By leveraging exceptional insights with a particularly deep appreciation of socio-economic development through investment and innovation, the consultancy team at Djembe offers an unparalleled emphasis on clients and projects focused on the African region‘s development.
Staffed with multilingual local and international consultants, Djembe’s client teams have worked for numerous types of organisations over recent years, particularly pan-African and multinational companies and governmental related entities in 30 of the 54 African countries.
Djembe‘s powerful proposition has already benefited new clients during the consultancy’s soft launch period, many of which are in critical sectors including consumer, education, finance, innovation, technology and trade development.
Djembe Consultants’ chief executive officer, Mitchell Prather, praised the ongoing commitment of the Djembe team during its soft-launch stating, “I am extremely proud to be leading the Djembe team. We were able to serve our clients, grow our business and expand during our launch period, which demonstrates our ability to deliver tangible results whilst establishing a lean and highly ambitious organisation.
“Our goal is to continue building a unique, organically grown communications consultancy committed to changing and amplifying an African narrative founded on opportunity, growth, inclusion and innovation.”
The consultancy’s professionals have previously won several leading industry awards and recognitions for their African-rooted approach. This experience provides Djembe with a unique authenticity and cultural understanding, which will be a critical element in supporting the consultancy’s future growth and that of its clients.
