Bridgette Macheke is the Founder and PR Director of MoonDawn Media. She holds a qualification in Public Relations from the University of Cape Town (UCT) and has vast experience in the field of public relations and marketing. She has led the young public relations company from its inception in June 2015 and has since proven herself as a trendsetting and passionate PR executive with a strong drive to challenge the status quo. The business has grown from a single-woman show to become a team of six strong professionals.
Bridgette attributes her success to her unfailing optimism and passion for PR and marketing. She has combined her skills and experience in marketing and publicity with her in-depth knowledge of the media to secure consistent and valuable media exposure on behalf of her clients.
Having achieved measurable success in the South African PR industry, Bridgette was nominated for a PRISM Award in the category ‘Best Up and Coming PR Professional for 2015’ and is recognized as one of the top professionals in the industry.
At MoonDawn Media and Communications, Samu’s role entails developing and executing public relations campaigns that integrate with our clients’ marketing strategies. Her PR passion is driven by the vigour to help clients uncover, create and amplify their brand stories through goal-oriented public relations. She believes in the power of relationships, and reiterates that great relationships are the cornerstone of success in the PR game.
Backed by her strong relations with a network of targeted and relevant media houses that we partner with to share our clients’ stories, going around her day-to-day duties – including pitching story ideas to media, arranging interviews, speaking engagements and other media opportunities for her client base – is her greatest shot of adrenaline. Samu officially received her media qualification from Boston Media House in 2017. That it took her some extra two years to finally accomplish her dream qualification due to challenges beyond her control is a true indicator of her never-say-die attitude, which has been the backbone of her early success in her young PR career.
Taking a look at Samu’s day-to-day activities at MoonDawn Media, from monitoring the media to reviewing current campaigns, it seems as though there are few schedules more hectic than that of someone working in the PR environment, especially at a PR firm that is relentlessly going up!
She has always been a whiz with numbers, and a career in finance was a natural progression for MoonDawn Media’s finance manager. With her extensive experience and detail-oriented approach, Nonhlanhla has previously helped companies in different spheres of business make sound financial decisions, and she has since been entrusted with the critical accounting functions at MoonDawn Media & Communications to keep the young and trendy company financial solvent and compliant.
After completing a certificate in Pastel Payroll, she went on to acquire a Diploma in Bookkeeping, and is currently completing her Bachelor of Accounting Science, majoring in Financial Accounting, through the University of South Africa. She is also a registered tax practitioner with the South African Institute of Tax.
Fumani is the brains behind MoonDawn Media and Communications’ digital strategy. In a rapidly changing “Digital First” economy, Fumani has spent many years transforming brands and businesses to take a “Digital First” approach to their marketing. At MoonDawn, he oversees the entire digital marketing activities for all our clients’ marketing strategies. He works closely with clients to create long-term plans and goals for all their digital marketing platforms. Fumani holds a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce from Rhodes University. Driven by his love for everything digital, after his degree, he went on to acquire a graphic design certificate from the University of Cape Town, before attaining a few other digital marketing certifications from leading marketing and technology pacesetters such as Hubspot and Google.
One would wonder why someone who majored in management and economics for his bachelor of Commerce degree chose this career path! Fumani is a “sucker for all things digital”, that’s in his own words. His biggest shot of adrenaline is social commerce, as well as social and digital marketing trends. He is obsessed by the impact that technology has had on consumer behaviour, and the future of marketing in a digital first economy. As a creative individual, this career allows him to continuously challenge himself to the limits. “I love working with people and finding solutions to their problems,” he says.
As a Digital Marketing and Social Media Coordinator at MoonDawn Media, Lwazi is responsible for the coordination of our clients’ external online and digital presence so as to increase brand awareness. He is also responsible for the development and implementation of digital and social media campaigns and measures their impact accordingly. Lwazi also takes the responsibility of ensuring appropriate and effective presentation of the brands and their messages across the relevant digital platforms. His role is extensive, just like the digital marketing profession itself – it’s inexhaustible.
The limitless nature of the profession is a major reason why Lwazi goes nuts about digital marketing. To start with, he lives the basic meaning of his own name “Lwazi” – which means knowledge, and with knowledge comes information and growth. Lwazi believes that digital marketing as a career gives him exactly that – the opportunity to evolve and grow. He is of the view that, as a fairly new concept, digital marketing has no limits yet, and there is a large scope of skill one can learn and develop
