SOME OF OUR WORK
Klawervlei Stud contracted Saige to conduct a comprehensive review of their enterprise. A strategic plan was developed leading to a restructuring. The new brand positioning was completed and implemented.
Saige was given the opportunity to pitch for the management of the Health Products Association including running the Secretariate, technical overview, and marketing and communication of the Association.
The thoroughbred racing industry suffered significant losses while its very existence was threatened as a result of the lockdown and consequent contraction of the economy. The partners of Klawervlei appointed Saige to conduct an organisational review ensuring Klawervlei’s continued long-term sustainability.
Saige and Klawervlei collaborated using the Saige Activation Model. The original purpose was reviewed. The values were tested for relevance and appropriateness. The purpose was determined. A strategic plan was developed leading to a restructuring to ensure the form supported the new function. A comprehensive marketing plan was developed to ensure the repositioning was communicated clearly and unambiguously; the website was designed accordingly, the corporate image aligned to purpose, and the social media strategy compiled to ensure the repositioning was communicated.
Amidst the retirement of key staff, a tough economic period, declining membership and enormous challenges for the complimentary health industry due to changes in legislation, the HPA approached Saige to manage and reposition the Association.
After a full review of the HPA business model, its members, past members, value proposition and the proposed legislation changes, Saige repositioned the Association and operational model. This has resulted in a growing and engaged membership base, thereby ensuring the sustainability of the Association.
Currently, Saige runs the full Secretariate for the HPA, which includes the management of their accounts, their members, associated members, communication, website, full portfolio, annual general meetings, general meetings, events, webinars, and the liaison with the South African Government with regards to technical and legislative issues.
