Rowene Johnston recommends Suze Bouwer RedMatchstick:  2 March 2020 at 07:50I had a breakthrough session with Suze – it was the best hour I have spent on my marketing strategy this year!

Suze shares her knowledge and insight in a straight forward and helpful way. Her tips are incredibly useful. I highly recommend that you book a break through session with Suze Bouwer before you spend one more minute thinking about your marketing strategy and or marketing plan.

She put me on the right path and I know she will do the same for you!

Sandra Slabbert recommends Suze Bouwer RedMatchstick:  4 December 2019I am so excited. I recently completed the marketing workshops with Suze and today had my complimentary 1-hour Free Marketing Consultation.

We completed my customer avatar and can now focus on marketing to the right audience.
I am also hugely excited about my new business Facebook name and will implement the suggested changes to the page in December.
Suze, thank you sharing your passion for marketing. You are very knowledgeable and I always learn something of value when I engage with you.
I highly recommend business owners to contact Suze if you want to understand how to market your business. Suze will show you how you can do this effectively or it will empower you with knowledge of how it’s done if you decide to outsource it.
