ADVISORY

Through my Writing, Speaking and Advisory work, I sell five things:

Time

By fussing over where punctuation marks should be placed in your sentences, I sell you back time, so you can focus on other things.

Energy

I save you energy in a world that moves at breakneck speed and demands you at your best (it’s exhausting!) With my skills, I take off writing and other storytelling matters off your plate.

Knowledge

A new perspective, a new take on something goes a long way. And in that new take, lies an opportunity to access new knowledge to help you use words in a different way and growth at the back of that.

Eloquence

Your stories are best served to your audience with a great command of language and clarity.


SOCIAL MEDIA

Social-Media-Covering the #SheConquersWellness2018 activation in Mthatha, Eastern Cape for loveLife and the National Department of Health.

With an insatiable appetite for learning and mastering varied ways of storytelling, it was inevitable jumping into the vast, rowdy and exhilarating social media ocean. For one, I sought to learn how the use of the internet can enhance a human being’s story (an organisation’s, too, of course); two, express myself, connect with the world and through a combination of talents and superpowers, help other people around the world do the same and more.

Live Social Media Reporting

For different types of events:

  • Strategy development for events
  • Image and video publishing and captioning (content)

Consider the live social media storytelling needs of your event, be it a business focused conference or fashion poetry show, eloquently sorted.

Content Creation & Development

  • For individuals
  • Organisations
  • Different types of Projects

Content (although now a buzzword that will evaporate at some point, when the world changes the way it consumes its stories) is the bedrock of digital interaction. Authentic stories, on the other hand, underpin human interactions — that is the focus of my writing and content development.

Strategy Development

  • Social Media for Business

I am passionate about connecting dots, interrogating societal and by extension, business challenges. Strategy-making then becomes a natural place for me to express myself by combining the ways in which we communicate with each other, with organisations and how all that can culminate into growth and forward movement for all partners involved.

RETHINK by Themba Jay

About

Tagline \ Philosophy

Go ahead. Remake yourself.

Ambition

My intention with ReThink by Themba Jay is to help restart myself and help other human beings rethink themselves, the way they see and tell personal stories and in turn, add value in some part of their lives — academia, business, personal project, career, et cetera.

The business of being human is a constantly moving target, with a lot of how-we-are-supposed-to’s and ruthless world changes — ReThinking Yourself just might be what you need to get un-stuck or increase your progress.
