our new partners bring real value to our business, and they are a great match for our corporate culture.”

“Stephan helped us win a complex tender bid worth more than R3-billion. His broad experience, proven methods, and insights were invaluable. It helped us to get traction and maintain momentum throughout a particularly challenging bid development project. We plan to use him on many more projects in the future.”
