“Anneleigh will say it as it is. Even if it is the stuff one does not want to hear. She has the courage to say what needs to be said, but in a manner that is not hurtful or disrespectful. And she will stick to her guns and not waver from whatever her learned, considered opinion is. A real tough cookie!

Her expertise and acute understanding of branding and marketing is hard to miss. Her passion for this field is contagious and makes her an eternal scholar who is always at the leading edge of the craft.

Anneleigh is one of the smartest, wisest and most well-read people I have the privilege of working with, and she will go out of her way to do whatever she can for people she cares for, whether those are family, friends or clients.” – Handri Conradie (MD and Founder, At Source Handmade Foods)


“Anneleigh was engaged by Yellowtail to assist us with our value proposition and implementation for a new business we were launching. She is clearly a specialist in her area, with extensive experience and I found her to be very professional and easy to work with. Her deliverables are top notch and always within time. I have the utmost trust and confidence in her ability and output and she has never disappointed. I will continue to use her services and recommend her without hesitation.” – Adrian van Stolk (CEO, Yellowtail Consulting)


“Your Value Proposition workshop continues to inspire a year on. You enabled me to define my product’s uniqueness and clarified and affirmed my personal strengths. You enabled me to offer service that is focused, I believe in and am passionate about. Consequently I can relax and be myself with clients, confident that I am giving them the service they are looking for. The referral business I have had proves the point!  Your superb professionalism, relaxed friendliness and real concern for me and my new business was and is inspirational. Thank you!” – Tim Attwell (Founder, Cape Mountain & Field)


“Anneleigh worked with me on my value proposition for Jürgen’s Photography. My experience of going through this process with her identified the core value for my business. Her process includes creative and structural thinking. Using both sides of the brain gave me a more holistic view on my value proposition. The value proposition guides me not only in my marketing efforts, but also in strategic decisions for my business.” – Jurgen Banda-Hansmann (Jurgen’s Photography)

“Anneleigh Jacobsen’s Value Proposition Model workshop was one of the best things our organisation experienced this year. The model is an excellent tool and by working through it, we gained a clearer understanding of the spirit and ethos of our organisation and how this relates to the work we do. As a result, we are now able to approach businesses more effectively, and we are able to look at our organisation from a business perspective too. Anneleigh is an excellent facilitator. Her years of experience working with small and large businesses, is evident. Through her clear guidance, and understanding the integral role of brand development for an organisation’s success, we are able to communicate the heart and essence of I Am Somebody! in a way that everyone understands. As a result we have developed a number of relationships with businesses and NPOs who are interested in partnering with us to support our work.” – Toni Stuart and Nicole le Roux (co-directors: I Am Somebody!)
