I thoroughly enjoyed working with the “Greater Than” team during the TFG Gift Card campaign. Their organization and correspondence was timeous and thorough which allowed me, as the ambassador, to communicate the brand message accurately to my followers and influence circles. I look forward to working with them in the near future.”

“This is to confirm that Greater Than has handled the publicity for Spoilt Hair & Beauty. In their tenure as our PR partner, we have seen an increase in revenue of up to 30%, our name has been highly publicized both in print and on the web and all our events planned and coordinated have been a resounding success! We at Spoilt Hair & Beauty can recommend Greater Than with the greatest confidence to add value to any business.”

“Greater Than have managed the MWEB Connect PR account for two years and they have handled this challenge with a great mix of expertise and enthusiasm. The team have excellent media relationships and an in-depth understanding of our industry. During the time they have worked on the account they have secured remarkable coverage for MWEB in highly relevant publications. The Greater Than team have a “can-do” attitude which makes the working relationship an enjoyable one. They’re a results-driven agency and a key partner of MWEB Connect’s.”

“”Greater Than worked closely with us on our Gift Card launch in late 2009. It was very successful, so much so that TFG won a Gold Prism award for the launch, which included the launch event, managed by Greater Than. They have continued to conceptualize and implement awareness campaigns for our Gift Card range at key gift giving times in line with our strategy. We recently ran a Gift Card design competition targeting tertiary institutions around the country. Greater Than were our key business partner on this project, handling all the operational aspects of the campaign, as well as the social media component. I find the team at Greater Than a pleasure to work with; they are professional, efficient and pro-active and I would not hesitate to recommend them for a comprehensive PR campaign or event management.”

“An impressive guest list, top notch venue, quality entertainment and a relaxed host all bare testament to an event by a high calibre PR company. Galia Kerbel and her team at Greater Than ticked all these boxes, at the launch of The Entertainer Cape Town, with flair and professionalism. They’re a highly recommended company; one which I look forward to working with again. And again.”

“Working with Galia and the Greater than team is always a pleasure as they’re all totally on the ball and crazy-passionate about what they do. Nobody turns down an invite to a Greater Than event because it’s always going to be the type of thing that gets the right people talking, not to mention lots of fun. Still, there’s one thing they take very seriously and that’s effective PR with measurable results for which they’re renowned. In fact, the only thing heavier than Galia’s bulging contact book is the shelf on which they rack up all their PRISM awards. If you need a PR company to help take your business to the next level, Greater Than is one of the best.”

”I’ve had the pleasure of attending a number of wonderful Greater Than events over the years and have come to know Galia Kerbel and her team’s events as outstanding and truly world class!’ They are simply the best at creating unforgettable experiences with their trademark attention to detail, in some of the most exquisite and original venues- with great guests, wonderful entertainment and ambience and mouth-watering cuisine. There are always wonderful memories created! Whether it’s an intimate or larger ‘Greater Than’ event, Galia and her team’s signature personal touch always makes one feel like a special guest and The Greater Than team are professional and discreet, wonderfully warm and a pleasure to deal with.’

“I have been privy to the work of Greater Than for the last 4 years and during the time I worked with and attended their events I became very familiar with Greater Than’s creativity, attention to detail and work ethic and am happy to share my impressions with you. I have great respect for Greater Than and feel that as a company they would be an asset to any organization, brand or clients. I feel Greater Than leadership traits in the form of Galia has been the secret of the company because of her ability to satisfy clients’ needs and also because of her network of people she has access to, from celebrities to corporates and especially her media networks. Finally, Greater Than’s biggest asset is their ability to work as a team and that coupled with their strong work ethic and integrity makes them one of the top PR companies in South Africa.”

The Gremlin has an established readership of 2200+ business owners and senior managers on the Garden Route – many of them IT specialists – who frequently comment positively on the quality and relevance of articles published by Greater Than. The president of the George Business Chamber recently made mention of the MWEB Opinion Pieces and Press Releases as being particularly informative. The articles are always well written and definitely add value to my newspaper.”

“Greater Than provides consistent editorial that gives us a strong overview of what their client, MWEB, is currently doing in the market, and how this relates to the SME sector, which is our area of focus. This is an excellent resource for us when we are looking for angles, who to contact for advice and expert commentary, and what the latest trends in the ICT sector are.”

“Greater Than has become an invaluable source of credible PR into my organisation. In the short time that I have been following them I am unwittingly drawn to their staff’s enthusiasm, dedication and passion for PR. I have always found their PR to be topical and relevant which has added significant value to my business. Greater Than gives me the impression that they are constantly aiming for the sky and looking for ways to add value to their partners.

“I have been receiving material from Greater Than for a relatively brief time, but I have been impressed with the writing and relevance of the material submitted, be it MWEB-related or not. As you might appreciate, I receive a huge number of releases every day, so ‘making the cut’ is by no means easy; of their submissions thus far, however, a significant proportion have indeed ‘made the cut’. I enjoy working with the Greater Than team.”

“Our experience with Greater Than has been above expectations from a media point of view.

Steven Slotow

“Greater Than have come to embody the Harley-Davidson brand for me, such is their commitment to their clients. The account managers are efficient and helpful without crossing that thin-line of “annoying” that other PR companies do. They’re never too busy or unavailable and the required info is sent through promptly. I feel like they’re a lot closer than they are, considering I’m in Jozi and they’re in Cape Town.”

Evan-Lee Courie

“The most important step when starting a company is selecting a name. The name should convey the expertise, value and uniqueness of the company’s service offering. The greater than sign (>) is generally used as a symbol to show inequality between two numbers or expressions. Over the years, my experience with the team at Greater Than has been exactly this. The combined team effort portrays the skills and knowledge needed in the public relations industry. Not only do they value their clients, but they have a unique approach to doing business. This formula is exactly what sets Greater Than apart from the rest and I continue to believe that they are a true reflection of the symbol – greater than the other.”

“I had the pleasure of working with the dedicated team of GreaterThan as part of a multinational client’s product launch in Cape Town. I witnessed intimately how the experience they created brought value and fun to my @CapeTown Twitter followers – and a high level of trust between all involved led to a successful campaign. As @iAmnotMany it is important to me as a freelance content curator to link with reputable and professional media and publicity partners that know how communicate with integrity. In GreaterThan PR there is such an agency to be found – without reservation.”

“In the interactions that I have had with Galia and her Greater Than team, I found them to be incredibly passionate, determined, easily accessible and highly enthusiastic.

Alan Campbell

“Greater Than was contracted to fulfil the PR function for Premier Hotels & Resorts and I had the privilege of working with Galia and her team from May 2015 – December 2015 in my role as Group Brand Manager. During this time I found Greater Than to be an engaging partner, always keen to learn about our company, business objectives and strategic plans with a view to pro-active recommendations of how additional value, exposure and returns could be leveraged. Galia’s ability to build content and gain exposure from the smallest business development to large-scale projects was truly impressive and the innovative ways in which she and the Greater Than team set about enhancing our existing marketing efforts were always on point. I can highly recommend Greater Than and continue to praise their passion for clients whenever the opportunity presents itself.”

“I’ve been at Food24.com (Africa’s biggest food website) for 8 years and had many dealings with different PR companies and brand representatives. A few of those stand out head and shoulders above the rest. Greater Than is certainly one of those companies that delivers quality service: in all their correspondence, the events they co-ordinate and the personal touches they put on everything they do. The brands they represent are a testimony to their professionalism and enthusiasm for all things great. Being a small agency Galia Kerbel leads by example from the front and her energy is apparent in everything Greater Than does. I have been particularly impressed with the dedication that Greater Than has shown to the Green Monday SA cause. This is a global cause that potentially poses quite a challenge to meat-loving South Africans, but Galia and her team have met that challenge head on and have assembled some big South African influencers for the cause, and are going full steam ahead! Personally I hope to see big success with this campaign.”

Amy Rankin

“I’ve dealt with Greater Than a number of times over the past few years relating to different brands and events and I’ve always found the agency to be reliable, quick to send info and images and great to deal with in general. I believe the agency has a great number of connections in South Africa, including bloggers, magazine editors and freelance writers. I’ve attended many successful events hosted by the agency and look forward to attending many more in the future! It’s integral for PR companies to develop good relationships within the media industry and I’ve found that Galia and her team have been excellent at establishing and maintaining those relationships.”

“I’ve been working with Greater Than for over three years and have always been impressed with their ability to consistently host high quality events while prioritising personal relationships with the people that they work with. Greater Than manages the PR for a diverse range of clients and it is testament to their strong network of traditional print and television media and their growing network of online media outlets that they always exceed their clients’ expectations. I look forward to seeing how Greater Than grows in 2016 and to continuing our relationship with them.”

“Having worked as editor for over a decade I’ve dealt with what feels like hundreds of public relationship companies and Galia and the team at Greater Than are one of my favourites to work with thanks to their professionalism, great communication and natural geniality. When it comes to spreading the news, they’re one of few companies that do it best.”
